The #whatever part is the pin in the blue connector. They are numbered. If you look at the end of the plug you will see 1 and 12 on the connector. Just count across from 1.

So the second hole is Pin #2 which is ground.

The 6th hole is pin #6 which is a white wire and is the ibus wire.

I went to the fuse box on fuse #7 for my power source.
I am unable to see clearly which wire is going to which number on the blue connector because there is a black plastic piece inside the blue connector blocking the view and i am unable to remove it.

The blue connector should look like this.

Notice the 1 and the 12 on the connector.

I updated the ibus page to show the plug and pin numbering like I just posted for others later.

If you don't have a white and blue connector then your wiring up a mid equipped X5 and I don't have pictures of that since mine was a nav equipped X5.

Mine is the nav one, but you see that black plastic piece inside the blue connector? I can't get that out to see which wire goes to which number pin.

Also, how come you did not use the red/green wire for your 12v?

bcredliner, the black plug going into your BM54 unit which has the 4 wires going into it, what are those 4 wires for?

My Eonon's sound works without having that block connected to the BM54, but the instructions on their website shows to connect it for some reason.

I went to the fuse box because bmw's are notorious for not turning things off right at times and running the battery down. I wanted a 100% switch spot to keep from ever having problems with the sleep mode stuff. The only switched wire in the connector works with the sleep relay and I don't want anything to do with the sleep relay

So I went to fuse #7 in the glove box. Some people have used pin#11 for a switched 12volt source aka what goes to the red wire on the ibus adapter. Its your choice on that. I just chose the #7 fuse in the fuse box to be safe.

What does #7 fuse on the glove box operate?
