Wow,oohhh: thats crazy same thing happened to me, let me know what fuse number it is, so I can replace it too. My radar detector doesn't work either.Is this one in the glove box? My car came with an M5 owner's manual instead of an M6. Do I have to remove the screws on the pull down glove box door to get to the fuses? I checked the trunk fuses and there wasn't one for the cigarette lighter. I need to hook up my radar but I can't get any power to it :sad2:
The better solution would probably be to tap the power for the mirror or the dome lights overhead. That is how mine are wired in all cases. I guess unless you are mounting the radar detector to the dash?
There is a scan of the fuse information card (located in the trunk) in this post:does anyone have a fuse list or know what amp it is? its not worth it to me to go through the rest of them just to have a radar to speed, there are so many
Thanks clyde, I actually looked it but couldn't make sense of which symbol it was. I was looking for a lit cigarette hahaThere is a scan of the fuse information card (located in the trunk) in this post:
The the cryptic symbols makes the card difficult to use ouich
BMW needs to provide a secret decoder ring :1:
Check the 20 amp fuse #87, located in the trunk :lightbulb:
On the 6 series it is either fuse position 61 or 87 in the trunk. Depends on model year. The penny in the lighter receptacle was my downfall also!
My car came without the lighter so it was just wide open. Now it has a flush charger USB charger in it so that the hole is always filled and my wife can plug her Iphone USB charge cable in and out while leaving the adapter in.
