BMW recalls certain iX3 passenger vehicles.

JUNE 25, 2021

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain iX3 passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles where in the event of a very serious accident involving damage to the high-voltage vehicle electrical system, the 12-volt electrical system and its components may be damaged by high-voltage transmission due to a software defect in the battery management system. This may, in the event of an accident, lead to the failure of post-crash functions (e.g. eCall, hazard warning system, etc.).

There are 77 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 22 July 2019 - 06 May 2021.

What to do:

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited will directly contact all affected customers by post advising them to make an appointment with their local Authorised Repairer where any necessary repairs/replacements of parts will be carried out.

If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall, then you can contact BMW’s customer care on 1890 719 421 or by email at [email protected]

 

BMW recalls certain 3 Series passenger vehicles

APRIL 26, 2021

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain 3 Series passenger vehicles.

The affected vehicles were produced between July 2004 to July 2011.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles where the vehicles concerned may, as time goes by, be affected by a contact fault due to frictional corrosion on the connector from the wiring harness to the blower control unit. Over time, this may cause damage to the insulation of the wiring harness, which could trigger a short circuit. This could cause a vehicle fire, even when the engine is switched off.

There are approximately 16,195 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.

What to do:

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited will directly contact all affected customers by post advising them to make an appointment with their local Authorised Repairer where any necessary repairs/replacements of parts will be carried out.
