  • USB Splicing - Leave it to BMW to use non-standard colors....

    BMW has decided to use non-standard wire colors for their USB input port (at least on R56 Minis).

    Is anyone familiar with which wires match up to the standard colors? BMW on the left, standard USB cable on the right:

    being that you already cut a cable for this, couldn't you just ohm it out?

      I can't for the life of me find my multimeter, so I thought I'd give the interwebs a shot. Google isn't proving very helpful so far, hoping the forum front might prove more fruitful.

            and if you check the sale flyers, usually there is a harbor freight one with some coupons at the top-- usually a free item-- either the volt meter, flashlight, gloves, or screwdrivers.. i have 3 of those meters, and too many flashlights to count...(i believe my family is the reason that they added the "free item with purchase" clause...)

              Hey Wilco, did you end up working out which wires were which? Working on a similar project, so your notes would save me a lot of time.
