Photo of rear fuse box

I have 2007 X5 4.8i. Packages include premium, sport, navigation, cold weather. By mistake, I installed a few fuses in wrong positions while I was looking for a burnt fuse because my control panel lights were out. I fixed that problem but in that process some fuse went in wrong sockets. Everything is working fine but I want to make sure that right fuses are in the right socket. I have the original fuse box diagram but that is not very helpful. Can some one post a photo of the fuse box that sits in right rear side of the suv? That way I will be able to make sure that all sockets have proper fuses in them.
Thanks

Mein Auto: 2007 X5 4.8i
Hello everyone,
I am encountering the same problem like asjad11, and am unable to figure out where I could find an original picture of the rear fuse panel. By mistake, I installed a few fuses in wrong positions while I was looking for a burnt fuse for the front halos.
If anybody would happen to have an E70 with parking sensors, premium sound, that would be most helpful. Since my X5 is now coming up with several dtc's and I am not willing to call the dealership to spend several hundred dollars just because of a few fuses......

Thanks in advance.

Not sure what's difficult about the e70 fuse diagrams (except for understanding what the symbols represent).

But like previous BMW generations before the e70...BMW gives a diagram (illustration) of the various fuse boxes (usually 1 in front and 1 in the rear). The illustration shows each location & fuse number for that location...along with the amperage for that fuse. If there's a "-" for a fuse location in the diagram...it means that no fuse is used in that location within the fuse box. Or...if you don't have a particular option (indicated by the "symbol" in the "key")...then that fuse location in the fuse box will be empty.

It's easy to tell which fuse goes where when you're looking at the correct illustration for the fuse box you're looking at...by the fuse color and amperage. The illustration gives the amperage of the fuse...and all of the fuses of the same amperage are the same color. So if you're not color blind and can read 1-2 digit numerical numbers you should be able to figure out which fuse goes into which fuse location...using the diagram/illustration as a guide.

In the example below...this is a 2011 e70 X5 50i. The location of fuses 1- 44 are given in the top illustration (which are for the FRONT fuses)...and the location of fuses 91-150 are in the 2nd illustration. The amperage of each of those fuses is in the small "box" below the fuse nbr. To find or check the fuses...look at the appropriate fuse location diagram...then correlate it with either the front or rear fuse box illustration (which shows where each fuse number goes).

Thanks

Okay I know how to read them and I just talked to a master bmw service guy I know he agrees its a generic diagram I have.... they are used for most x5's.THe OBD is not powered so I am looking into why. Long story as a emissions test was done then lights started coming on so I was told the by tec at another place he bypassed the bus data port to do the test. He could of blown something but now the lights are off for a few days,,,,,great but PORT NOT WORKING that is why I wondered if the fuse diagram was correct. I don't know why he did that test without letting me know as this could cause damage and they don't want to take responsibility for it, What else is new .... Thank you

Do you also have a "key" illustration that has a symbol that correlates to an area along with all the fuse nbrs that are associated with that area? This symbol chart (key) is a newer addition...the old BMWs had an alphabetical list of what each fuse was for...so we would just go to the "O" section and look for OBD to find the fuse number. With your symbol chart/key...if it's not obvious...you may have to go to your owners manual (or perhaps it's listed in iDrive) to see what symbol represents OBD.

EDIT: ...okay, went back out on the "net" and found the symbol "key/chart" for that same 2011 X5 50i...and in the case of the X5 50i...the key/chart indicates that fuse 134 powers the OBD port...and it's a 5 amp fuse in the rear fuse box. Correlate this to your model/chart/fuse index location...and see which fuse(s) power your OBD port...then figure out if it's in the front or rear fuse box...then use the fuse illustration/index to find its location. Looks like fuse #134 powers 4 other things or group of things. I don't have an e70...so I don't know all of the symbols...but at least 2 of them look like they do something with the steering wheel...at least that's what the symbol looks like to me ...and only because you mentioned something about your headlights...there is a symbol that kind of looks like a headlight (it has 2 round circles encircled)...that is also powered by fuse #134.

Good luck:

Thank you

Okay mine says 130 OBD with the positon and amp, so I checked those fuses and other. All look good in back panel. I hope it would be a fuse but it looks to be something more difficult to troubleshoot. I will try the 134 you have on diagram .Thank you appreciate your time

Hi

Okay tested 134 OBD fuse okay so I am at loss and if my diagram is correct were 134 is, this may be a ground issue to bus data port or other .Not what I had hoped but it drives well no light now but keeping fingers crossed that it stays that way. i could take it to find out what the issue is and put this to rest and give me peace. Thank you for your help
