Trunk Fuses

Hello,

Recently I've been adding various accesories to my M6 and would like to tap off of other fuses in the trunk.
I have my little plastic card with symbols on it that indicate what each fuse is for but I don't understand what some of the symbols mean.

So far I have run a backup cam and a front camera off of Fuse #71. It does not appear to be intrusive to other functions of the car and the symbol sort of looks like it's for a rear motorized sunshade that goes on the inside of the rear windshield. Can anyone confirm?

Also - this Fuse/Circuit appears to have power only when the car is turned on.. supplies 12V (and doesn't drain the battery when the car is turned off). I need to locate another circuit/fuse identical to #71.

The fuses below are what I'm curious about - what are these used for? Can anyone offer ideas? or do they know for sure?

Trunk Fuses:
52
51
62,65
66
71 (Appears to be for motorized rear winshield sunshade)
87,88
52,66
60

I suppose I could call my BMW stealership and inquire with them - they should be able to answer I imagine.
Any input would be greatly appreciated

You might want to obtain a BMW ETM (electrical troubleshooting manual). Copies are available on eBay.
The wiring diagrams can be very helpful.

The E63/64 probably has the same wiring harnass (fuse blocks, etc.) as the E60 5 series cars (which do have a sun shade option). At least that's my guess

You are right, this was never a 6 series car option.

Majestic, this should get you what you're looking for. Use Firefox or Chrome browser (seems to work best) and search for fuse box or look under electrical in the tree. It will give you a wiring diagram of the entire fuse panel in the trunk. (there are also fuse panels behind the glove box and in the engine compartment, passenger side)

Good luck

Note: you're looking for a #15 wire, which is an 'Ign on' wire 12v when Ign is on

Fuse layout with descriptions

My usual disclaimer:

1) Use this information at your own risk.

2) I do not guarantee the accuracy of this information.
The info I attached to the fuses is based on my interpretation on what was listed on the E63 Wiring Diagram Manual.

3) There are cases where numerous systems are attached to one fuse so I did my best to combine them all given the limited space available on the fuse nomenclature box.

4) Do not blame me or hold me accountable for any incorrect information or for any possible damage to your electrical system.
Do your own homework too and double check to ensure the information I have is correct.

5) Took me over 3 hours to research this info and put them all together. Time I could have spent with my wife and girlfriend instead.
A simple thank you will suffice if you are able to use this information for your project or to resolve a fuse issue.

Now that we got that out of the way, please see attached.
