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.).
The BMW iX3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 22 July 2019 and 6 May 2021.
