Power Train Bmw 2014
Engine Cuts Out, While Traveling, Stalls Completely, As If The Kill Switch Has Been Depressed/engaged. This Has Happened To Me On 4 Separate Occasions In The Last 2500miles. The Two Most Recent Times This Has Happened Presented A Hazard To Myself And To Other Road Users. I Have Taken The Bike To My Local bmw Dealer, They Opened A Puma Case As They Were Unable To Duplicate The Problem, Nor Were They Able To Find A Solution. I Did Contact bmw Directly Who Told Me There Was Nothing They Could Do And That They Were Sorry But Had No Idea What The Problem Could Be. The 1st Time This Happened I Was In 5th Gear, Traveling At Approximately 58 Mph, The Temperature Was In The Low 50’s Fahrenheit, I Was Traveling Up A Slight Uphill Paved Highway Road At Around 9pm, With A 7-10% Gradient, When The Engine Completely Stalled, Lights Stayed On, Display Showed “turn Off Or Cancel.” I Turned The Bike Off, Then Back On And Made My Way Home. I Took The Bike To The Dealer The Following Day. They Ran A Load Test On The Battery And Said That Was Most Likely The Cause. I Replaced The Battery With A New bmw Battery. I Then Went On Another Trip. The Bike Stalled Again, Engine Died Out Completely, I Was Lane Splitting On A Very Large And Busy Freeway. I Was Able To Coast To The Emergency Lane. I Was In 2nd Gear Traveling Approximately 20-30 Mph When It Died. The Temperature Was High 90’s, Around 2pm. It Happened Again In Phoenix, I Was In 3rd Gear, Late Afternoon, 105 Fahrenheit When The Engine Cut Out Completely. The Highway Cut Out And The Most Recent Cut Out In Phoenix Were Dangerous Scenarios And I Felt The Engine Cutting Out Without Warning Is A Definite Hazard To Myself And To Other Road Users. There Are Reports Of Other Riders Having This Same Issue. bmw Does Not Care, So I Thought I Would Report This Dangerous Situation To The Nhtsa. Thank You. *tr
