The fuse? You wrote your post as if there's only one fuse that controls the radio. What fuse nbr are you removing...and if so, is there a reason you're only removing that particular one and not any of the other fuses (front and/or rear) that control the (radio?).

Also, what do you mean by radio? The X5 can be optioned with the MID (multi-informational display) or Nav monitor...and in Europe and other countries some may have the the BMW Business Radio without MID. With the first two mentioned systems...the radio is incorporated into the in-dash cassette or in-dash CD player, or a separate unit under the cargo floor if you have the Nav monitor.

For example, you can see there's multiple fuses for the radio/Nav/CD changer system in my 06:
