BMW 545I Air Bags problems : 6.
There Is A bmw Service Bulletin Si B 65 75 06 Where They Say They Will Fix An airbag And Seatbelt Issue On E60, E61 (5 Series) Vehicles Produced Up To 11/2005. The Bulletin Says It Is Due To Oc3 Seat Mat Fault. Due To Parts Defect They Also Cover It With An Additional 10 Year Warranty According To The Bulletin. My bmw 5 Series Was Manufactured In 08/04 And Currently Has The Exact Same Issue Outlined In The Service Bulletin According To My Mechanic. He Said That I Have Micro Cracks In My Oc3 Seat Mat And Thats Why My airbags Are Now Off All The Time When I Drive. I Currently Do Not Have Any Running airbags In My Vehicle Because Their Computer System Detects Micro Cracks In My Oc3 Seat Mat And Disengages The airbags Because It Detects That Someone Is Not Sitting In The Seat. I Do Not Feel Safe Anymore Driving This Vehicle And Since It Displays It On The Main Screen At All Times I Cannot Even Sell The Vehicle Since No One Would Want One Without airbags That Work. bmw Says They Will Correct This Issue On A Customer Complain Basis In The Recall. When I Let bmw Dealership Know About My Issue They Say That My Vehicle Does Not Show Up On The Computer And bmw Is Refusing To Fix The Issue. I Have A 5 Series As Described In Their Bulletin. I Am Within The Guidelines Issued On Si B65 75 06 Dated February 2009. From Searching On The Internet There Are Other Customers With bmw 545’s Who Have Had This Issue Rectified By bmw. It Is The Same Part And Same Issue (micro Cracks) They Need To Cover This So I Have Working airbags. *tt

I Purchase This Vehicle On 2012, Three Days After The Purchase, I Come Back To The Dealership, Because “air Bag Light Its On”, Two Days Later When I Pick Up My Car, air Bags Lights Still On, The Mechanic Said Its A Sensor. A Year Later Bring The Car To Another Mechanic, Who Said Its “no air Bag Connected” Which Scared Me Because Me And My Entire Family Are On Risk, What Happened If We Crash? Where Its The air Bags? They Was Deployed Before In A Car Accident With A Previous Owner, But Dealership Don’t Tell Me Nothing About This, They Sold Me The Cars Said “its Not Car Accident Involved”. Now I Try To They Take His Car And Pay Me Back What I Pay Or Just Give Me Another Car, But Its Difficult To Talk To This People. I Feel As Victim Of “fraud” If I Have The Knowledge That This Car Had A Accident Before, I Don’t Take This Vehicle. Have To Be A Responsible For This Outlaw Action. The Dealership Name Its “florida Fine Cars” Located On “21151 Nw 2nd Avenue- Miami Gardens, Fl 33169.” Phone “(305) 384-6400. I Just Need Justice In This Case Please, Help Me Please. *tr

bmw Has Refused To Fix The Issue Under Recall Of The Passenger Restraint Dealing With The Seat Mat/sensor That Develops Cracks Over Time From Repeated Entry And Exit Of The Vehicle. This Issue Was A Recall And This Car Is Clearly Effected By It But bmw Says It Is Not. As The Vehicle Was Just Purchased To Replace Another Vehicle That Had Actually Had An Accident, The Safety Related Equipment Is Extremely Important. bmw Admits There Is A Recall(id# 76546) But Claims This Vehicle Is Not Covered. This Could Effectively End My Ownership Of Any bmw If This Issue Is Not Fix Promptly. *tr

Custom Ordered 545i In 2004 As Still Original/existing Owner. Have Had Repeated Electrical Errors On I Drive “dynamic Drive Failure Proceed With Caution As The Steering Has Been Effected And See Your bmw Authorized Rep,” “electrical Failure See Your bmw Authorized Rep. Immediately Proceed With Caution, “passenger Restraint Fault Proceed With Caution Effecting Belt And Belt Force Limiter, Stalling At Very Low And As High Rates Of Speed As High As 70 Mph Without Any Warning.” Sometimes The Car Logs The Errors And Many Times It Doesn’t Fully That It Takes bmw Na’s Computer To Access The Extended Ram In The Car To Retrieve Per bmw Na That The Dealerships Can’t. I Even Have Pictures Of The Errors The Car Doesn’t Log So They Claim They Can’t Do Anything. bmw Engineers In Germany Have Been Involved As The Car Refused To Reprogram Twice For The Dealership. This Car Is Compliant W/all Recalls Per The Dealer And Has Been In The Shop Over 16 Times W/only 70k Miles. The Dealer And bmw Na Can’t Determine The Root Cause Of The Problems Except To Say They Think They’re Being Triggered By Low Voltage And Its Had 3 Batteries At Less Than 70k Miles, Isn’t Driven Much, And bmw Na Nor The Dealership Can Permanently Resolve The Errors And Stalling And/or Stop Them. bmw Na And The Dealership Have Replaced The Entire Wiring Harness At 13k Miles, Have Refused To Take The Car Back After Several Attempts After Qualifying As A Lemon Under The Lemon Law Since Before 10k Miles And Been Given Multiple Excuses For All Of The Errors They Can’t Resolve. They Keep Telling Us To Bring It Back Every Time, Buy An Extended Warranty At $6k To Continually Service Electrical And Stalling/running Rough Issues They Can’t Fix Under Original Factory Warranty. They’re Not Reporting Service Trips To Carfax And Refuse To Release Documentation On The Car Regarding The Problems To Us Or Our Attorneys. *tr

I Recently Purchased A 2004 bmw 545i. On The Second Time Having A Passenger In The Car, While Driving Down The Highway, I Was Alerted By A Chime And Message That The Passenger Side airbag / Safety Restraint System Had Failed. Also Noticed Was That When Turning On The Driver’s Seat Heater, The Seat Got Very Hot In One Particular Spot- On The Left Side Near My Hip (hot Enough That I Received A Minor Burn On My Leg Through A Pair Of Jeans). I Contacted bmw Customer Service About The Problem, As I Was Made Aware That There Were Recalls On Other Models For The Same Reasons, And Was Told That There Were No Open Recalls For Either Issue On My Model. The Representative Simply Explained That The Vehicle Was Out Of Warranty And That Fixing The Issues Would Be At My Expense. I Believe That These Are Very Serious Defects That Could Affect My Safety And The Safety Of My Passengers.
