Published on 23 January 2020

The connector of the positive battery cable on the front power distribution box may be damaged over the lifetime of the vehicle by vibrations and currents. This may lead to failure of the engine and of the vehicle’s electrical system, including headlights and occupant protection which will increase the risk of an accident and injuries to the occupants.

The BMW 1 Series models affected by this recall were manufactured between March 2007 to November 2011.
