BMW 5 SERIES Air Bags Frontal Sensor/control Module

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 Air Bags Frontal Sensor/control Module Report #10148243

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2006.BMW 5 SERIES 2006, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE . I OWN A 2006 BMW 525I. THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE SEAT HAS A SENSOR THAT DISABLES THE AIR BAG IF AN ADULT IS NOT SITTING IN THE SEAT (BASED ON WEIGHT) SINCE IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT AIRBAGS ARE DANGEROUS FOR CHILDREN. THE SENSOR IN MY CAR IS MALFUNCTIONING AND ALWAYS KEEPS THE AIR BAG DISABLED, EVEN IF AN ADULT IS IN THE SEAT. BMW ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM, BUT DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE A SOLUTION. THE DEALER HAS ORDERED A REPLACEMENT PART, BUT HAS NO DELIVERY DATE FOR THE PART. IN ADDITION, IT ISN'T EVEN CERTAIN THAT THE REPLACEMENT PART WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM. SO, I'M DRIVING AROUND WITHOUT AIR BAG PROTECTION FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE SEAT. *NM.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANE53516C. Bmw 5 Series 2006 problem was reported in DALLAS, TX.

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 Equipment Electrical Air Conditioner Report #10174207

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2006.BMW 5 SERIES 2006, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with EQUIPMENT:ELECTRICAL:AIR CONDITIONER . DUE TO A CERTAIN DEFECT IN THE AIRCONDITIONING AIR DUCT, THE HUMIDITY BUILDS UP TO A HIGH LEVEL CAUSING EVENTUAL MOLD FORMATION IN THE AIR DUCT. AS A RESULT OF THAT A BAD SMELL WILL PROGRESSIVELY INCREASE UNTILL IT CAN BE EASILY NOTICABLE ESPECIALLY DURING THE FIRST MINUTE OF STARTING THE AIR CONDITIONNER. MOLDS ARE KNOWN TO BE STRONG ALLERGENS AND CAN RESULT IN WORSENING NASAL ALLERGY SYMPTOMS, COUGH, NASAL CONGESTION, AND SNEEZING. I BELLEIVE IT IS A HEALTH HAZARD TO PEOPLE WITH MOLD ALLERGIES LIKE MY SON WHO HAD NOTICABLE WOSENING OF HIS NASAL CONGESTION AND EVENTUALLY HIS OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA SYMPTOMS AS A RESULT OF THAT. UP ON CANTACTING THE LOCAL DEALER IN TEH AREA AND LATER THE BMW CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT, THEY ACKNOWLEDGED THE PROBLEM SINCE I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THE SAME COMPLAINT, BUT THEY ONLY OFFERED TO CLEAN THE DUCTS ONCE A YEAR, WHICH IS A SHORT TERM REMEDY AND DOES NOT PREVENT THE RECURRENCE OF THE PROBLEM. I BELEIVE IT IS A HAELTH RISK AND CUSTOMERS NEED TO BE INFORMED UPFRONT ABOUT THIS PROBLEM BEFORE THEY MAKE A SELECTION TO BUY THAT VEHICLE. *NM.1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 4000 miles.

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 car safety problem was reported on Oct 29, 2010.BMW 5 SERIES 2006, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . BMW CAR CAN BE A DEATH TRAP! MY 2006 530I SMG GEARBOX WITH 34K MILES LOST POWER COMPLETELY WITHOUT WARNING ON THE ROAD. LUCKILY, I WAS APPROACHING A STOP LIGHT AND THE CAR BECAME UNDRIVABLE AND NEEDED TO BE TOLLED AWAY. I WAS 5 MINUTES FROM GETTING ON A HIGHWAY AND IF I WAS ON HIGHWAY, IT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT STORY. THE FAILURE WAS DUE TO A LEAK IN THE HYDRAULIC COMPONENT OF THE TRANSMISSION. THIS IS A SEALED SYSTEM WITH NO USER SERVICEABLE/INSPECTION SUPPORT AND OBVIOUSLY THE CAR HAS NO MONITOR FACILITY FOR THIS COMPONENT SINCE THERE WAS NO WARNING. WITH THE HYDRAULIC FAILURE, THE TRANSMISSION DISENGAGED THE GEAR BACK TO NEUTRAL WHICH RESULTS IN COMPLETE POWER LOST AND I COULD NOT "RE-ENGAGE" IT BACK IN GEAR. THE TRANSMISSION IS UNDER COMPUTER CONTROL (AUTOMATIC). *TR.Mileage was 33800 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANE73546B. Bmw 5 Series 2006 problem was reported in AUSTIN, TX.

THE BMW CENTER EXAMINED THE CAR AND STATED THAT WATER HAD ENTERED THE CAR THROUGH THE SUNROOF DRAINAGE SYSTEM AND FLOODED THE COMPARTMENT HOUSING THE CONTROL SYSTEMS, CAUSING THE SUDDEN MALFUNCTION. DESPITE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO MAINTENANCE PROTOCOL ESTABLISHED BY BMW FOR THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM, I HAD THE SUNROOF DRAINS CHECKED ON OCTOBER 2009 AND WAS ASSURED BY THE BMW CENTER THAT IT WAS WORKING TO SPECIFICATION AT THAT TIME. NEVERTHELESS, BMW'S CENTER ATTRIBUTED THE FAILURE TO THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM BEING PARTIALLY BLOCKED. (N.B.

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 Engine And Engine Cooling Report #10415426

BMW 5 SERIES 2006 car safety problem was reported on June 29, 2011.BMW 5 SERIES 2006, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . I HAD A RECENT PROBLEM WITH OUR 525I. I WAS DRIVING IT AND IT LOST POWER/DIED. WHEN THE VEHICLE DIED, I LOST POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES. THE CAR WOULD NOT RESTART AND NO ERROR LIGHTS OR MESSAGES WERE DISPLAYED ON THE IDRIVE. I HAD THE CAR TOWED HOME. AFTER THE INITIAL CHECK OF THE VEHICLE, IT SHOWED THE CRANK SENSOR FAULT. I NOTICED A BUNCH OF METAL THROW OFF IN THE OIL FILTER AND THE VEHICLE DID NOT HAVE COMPRESSION IN CYLINDER 2 AND 6. I WAS THINKING CATASTROPHIC ENGINE FAILURE. SINCE I AM VERY FAMILIAR WITH AMERICAN/JAPANESE VEHICLES, I DECIDED TO LOOK INTO THE PROBLEM MYSELF AFTER GETTING NO RESPONSE FROM BMWNA. THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY WITH 85K MILES. THE METAL THROW OFF WAS DUE TO THE TIMING CHAIN JUMPING OFF OF THE EXHAUST CAM GEAR AND GRINDING AGAINST THE BACK OF IT. THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM WAS THE TWO ALUMINUM SCREWS UNDER THE CAM SHAFT GEARS. BOTH HEADS WERE BROKEN OFF AND ONE MADE ITS WAY UP THE CHAIN GETTING CAUGHT IN THE CHAIN AND GEAR. THESE SCREWS ARE ALUMINUM. I DON┐T KNOW IF THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM BUT FOR THE BOLTS TO BREAK IT WOULD BE DUE OVER TORQUED/TIGHTEN BOLTS OR EXTREME PRESSURE FROM EXPANDING/CONTRACTING OF THE MAGNESIUM VS ALUMINUM. THE OTHER BROKEN BOLT HEAD IS STILL SOME WHERE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE OIL PAN. THE EXHAUST CAM GEAR WAS CHEWED UP, BUT STILL SERVICEABLE. I RE-TIMED THE CAR AND CHECKED THE COMPRESSION. I GOT LUCKY AND COMPRESSION IS GOOD SO NO BENT VALVES. I DISASSEMBLE EVERYTHING AND NOW I PATIENTLY WAITING FOR SEVERAL PARTS. HOWEVER, I'M STILL DEALING WITH THE BROKEN HEAD THAT IS SOME WHERE IN THE OIL PAN. THIS IS A SERIOUS MANUFACTURES DEFECT AND I HAVE RETAINED ALL OF THE PARTS AND INCLUDING THE OIL. *TR.Mileage was 85047 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANE53586C. Bmw 5 Series 2006 problem was reported in STOCKTON, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Vehicle had 6 CYLINDERS. FUEL TYPE: GAS. VEHICLE SPEED: 70 mph.
