BMW fuse symbols explained
There's no official BMW guide and explanation for fuse symbols. Therefore I created a list of all BMW symbols with meaning. I try to cover every single symbol in the guide. If you see that something is missing, please feel free to add your own symbol and explain the purpose of this symbol in the comment section. Also, if you see some errors or mistakes in icons, please let me know. I will try to keep this guide updated.

Hello, I am doing some research for my father and am having issues coming up with an answer. He has a 2020 BMW M8 Comp. & the dash lights do not work. Is this a fuse issue? He purchased car from auction as a salvaged vehicle and has just begun the rebuild & has been stumped right off the bat with this issue. Any and all advice would be GREATLY appreciated and helpful. Just as a heads up, he has accessed all of the fuse compartments, he’s just unsure of which fuse is needed to control dash lights? Or if there is some other issue at hand that doesn’t concern the fuses. Thanks all again!

The arrow symbol with your question mark is actually the symbol for sun/moon roof.
The one with the ?/arrows is for the sunroof
And the one with the car in the air means exactly that, there are sensors for when the car is being serviced on a hoist or being towed. Also, the older BMWs actually had a button for this

Bmw use standard ATO and mini fuses.How do you read fuse markings? ›
Small fuses generally identify the element speed using markings such as F, M, T etc, whilst larger fuses identify the element speed using markings such as gL, gG, aM etc. Some fuses use terms such as slow acting, fast acting, motor rated etc.What does the fuse symbol mean? ›
This symbol represents a fused switch. A fuse switch performs the action of switching by physically removing the fuse because the fuse is the part of the switch.How do you find the correct fuse? ›
The simple calculation is watts divided by volts equals amps. After you have calculated this, it is a simple case of adding around 10% to the value and choosing the nearest fuse to match. This is a more precise method then just guessing should you require a 3, 5, or even 13 amp fuse.What is the difference in car fuses? ›
Fuses come in various types and sizes, depending on the make and model of your car. Manufacturers design different types of fuses based on the electrical system requirements for each specific make and model. For example, some vehicles require high-amp fuses while others may need low-amp fuses.What are old car fuses called? ›
Bosch type fuses (also known as continental, torpedo, European, or GBC type fuses) are used in old (often European) automobiles. The physical dimension of this type of fuse is 6×25 mm with conical ends. Bosch type fuses usually use the same color-coding for the rated current.Where are the brake fuses? ›
Like all fuses, the brake light system fuse can be found in the power distribution center, which is under the dashboard or tucked away underneath the hood.Are BMW fuses different? ›
Fuses are not all the same. I've encountered many cheap ATO-style fuses that have thinner contact blades than the original BMW fuses. They are known to cause fuse block overheating in older BMWs (e30, e34 and e36), and may cause the same problem on the e39.What do the numbers on a fuse mean? ›
The voltage rating, as marked on a fuse, indicates the maximum voltage of the circuit for which the fuse is designed to operate safely in the event of an overcurrent. Therefore, the fuse's voltage rating must equal or exceed the available circuit voltage where the fuse will be installed.What should a bad fuse read? ›
If the reading is between 0 and 5 Ω (Ohms), the fuse is good. A higher reading indicates a bad or degraded fuse. A reading of OL (Over Limit) definitely means a blown fuse.
