You are right; they only go to F42 in the passenger compartment.

I think I got my problem solved by messing around with the harnesses on the BCM.
Oh! OK, these fuses are internal to the FRM logic board.
Anyway, I'm glad you could fix your problem!

I figured that might be where they were; Thanks for clarifying.

There are four fuses that supply the FRM (see below). There are none in the FRM itself. In the MINI R56, individual devices (brake lights, headlamps, etc.) are not fused individually. Instead the FRM itself provides circuit protection (it automatically detects short-circuits and then disables individual outputs).

I'd check each of these four fuses (if possible, check that there is +12 V at the appropriate terminals on the FRM itself). If they are all good, then it is likely that your FRM is dead (sorry...). If it is powered up, and otherwise looks fine, but won't communicate with INPA or TOOL32 at all then there is not much you can do but replace it.

Ok I'm new to the whole BMW nightmare. I'm having the same problems, but I also have an airbag fault. I'm pretty shore problems are either this controller or the switch assembly in the steering column. I have no scanner that will read BMW, and very limited access to technical information. Can someone please offer a little advice.

If you don't have any possibility to check your FRM (scanner, NCS Expert, ISTA, etc) you could try:

- disconnect and reconnect your battery
- disconnect and reconnect your FRM
- Replace your FRM

It looks like there is an extended warranty on this module by BMW but nothing from Mini?
