Mein Auto: 1990 BMW 525i
1990 525i blown fuse, smoke in cabin


Today when I started my 525i, none of the instrument panel gauges worked, nor was there any display. Shortly afterward, I noticed smoke coming from the vents.

checked the fuses, and fuse #1 is blown. Looking at what it does, I'm surprised the car even started!! However, the fuses associated with #1 (17 & 20) are fine.

I could just replace the fuse and hope for the best, but wondering if maybe there is a deeper problem.

Anyone have any idea what may have caused it to blow in the first place?
