Vehicles Affected: Approximately 42,000 model-year 2008-12 BMW 128i, 135i and 135is sedans, coupes and convertibles
The Problem: The wiring and electrical connectors in the blower-regulator wiring harness may overheat, which could cause the electrical connectors to melt, increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the blower-regulator wiring harness and replace it with a new part for free.
What Owners Should Do: BMW will begin notifying owners Sept. 27. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
