Problem Solving - Forum Guide to Fuses - E85 and E86

Post by Adamski » Fri Jun 15, 2012 12:08 am

Ok, so we've had a few members report problems associated with fuses.

I thought I would pull together this guide to fuses, and their functions so that any members searching for fuse related issues would arrive here in future. I've organised the thread so that anyone searching can find the specific terms. There's a picture at the bottom of this post with the fuse numbers and their relative positions :thumbsup:

Updated with a picture of how to access the fuse box. The BMW manual doesn't do a good job of explaining how to access

Very useful info guys! Keep in mind there are some differences between original and facelift versions. The fuse for the auto-dim mirror changed, as one example. Most are the same though.

Adamski

I salute you sir

This was very useful to me today when the fuse has blown to the cigarette lighter (really the tom tom power and iphone charger) and I was faced with a bank of 50 ish fuses.

15 amps Crickey I wonder how that has blown but have installed the auto roof upgrade recently. Anyone else have this problem?

Anyway thanks :D

I've just been looking at this to figure out what fuse is best to tap into to power a hidden bluetooth music streaming dongle thing and ended up putting this spreadsheet together of which items relate to which features. Thought it might be of use to other people, so here are some links to it as .xlsx and .pdf (they're on google drive, so hopefully will work, but let me know if you can't get them).

Super useful, as my fuse chart was missing. Thanks a lot for this.
