Recall Alert: BMW 2012-2015

RECALL Subject : Side Marker Lamps Inoperative/FMVSS 108

Report Receipt Date: AUG 17, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V520000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,544


Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC

SUMMARY:
BMW North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 320i, 320xi, 328i, 328xi, 335i, 335xi, and ActiveHybrid3 vehicles manufactured October 20, 2011, to June 22, 2015, 2014-2015 328xi Sports Wagon vehicles manufactured March 21, 2013, to March 17, 2015, 2014-2015 328d, 328xd vehicles manufactured June 28, 2013, to April 21, 2015, and 2014-2015 328xd Sports Wagon vehicles manufactured July 5, 2013, to April 21, 2015. The affected vehicles may have been programmed with new software that inadvertently makes the front side marker lights inoperative in conjunction with the parking lights or the headlights. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the side marker lights do not illuminate, the vehicle may be less visible at night, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will upload revised software to correct the issue, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 9, 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417 or by email at [email protected].
