Mein Auto: 1999 328i
my heater fuse keeps blowing

I keep blowing fuse #28, the heater/ac fuse. It controls the actual control unit in the car. This just started happening about a week or so ago. I have replaced it twice, same 5 amp fuse as the original and the size it calls for. Both have blown within a day. Any ideas on what might be causing this? I know its probably a bad unit or short somewhere but not sure where to start on these cars.

Just a few days ago my 325i did the exact same thing. The first day it was 100+ degrees when it happened. The next morning it happened again after I stopped for gas. Did you ever find out the cause?
