Hi Steve I want to know which components are supplied via the 30A fuse in the engine relay/fuse box that controls the TCM. I am experiencing a blown fuse and this cuts out the TCM. A drawing would be helpful as well. I need to find that short.
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 8 months ago

what is the fuse # that is blowing exactly?

It is the second to last one counting from the left.
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 8 months ago

can you please provide the fuse number so there is no chance of error when I look up the wiring diagram?
