Finally attacking this fuse but I can't seem to locate which fuse it is. I Thought for sure it was 8,13,16,24,66,101,141. But it's not anyone of those.

I have my glove box and rear taking apart. Can anyone help?

Thank you gents!

Help us help you better...you give no model/model year info. Fuse or electrical layout can be different based on which model you have.

Are you familiar with the online BMW TIS website? If not, here's a link, perhaps you can find the info specific to your model/model year (you can input the last 7 digits of your VIN and the site will be speific to your BMW)...and look up the wiring diagram for the fog lights to see what fuse (F##) that controls them (fuses are identified by an F with its number proceeding the F):


BTW, what you're most likely to find is that the fog lights are under the control of a module (I believe the FRM (footwell module) on the X3). BMW went to control of exterior lights being under a control module back around the mid 1990s with the introduction of the LM (light module) on the 1995 e38 7 series. It continued on up to the next interations...the LCM - LCMIII - LCM IV to the end of the old gen BMWs. Then with the introduction of the new communication bus with the e90/e65/e60/e70/etc generation of BMWs...the control of exterior lighting was moved to the control of the JBE/FRM/etc modules. Again, if you go to the link above, enter the last 7 digits of your VIN, then type fog lights into the search box...you should see a link to a wiring diagram for the fog lights. When you see the diagram, you'll probably see that they are under the control of the footwell module...then the footwell module will have a fuse that controls it.

Good luck.

Hi,

Funny you replied, after doing some search you sent this same link to another forum member :D:thumbup:.

I did find, well I think I found the correct fuse but it's good. (not blown).

It would appear to be Fuse 13 according to this diagram.
If you have power on both sides of that fuse, I would check for an output voltage at the correct pins on the Footwell Module (FRM) *I am assuming that you still have tail lights*:
