make and model information
SERIES 5 & SERIES 7
VIN (Vehicle identification number)
What are the defects?
If the vehicle is involved in a frontal or rear-end collision, the crash data may not be evaluated correctly by the vehicles airbag central sensor and this may lead to the passive restraint systems (front airbags and seat belt tensioners) not being activated.
What are the hazards?
It is possible that the front seat occupants seat belt pre-tensioners, and the front drivers and passengers airbags may not deploy. If this was to occur it may lead to an increased risk of injury for vehicle occupants.
