Mein Auto: 99 M-coupe
Fuse location please

My '99 M-coupe came without a manual.

Anyhoo, the 2 small map reading lamps don't work--no power. Yet the larger center overhead light has power. Which fuse powers the 2 smaller map reading spotlights??

Also, which fuse powers the antenna amplifier? My AM radio reception is a bit poor. Where is the amplifier located? Previous owner messed up the antenna wire, and the patch is likely the culprit. But before I start pulling out wires, where is the antenna amp located?

Almost time to put the 'coupe in the barn. Some snow falling and it's time for me to move to a 4x4 vehicle until spring.

Thanks for your help

Did you check the legend on the inside of the fuse compartment lid?

Are you sure it's not the bulbs themselves?

Fues 33 (10A). Any chance you have the reading lamp switches off?
