I would carefully check the wiring; you may find the cause of the blown fuse. And

Can you tell me what the fuse number is on an e60 for the cigarette lighter?
My car does not have the map.
I think it is in the rear but can't find it.

Hello and welcome to the forum,the fuse you are looking for is located in the boot,and it is fuse nr87 20 amp, by playing about and fiddeling i found that the 12volt socketts only work when the engine is running,another eccellent idea from bmw to save on your battery power,let us know hown you get on.
Karl.

Thank you, yes, BMW lighter doesn't work when my car is not on, the genius of BMW, thank you for that number of fuse, that is what I needed.
After the fact I did find the fuse diagram and map. Of ALL places on my e60 it was in plane sight in the trunk toolbox above the first aid kit. Just right there and with extra fuses and a fuse puller. In the last place I look! If anyone else needs a copy I can scan and post or email. Amazing I could not find this online anywhere!
