All,

I am on a mission to understand the fuse symbols for my BMW. I have a good start, but I've found very little information in general. Anyone know further insights??

1. Dynamic Stability Control
2. Active Steering
3. Trailer Wiring Module
4. Service Indicator
5. Heads Up Display
6. Rearview Mirror
7. Active Suspension
8. Transmission Control & AWD
9. Auto Stop/Start
10. Headlights? Fog light?
11. Lights? (What lights?)
12. Media? (What Media?)
13. Speakers Amplifier?
14. Parking Assistance & Home Link
15. Auxiliary Heater temperature?
16. Alarm / Horn
17. Parking Break (Electronic?)
18. Door Locks
19. Power Windows
20. Heated Seats

23. OBD 2 Port

Service indicators for seatbelt warning on the first the service warning on the second symbol and check engine light for the last one I don’t remember if they are just for the warning light or the system. To check pull the fuse for the check engine and if the car doesn’t crank than the fuse is for the dme and if it cranks it’s just for the mail function indicator. Every thing else you have looks right. Sorry I don’t have numbers for my explanation I didn’t have a pen and pad handy and I’m not able to look at your post as I write this. Sorry for not giving you the numbers but my list is in order with yours. Good luck.

I actually needed this. Thanks. I saw it some time back and had to search for it again.

I can add this .pdf I found in the quest to decipher the symbols.

View attachment 833327

I don't know if they all are correct, but it is hard to find info on what exactly each symbol means.
Wow this is good stuff! :thumbup:

Maybe TIS and/or Bentley manual also have further details on this?

Thank you for the fuse symbol list! It is much appreciated.

I have a couple questions hoping someone can help!
Noting car and model just because I have found more info on coupe than convertible.
BMW 428i Convertible (F33)

Questions:
1) Load Lift: Any know what fuse is for the comfort load lift? The button on the trunk door when you have top down and want to put something in trunk. Recently my convertible doesn't work and while I was troubleshooting I noticed the load lift doesn't work either. There is a green light but nothing happens when I push the buttons. Wondering if this is same set of fuses or if there is something else I should check? I have checked 141, 143, 28, 62, 107, 130, 150
2) Convertible top not working: When I try to put convertible top down, I get the trunk partition error. It doesn't even put try to put the windows down first. I have had the car for several years and I am aware needing to move the trunk partition before putting top down. I have turned off car, rolled windows down, moved trunk partition up and down but it still reports it is not in correct spot to put top down. I have checked fuse: 141, 143, 28, 62, 107, 130, 150 Is there something else I should be checking? Any advise would be helpful!

Thank you in advance! This is my first post so if I have missed sharing pertinent info or if this is not the correct place to post questions to post just let me know!
