77 02 8 551 897 Removes the guessing with BMW male plug and additional battery connectors

I have had a fair amount of trouble with intermittent connections in those BMW power outlets above the coils.

The problem is that the negative terminal doesn't have a good electrical connection to the connector.

Now I remove the connector and carefully solder the terminal to the connector after cleaning well with Deoxit and 600 grit paper.  This is important because I use that power outlet for my trickle charger, and that bad connection makes the charger look like the battery is charged while preventing the charger from charging the battery.

Geeez!!!  Now you tell us!  You had me thinking that pulling the fuses turned on the lights with the ignition off.

Banging my head against the wall...

Thats flocking hilarious!

Thanks for the link and PDF Volador. $12 is not bad for the 030-0111 plug. I guess I would have to cut off the SAE plug from the charger and screw the leads on the Hella plug.
Do any chargers come with the Hella or BMW Powerlet plug?
SAE to BMW plug

Power your electric jacket and undergarments from that outlet
Its wired direct to the battery
Plug your battery charger into it if it has the Hella or Powerlet BMW type male end connector

I've been in southern Ohio in January.  Winter down there is kinda wimpy compared to what comes down from the Great White North(a.k.a. Canada) to punish the more northern parts of this great country.

I pulled the fuses with the key in the off position, no lights. I turned the key to the on position and the headlight and dash lights lit. I was surprised that anything lit up, I figured everything was fused. So I was just thinking I'd ask this crew if this was how it was supposed to work.

It looks like from the diagram that there are leads with ring connectors at the end. These go on the + and - battery posts? they are not on there now. There is a battery tender SAE plug connected to the battery but that's it.
This Merit plug can also be used in reverse, to charge or tend the battery? You would need the charger lead to have the Hella or Powerlet BMW type male end connector?
I have not seen a charger with that type male plug, only the SAE type.
