BMW E90 Fuse box

Years of production: 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013

E90 - biggest one in BMW 3 series family

Fifth generation of series 3 model has been produced from 2005 to 2011. This compact car has a lot of fans all over the world. And that's not a big surprise. First feeling - very well made. Design is stylish and eye-catching. People say this car is perfect for long distance driving. Powerful and economic - especially for 2.0 diesel engine version. Driving BMW E90 can be entertaining and gives you so much fun - because it handles so well. However some people may find it’s a little bit “heavy” for in twn and that brings us on some BMW other downsizes what is the manual gearboxes which may feel a little bit sloppy and disconnected - so it’s worth considering to spend extra money and getting automatic gearbox.

There are some other potential problems in the rear of E90. It's a decent amount of space back there, however headroom may be limited. It means that BMW 3-series may be not a good idea to carry adults on the back, similar to Audi A4.

All the negatives are only minor issues. BMW 3-series is great compact executive class, may be very cheap to run and for sure is a great choice!

Fuse symbol meanings

BMW E90 Fuse box fuse symbol meanings

Never attempt to repair a blown fuse and do not replace a defective fuse with a substitute of another color or amperage rating, otherwise this could lead to a circuit overload, ultimately resulting in a fire in the vehicle

Open the cover in the glove compartment and remove it. Spare fuses and a pair of plastic forceps are set in holders on the distributor box. See the rear of the cover for information on fuse assignment.
