BMW 528i xDrive QuestionsMessage, "Increased Battery Discharge" comes on every time I stop. Then charge (1 answer)
Then it says to charge Battery. I know that the battery is fine. What do I need to do to reset erroneous message?
I know I live in New England and the winter blend of gas does go down on Mpg, but 3 miles per gallon? It seems I have to really step on it to get it to go. I have no error codes or lights... Thanks....
The dealer tells me this in normal and when I bring in for service they told me they replaced a valve. It is tough to get the windshield to defrost on drivers side. I don't think this is normal. Can anyone give me any suggestions?
BMW 528i xDrive RecallsSeat Mounted Air Bags Do Not Deploy When Needed In An Accident
The igniters in the front seat side air bag assemblies may not function in a crash. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the front seat side air bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
The inboard left rear seat child seat anchor may be bent downwards, preventing the child seat from being securely latched. Dealers will inspect and repair as necessary the inboard lower anchor on the left rear seat free of charge to resolve the concern.
These vehicles use a vacuum pump to supply power assist to the braking system. Due to insufficient lubrication this vacuum pump may fail. Failure of the brake vacuum pump would result in a reduction in braking power that could increase the risk of a crash. In order to correct this concern, dealers will install a locking ring in the camshaft to retain the camshaft seal disk in the proper location. This will ensure proper oiling of the vacuum pump. Note: This recall is an expansion of an earlier recall.
