View what was inspected
On model year 2006 3 Series equipped with sport seats, model year 2004 through 2006 5 Series equipped with standard or sport seats, and model year 2004 through 2006 X3 Sports Activity Vehicles, depending on the manner and frequency of the front passenger's entry and exit, small cracks may have developed in the seat occupant detection mat. If this occurs, the front passenger air bags, with the exception of the head protection system, will be deactivated and the air bag warning lamp as well as the passenger air bag on-off lamp will be illuminated.
In this situation, the front passenger air bags will not deploy even if a sufficiently severe accident occurs. Occupant protection provided by the system would not be possible.
Your BMW center will rework the front passenger seat sensor mat so that external force application to the seat does not cause a crack to the mat. BMW will also extend the warranty on these vehicles to 10 years from first registration without any mileage limit.
On certain model year 2004 through 2010 5 Series, model year 2004 through 2010 6 Series, model year 2006 through 2010 M5, and model year 2007 through 2010 M6 models, the insulated bulkhead connector for the positive battery cable may have been incorrectly attached to the trunk floor panel, which can lead to a loosening of the bolt connection. As it loosens, an increase in electrical resistance at this cable connection is possible and could cause the cable connection to overheat.
Overheating could lead to a fire, even when the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, you are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made.
Your BMW center will inspect and secure the battery bolt cable connection as necessary.
