    Hi,

    Looking for some help and knowledge! I have a 2004 530D E61. The 5A fuse that supports the central locking and radio keeps blowing. I can change the fuse, close the rear and attempt to use the blipper to activate the central locking and this blows the fuse. Not always, just most of the time. I've noticed that the problem gets worse when its been raining - water ingress in the tailgate? This is not stopping me driving the car (although the alarm goes off every time I open the door), but it is very annoying.

    Anyone have any ideas? Failing that, anyone know a good auto electrician in the North East (Kingston) area?

    Many thanks

    Check the radio remote receiver unit under the rear tailgate spoiler, the little box it sits in may need sealing with butyl cord sealant.
    As well as renewing the receiver if it is full of water.

    Many thanks for this. I seem to recall that getting this box out can be a real problem; is it easy or not? I cannot find a Haynes manual or similar anywhere that would help me.

    Not too bad, be careful removing the trims and once the spoiler is undone, lift it gently a second person is needed really to hold it up while you disconnect the wiring plug and washer hose.
