Question about 2005 BMW 1 Series
When you find the fuse if it has blown also check the resistor to control the fan speed. I cant remember if the 1 series has a load resistor multi tap but it may have failed if you use 1 or 2 speed on the fan a lot, max will bypass the load resistor where as 1 will use maximum load and the thermal fuse might have blown. But replace it as caution. In the earlier models it had a block which was nicknamed the hedgehog, a load resistor buried under passenger foot-well up toward the centre, loads of spiky aluminum pegs which cold air blew over to cool it, always packing up in the earlier models £25 from scrap dealer cheap fix compared to the £££££££ BMW dealers rip off. Heater or air con would either not work or blow erratically. Hope this helps
