Fuse Misplaced- Chassis Stabilization Malfunction

First post, and I'm a bonehead!

In attempting to put LEDs in the interior of my 2011 3.5D X5, I blew out the fuse for the glove box. So, I knew there was a fuse box in the rear passenger cargo area. So, I started pulling fuses to look and see which one was blown. Amazingly, none were blown. I later discovered there is a 2nd box in the footwell for the passenger, which I will be addressing shortly.

However, in inspecting the rear fuse box, I must have accidentally put some of the fuses in the wrong location. My comfort key stopped working and so did the power tailgate. I got those two fixed, but the worst error that I can't figure out is the 'chassis stabilization malfunction'. No matter which fuse I replace, it still persists. Since there are only a handful of fuses and multiple open slots, I really have no idea which fuse I misplaced.

Does anyone have a diagram of the box that shows what goes where? Or does anyone know what number fuse I need to reinsert for 'chassis stabilization Malfunction" in the rear?

Lastly, from an electrical point of view, if the circuit is not there, since the option wasn't ordered, would it be bad to just insert fuses of the correct specification into the box in the right locations until it fixes the issue?

The merits of my approach can be bashed for sure, but Please, some expert help is needed! Thanks a bunch!

Usually after power reset you need to turn the steering wheel lock to lock 1-2 times and the stability control light goes away.The easiest way to find out wher eyou have to put a fuse is to look at the fuse socket.If you see pins only on 1 side you dont need a fuse there,but it wont do anything wrong if you install one.
