BMW E60 E61 Fuse and Relay

The next modification of the BMW 5 series after the E39 was the E60. The car was produced in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in two body styles: sedan (E60) and station wagon (E61). We will consider the diagrams of relay boxes and fuses for the BMW E60 with a description of the purpose of the elements. Note the cigarette lighter e60

Spare fuses and plastic tweezers should be included with the driver’s tool kit. The fuse list for your vehicle is located in the luggage compartment behind the right-hand side cover.
