The maintenance free 90 AH battery in the X5 is mounted in the rear below the spare tire and EHC compressor unit. The battery box is formed of molded plastic and the positioning of the battery aids in weight distribution. As with all BMW vehicles, the battery is equipped with the BST on the pos- itive battery cable.
Power distribution for the vehicle and systems is through two fuse carriers mounted in the right storage com- partment in the rear and above the glove box in the front.
The battery jump/charge point is located in the engine compartment on the left side of the fire wall.
