BMW Recalling 134,100 5 Series Sedans

BMW is recalling a 134,100 2008-20010 5 series sedans ( 528i, 535i, 550i, and M5) because the taillights can go on the fritz. The problem is due to “increased resistance” at electrical contact points in the taillight housings that can cause the taillights to go out. If the resistance becomes a problem, drivers could lose the ability to switch on tailights, brake lights, turn signals or backing lights.
RECALL Subject : Tail light Failure
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V407000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 134,100
Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC
SUMMARY: BMW is recalling certain model year 2008 through 2010 528i, 535i, 550i, and M5 passenger cars manufactured from March 1, 2007, through December 31, 2009. Over time, increased resistance at the taillight electrical contact points may cause damage to the ground terminal and housing of the connector resulting in an intermittent or permanent loss of functionality of one or more rear lamp functions (tail, brake, turn-signal, reverse).
CONSEQUENCE: Intermittent light operation reduces the ability to warn other motorists of the driver’s intentions, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear lamp bulb carriers free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during October 2013. Owners may contact BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
