Approximately42,000 model-year 2008-12 BMW 128i, 135i, and 135is sedans, coupes and convertibles are being recalled due to electrical issues. 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.

BMW will begin notifying owners Sept. 27. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the blower-regulator wiring harness and replace if necessary.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
