Unhappy Sunroof and interior lights not working

My sunroof, interior lights and SOS button aren't working. I assume that it's a blown fuse?? I tried to look in the owners manual and found the rear fuse panel. In that panel there is a schematic for the fuses with #s etc. Based on the schematic, I think the fuse I need to locate is in the front fuse panel. I saw a previous post that references the front fuse panel, but doesn't appear that it is easily accessible.

I know that it should go back to the dealer, but wanted to just replace the fuse in the meantime before I get it back there. Has anyone had this issue or been able to access the front fuse panel?

Yes, it's an 07. I did notice what you mentioned in your new thread. However, mine doesn't work at all! Neither do the reading lights, dome light, SOS button, etc. I assume it's the fuse the controls all the interior funcitonality that is on the roof. Calling the dealer tomorrow to get this straightened out.

I'm gong to take a stab in the dark and say it might very well be the battery. My X5 was doing very odd things similar to this before the battery completely died.

I was just going to post this...

If it's an original battery, I would consider changing it...

In reference to the battery, it is a good point, but if you have a battery tender or charger charge it up completly and see if any of your issues are corrected before you just replace things chasing a problem, I'd even go a step further and charge it up and have it load tested, you can get that done for free.

Also being batteries can be a cause of a lot of different problems, I'd also double check the ground connections are good and tight on clean surfaces as well. Really there is no need to throw money at something that may not be the problem. Just saying.
