BMW Recalls Over 150,000 Vehicles For Stalling Issue — Is Your Car On The List?

Written By:

German carmaker BMW is recalling 154,472 vehicles in North America to replace a faulty fuel pump module that may cause the affected vehicles to stall.

According to the filing made by BMW with US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the German carmaker claims that the wiring to fuel pumps inside the gas tank may not have been properly crimped.

This uncrimped wiring can cause the wires to come loose and melt a connector, causing a fuel leak. That can stop the fuel pump from working and stall the affected engines.

The recall covers certain 5-Series and 5 Series Gran Turismo sedans, 6 Series coupes and convertibles along with X5 and X6 SUVs from the 2007 to 2012 model years.

According to BMW, no crashes, injuries or deaths have been reported related to the stalling issues.

Around 136,000 of the affected vehicles are in the United States while the rest were sold in Canada.

The German luxury carmaker has been recalling its vehicles with the same issue in China, Japan and South Korea since 2014, the recall filing stated.

BMW will notify affected vehicle owners to get their vehicles to the nearest dealerships where the dealers will replace the faulty fuel pump module.

The recall is expected to start on December 5, 2016.
