If by 1 series you mean a 1XX model, the front cigar lighter fuse is 20A FUSE 8 in the junction box. That fuse also connects power to the rear center console charging socket and the luggage compartment socket outlet.

Drive the Car for 25 Minutes at speeds of at least 70 mph also make sure your fuel tank is filled above the halfway mark. This will automatically activate The Regeneration through the DME.

The timing belt is crucial. And a broken belt can cause bent valves and serious engine damage. Since you state that the belt tensioner was replaced, was the timing belt replaced as well? I assume you have a warranty, and I highly recommend you use it. A new noise coming from where a major repair was just completed is never a good sign.

Most likely you shorted it out, and blew the fuse.


Check the fuse.
I'll bet it's blown.
