Recall 12V-126 - Check The Battery Cable Connection

Technical Service

PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED IN THIS SERVICE INFORMATION ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES BEFORE CUSTOMER

DELIVERY OR THE NEXT TIME THEY ARE IN THE SHOP FOR MAINTENANCE OR REPAIRS.

BMW centers must ensure recalls are completed after having been notified by BMW of North America, LLC (BMWNA) that a safety-related defect

or noncompliance exists in any motor vehicle or item of replacement equipment in the center's possession at the time of notification. In BMW NA's

case, this notification would typically be made by the issuance of a recall notification in the form of a Service Information bulletin (SIB) or

transmission of a Dealer Communication System (DCS) recall message.

Under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended, if a recall campaign is announced by BMW NA, centers must ensure

that all recalls on new vehicles and new items of replacement equipment are completed BEFORE delivery to the consumer. This means that centers

may not legally deliver new motor vehicles or new items of replacement equipment to consumers with an open recall.

The Safety Act also prohibits centers from selling or leasing the motor vehicle or item of replacement equipment, unless and until the open recall has

been completed BEFORE delivery. This also pertains to vehicles in the Certified Pre-Owned program, and to items of replacement equipment.

Finally, BMW centers should not sell or use parts that have been recalled by BMW NA. Please follow the specific instructions provided by BMW

NA on the return or disposition of the parts.

SUBJECT

Recall Campaign 12V-126: Check the Battery Cable Connection

MODEL

E60, E61 (5 Series)

E63, E64 (6 Series)

SITUATION

The positive battery cable is routed from the battery in the trunk to the engine via a bolted connection in the trunk floor. The bolted connection is

secured to the trunk floor by an insulated bulkhead connector. In very rare cases, the connector may not be properly attached to the body. Over time,

vibration, changes in temperature and environmental conditions may cause a loosening of the bolted connection. This may cause fluctuations in the

vehicle electrical system; a no-start condition; and, in extreme cases, can lead to overheating of the bolted connection. This can result in a fire in the

trunk which could lead to the vehicle itself.

AFFECTED VEHICLES

This Recall Campaign involves all E60, E61, E63 and E64 models produced from June 2003 to July 2010.

In order to determine whether a specific vehicle has had this Recall Campaign completed or is affected by this Recall Campaign, first check the

B-pillar label for code number 615. If code number 615 has been punched out, the campaign has already been performed. If code number 615 has

not been punched out, it will be necessary to utilize the "Service Menu" of DCSnet (Dealer Communication System) or the Key Reader. Based on

the response of the system, either proceed with the corrective action or take no further action.

CORRECTION

Check the battery cable insulated bulkhead connector from inside the trunk and, if necessary, secure the connector properly in place. Grease the

affected area and replace the battery cable cover in the trunk.

Important Note:

In the unlikely event other damage (for example: thermal damage to the trunk trim and damage or corrosion to the cable connection) is found that is

directly related to the condition described in this recall, the vehicle owner must not be billed for this additional work (parts and/or labor).

A PuMA case with photograph(s) must be submitted which details the additional issues found. The PuMA case response will advise you on what

other corrective actions are required to be performed.

PROCEDURE
