As we transition into the New Year one vehicle recall notice has been issued this week from BMW for a small number of M performance models.
The vehicles in question are the 2019 F90 M5 and F92 M8 (VINs found here) which have an incorrectly routed section of the wiring harness. The issue may allow the transmission wiring harness to short circuit and shift the transmission into the neutral gear suddenly.
Affected vehicles may stop suddenly and lose power to the wheels. This would trigger the transmission to enter the emergency program and engage the parking lock when the vehicle is restarted. Obviously, this increases the risk of an accident or injury occurring to vehicle occupants and other road users.
Owners need to contact their preferred BWW dealer to arrange for a repair.
