2011 BMW 550i RecallsAir Bags And Restraint Systems Do Not Operate Properly In An Accident
The sensor cluster unit (SCU), if previously replaced during a service visit, may not be able to accurately determine if activation of safety restraint components is necessary in an accident. This could prevent deployment of air bags and other restraint system devices in an accident. Dealers will replace the SCU free of charge to resolve the concern.
The in-tank fuel pump may have wire contacts that are not properly crimped, resulting in the wiring connector melting, fuel leakage and vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module free of charge to resolve the concern.
Vehicles equipped with an 8 or 12 cylinder turbocharged engine may overheat the circuit board for the auxiliary water pump. This could lead to smoldering of the pump or an engine compartment or vehicle fire. Dealers will replace the auxiliary water pump to correct this concern.
