How to fit Harman Kardon individual button on E46 nfl?

Hello guys,

I really need somebody's help on this issue because I searched forums and sites and nothing came up.

I own a sedan version of the 328i nfl version. It didn't have any optionals so i started to retrofit everything.

I managed to find the complete Harman Kardon system but with no harman kardon dashboard button.

Because my car has idividual buttons and not the console with all the buttons i had to search and find the individual harman kardon button. I ordered it from BMW original and now i am in the situation that i cannot find any schematics on how to connect it to my sound system.

The oem code for it is 61318363679.

Can anybody tell me how to connect the pins from the button to the sound system?

I attached a picture with my current console and with the button.
I would deeply appreciate any help.

I will help you out a bit



Bmw does not seem to prewire for options unlike many other manufacturers. Means nearly every car is wired different depending on options. Such a PITA to retro anything.

Is it 4 pins?

The wds diagrams are here as well as all the pin connections and colors.

The button adds the spacial feature. Also the HK system is connected to the VSS via the cluster to the amp and woofer amp (TAA)

The switching center in the console will have to be custom wired

http://www.bmw-planet.com/diagrams/r.../e46/index.htm

e46 Body->>>>Audio Visual ->>>>Radio. Pick your model.

If you need help using WDS let me know its pretty intuitive.

There is also a section for the switching center

Let me know if you need additional assistance.

I worked with the radio system a good bit.

I managed to open WDS after installing Java and it works only on Internet explorer.

I browsed to body - audio -radio - i choose usa lhd 1998 with top hifi system (harman kardon). The switch is coded S303. If i push the green title above the switch nothing happens. It could be a java problem, or browser...

Anyway, my button has 6 pins. In this diagram from what i understand on pin goes to the light module (this should be the illumination of the button), one goes to the HK amplifier - this shoul be on/off, one goes to a resistance? and one goes to ground (i think).

My questions are:

-is there another switch diagram for a button with 6 pins?
-how can i know wich pin goes to what?

Thank you very much for your help!

Solved! Installed virtual machine on windows 7, installed xp mode, downloaded wds.iso, mounted in deamon tools, launched with IE 6 and after a little bit of search, i came up with the schematics (picture below).

As a conclusion:

Pin no5 of HK switch goes to pin 15 in HK amplifier - yellow/black colour wire
Pin no4 of hk switch goes to pin 14 in superior fuses box fuse F7 white/violet wire
Pin no6 of HK switch goes to pin 5 of X322 connect - gray/red wire
Pin no3 of HK switch goes to ground - brown wire
Pin no2 of HK switch - not used
Pin no1 of HK switch - not used

Thanks a lot!
