First time it happens, it blows a fuse on the 30AMP fuse engine fusebox.
It's suppose to pop the fuse so it doesn't catch on fire.
So I need to replace a fuse as well?

I'm trying to replace the O2 sensor heating element fuse on my e92 '07 328xi. Anyone know where this is? I don't think this is behind the glovebox?

Better invest in a Firestriker fire extinguisher!!

If it is the heater elements in these vent hoses that short out, then yes, we are talking a nasty fire since these vent hoses are nice and oily generally with crankcase oil! Oil fires are bad!
