Recall Category: Air Bags, Seat Belts – Seat belt sensors may not detect belted condition

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V164000 reports the sensors in the front seat belt buckles may inaccurately detect a belted occupant as unbelted, possibly causing the air bag and seat belt pretensioners to deploy improperly in the event of a crash.

According to the NHTSA, if the air bag and/or seat belt pretensioners deploy improperly in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.

BMW will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the front seat belt buckles, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 11, 2020. Owners may contact BMW Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-525-7417 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). No manufacturer’s designation was listed for this recall at press time.
