BMW 650i Recalls
The air bags mounted in the sides of the front seats may not deploy when needed in an accident due to a failure of the igniters within the air bag assemblies. This would increase risk of occupant injury in a crash.
The fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank may have wire contacts not sufficiently crimped. This could result in a fuel leak and vehicle stalling condition. This could increase risk of a fire hazard and crash.
Vehicles equipped with an 8 or 12 cylinder engine are being recalled because the circuit board for the electric water pump can overheat. This could lead to a fire.
The bolt securing the insulated battery cable connector at the trunk floor panel can loosen, causing increased electrical resistance and overheating of the cable connection.
The brake system vacuum pump can leak oil, which can contaminate the brake booster. This can result in extra braking effort.
The engine may stall in weather below freezing combined with low humidity. If the engine stalls, the driver may not be able to maintain speed or accelerate, and the power steering could fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
On 225 vehicles, the front passenger seat sensor may not detect a small adult sitting in the front passenger seat. If this happens and the front passenger air bag is deactivated, the risk of injury in a crash may be increased.
The lower rubber mount for the rear shock absorber may come loose from the shock. If this happens, the driver will experience impaired handling and control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
On 40 vehicles, a nut was not tightened to specification and could loosen over time. If the nuts loosen, vehicle handling and control could be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.
On certain vehicles a bad transmission component may allow vehicle to move while in park. This may lead to vehicle roll away causing an accident.
