BMW Recall to Address Wiring for Air Bags

July 15, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- BMW of North America is recalling MY 2008 1-Series and 3-Series passenger cars because the wrong crimp connectors may have been used on the side air bag and belt tensioner wiring.

As a result, there may not be enough contact between the crimp connectors and the corresponding plug. This could lead to an increase in the electrical resistance of that connection. This condition raises the risk of side air bag or safety belt tensioner malfunction. 

BMW is expected to submit a remedy and notification schedule to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration soon. 

Vehicle owners may contact BMW at (800) 831-1117.
