BMW Crankshaft Position Sensor Adapter Lead - Genuine BMW 12514592703

Referred to as an adapter lead

This harness is used when installing crankshaft position sensors that have an updated design without a lead from the sensor. The superseded version of the crank position sensor had an adapter lead built into the sensor but it was replaced by BMW with a sensor without an adapter. The old crank sensor came with an integrated lead built into the connector while the newer crank sensor doesn't. The new style crank sensor also operates at different voltages due to this change (12V vs. 5V) which is why the newer style harness has 4 connections. This adapter lead harness taps into the VANOS solenoid for the additional voltage required in order to supply the additional.

If your BMW has an older stlye crank sensor with the wire lead coming off of it, part number 12141744492 will need to also order this adapter lead. The new, updated crank sensor for this harness is part number 12141709616.

Perfect Fitment On My S52 M3

I had to replace my crankshaft sensor on my '97 M3 and decided to replace the adapter lead "while I was in there" because the current one I had on my car looked old and worn. I installed the new part without any issue.
