2009 BMW 128i Recalls
The vehicle battery is connected to the fuse box via a heavy duty cable. It has been determined that the cable connection at the fuse box can degrade over time, resulting in increased electrical resistance. This increased resistance can cause the connection point to overheat and break, resulting in a loss of electrical power and causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method to correct this concern.
The seat belt pretensioner explosion that occurs during a collision may ignite the sound insulation around the buckles. Dealers will modify the sound insulation on all vehicles, and relplace the seat belt on some models. This recall began on August 23, 2010.
