BMW is recalling 26,000 units of its flagship 7 Series luxury sedan due to a potential air bag deployment issue.
The issue affects 26,000 units of the new 7 Series produced between July 1, 2015 and December 11, 2015. Out of the total 26,000 cars recalled, 6,110 are in the US while 4,700 cars are in China and another 2,600 cars are in Germany.
The issue is caused by the airbag control module randomly resetting because of an electrical short circuit which could result in the airbags not deploying in case of an accident.
The recall will begin in the US on May 16 and BMW will replace the air bag control module which were supplied by German auto parts manufacturer Continental.
