No where are the fuses?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 6 days ago.

Dear customer, What can you do to get out of the way and eliminate the alarm noise, the first and most common that customers grab and try to remove fuse from the alarm but I do not recommend that they do this as there is a possibility that the computer feels that it is trying to be stolen and activate the anti-theft immobilizer module. In any case, if you want to do it, you simply go to the fuse box under the dashboard, remove the cover of this box and you will access the legend where you will be table to see the exact position of the alarm fuse.

Now what I recommend is to disconnect directly or cut the horn cable, It is the best that you can make but I do not know the exact location of the BMW X5 2016, because in some models they are under the bumper and its access is a bit complicated.

This solutions are the best that I can recommend you dear customer.

Do you understand me dear customer?
