BMW Has Recalled the 2001 5 Series

Jan 1, 2004 | The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.

Bayerische Motoren Werke

Models: BMW 5 Series Year: 2001

Number Potentially Involved: 23,000

Dates of Manufacture: January – August 2001

Defect: On certain passenger cars, a microprocessor in the air bag control module, which activates the front air bags, the side air bags, the front seat safety belt pretensioners, and the Battery Safety Terminal, may have a malfunction that could lead to an unintended activation of one or more of these components. Unexpected deployment of the air bag(s) could cause serious injury if an occupant is too close to the deploying air bag(s). In addition, the Battery Safety Terminal may also be activated. If that happens, the starter cable would become disconnected from the battery, and the engine could not be restarted.
