2009 X5 fuse panel layout

looking for a picture -- need the liftgate fuse location. Also, panel folds down but underwires make it very difficult to access fuses, am i missing something?

Not sure if this is what you're looking for. I have an 08 X5 and this is correct for mine, even though it's for a 2011. Let me know if it's not what you're looking for and I'll try to help you.

Can either of you direct me to the location of the fuse panel. I thought it was under the three screw panel below the steering wheel. My problem is that the front power plug( lighter) is not working the other three work fine. Tks

FYI and future reference. Fuse panel is located on the right(passenger side) behind removable panel. Lift the soundproofing flap and there it is and on the right side the diagram is in a slot. for the power plugs note the symbol on the cargo compartment power plug. Diagram points you to 4 numbered panel slots and also cross references the fuse amp. for [power outlets they are 97, 111, etc a red fuse puller is on the panel and easy to use. Found the 111 slot fuse blown and bought new ones at auto store nothing needed from BMW. They come five to a package for $4.76. Back in business and power plug works. Fingers crossed it does not blow again which would mean electrical problem.

The fuse is located in the fuse box under the glove box, Fuse number 32. Use the diagram links in this thread for the exact physical location of the fuse.

fuse for nav display screen

Hello! Hoping someone can help me please! Our power (lighter) plugs weren't working in the car. Found the fuse box in the rear cargo area and located the power plug fuses 111, 113, 115 and 118. Swapped out blown one with one that worked from the Jap N icon one on the picture side. Front power plugged then worked. Realised the one we pulled out 137 has now done something to the nav screen as nothing comes up on the screen. We replaced fuse into 137 but still nothing happening. Any suggestions on what we can try? Any ideas on what fuse locations relate to the screen? Cheers!

Fuse for Nav screen display

Howskitz - did you have any luck ? I have a similar problem with no back light on the screen although all functions still work. Thought it might be a fuse but don't know which one. Looked at fuse legend but its very confusing, not clear which is fuse for display screen.

Anyone else able to help ?

Old thread resurrected I know..... But having a similar problem. iDrive screen just went blank yesterday. Appears to be back light. Is this a fuse issue or a whole display issue?

Oh ya, just obtained this new-to-me 2008 X5 3.0i three days ago.

Don't have any specific solution, but don't think its a fuse problem, just something quirky with the electronics of that model. From my experience it happens when outside temp is cold. Display comes good after a period of time, can be hours, days or weeks !!

One suggestion, after it comes good (hopefully), each time you go to start the car you first put the key into the slot (of course) but then you MUST WAIT until the display lights up before you push the start button. You could also try that before it has come good.

Btw I sold my E70, now have an F15 30D M sport, absolutely love it.

Ours is a different case then.

In Florida and ambient temp was in the 80's. This particular X5 has the proximity option so key was not in the slot when I pushed start. Screen just never lit up.

2009 X5 fuse panel layout

Ok, so I compare the diagram to my actual panel and see multiple fuses calling for a fuse but nothing is there. Sure it depends on what options are on it but would it hurt to fill those slots with the proper sized fuse regardless if it's a system on the vehicle or not? Plus I assume all the un-diagrammed slots with fuses in them are just spares.

UPDATE - Blank screen resurrected itself after being off for 3 days. Not sure what the hell it was, hopped in Tuesday morning and it came back to life!

I had tried several other remedies and had no positive results, i.e. pull & replace fuses, attempt to reset display, etc. I did, however, read today that I may not have been resetting the display correctly. Initially, I tried pushing the CD eject and volume buttons simultaneously for 25 seconds to no avail. Another poster mentioned that you have to hold down the CD eject, volume AND the NAV DVD eject button as well.

We'll see what the future holds!
