There is no fuse on the X5.

First, check that the transformer is plugged in.

Next, check that the wiring harness is connected to the console.

Also check the wiring harnesses in the upright tube and at the base frame. Verify that the harnesses are properly connected. If all connections are correct, then you will need to test the transformer and replace if faulty.

If this does not solve the problem then the console will need to be replaced.
