1999 BMW M3 Recall

Item Affected:
Date Announced:
Description of Recall:
These vehicles are built with a side air bag system consisting of door-mounted thorax air bags (rear door air bags are optional), a Head Protection System (HPS) for front occupants, a central electronic safing sensor and diagnostic system, left and right satellite impact sensors, and associated wiring. This system is unduly sensitive to certain non-crash impacts, such as contacting large potholes or curbs. This could cause the side air bag and HPS to deploy without an actual side crash. In addition, the Battery Safety Terminal (BST) could also activate, disconnecting the starter cable from the battery. In this case, the vehicle's electrical system could continue to operate and the engine would continue to run, but after stopping, could not be restarted.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will reprogram the central computer control module that regulates the performance of all of the vehicle's occupant protection systems. Owner notification is expected to begin during January 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
