  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Cigarette lighter fuse in my E91 blew so I got that changed but in doing so changed a few others which turned my central locking off on one of the doors. I fixed that one so now that works fine. But now my engine light has come on? Is this fuse related? If so which fuse would it be related to?
