The Vehicles Seat Occupancy Sensor Is Malfunctioning For No Particular Reason Which Will Prevent For Passenger airbag To Deploy When It Is Suppose To In The Event Of An Accident, My Vehicle Is Not That Old And Has Not Been Abused But Yet This Issue Occurred Since About Less Than A Year Ago, When Someone Sits In The Passenger Seat The Warning Light Comes On That Indicates That The air Bag Is Off And The airbag Warning Light Comes On As Well. I Have Tried To Get The Manufacturer To Take Responsibility With No Luck, They Want Over A $1000 Plus To Replace The Sensor, My Issue Remains Unresolved; I Ran A Check For This Issue Online And Found That Almost Every bmw Owner Experiences The Same Issue And Almost Every bmw In Different Range Of Recent Years And Different Models Has The Same Problem And This Is A Mass-produced Manufacturer Defect That Has Gone Unnoticed. This Is A Safety Issue, If I Had Been In An Accident My Passenger airbag Would Not Deploy, This Issue Still Remains Unresolved As Of This Date. This Problem Began About A Year Ago When My Vehicle Was Only About 3 Years Old And 45000 Miles And Has Been Getting Worst With Time, Before It Was Occasional But Now It Is All The Time, The Repair Would Consist Of Taking The Entire Passenger Seat Out And Apart And Replace The Sensor-pad That Is Connected To The Vehicles Safety System Computer Placed Inside The Seat Pads, This Is Not An Easy Task Or A Repair That Is Accessible. Most Definitely There Should Be A Safety Recall On This Item. Most People Don’t Know That They Can File A Complaint And Request Recalls On Their Vehicle Issues And That Is Why You May Not See Many Complaints About This Issue. *tr

Passenger Occupancy Sensor Fails, Causing air Bag To Become Inoperative And airbag Light To Appear On Dash. In Case Of Accident, The airbag Will Not Deploy. Dealer Wants Nearly 2000 Dollars To Fix, Though They Say It Had “already Been Repaired In 2008″ When The Vehicle Was Two Years Old; Dealer Confirmed That They Hear This Complaint All Of The Time. Recall Campaign 08v384000 Addresses This Issue For Some bmw Models/seats, But Does Not Adequately Address All Models And Years That Have The Problem. For The x5 Model, For Example, The “comfort Seat” Is Covered, But The Standard Seat, Which Has The Very Same Problem (not Related To The Comfort System) Is Not. Please Widen The Coverage Of The Campaign To Include All Models And Years Affected By This Widespread Problem. *tr

Depending On The Manner And Frequency Of The Front Passenger’s Entry And Exit, Small Cracks Have Developed In The Mat. If This Occurs, The Front Passenger air Bags, With The Exception Of The Head Protection System, Will Be Deactivated And The air Bag Warning Lamp As Well As The Passenger air Bag “on-off” Lamp Will Be Illuminated. Consequence In This Situation The Front Passenger air Bags Will Not Deploy Even If A Sufficiently Severe Accident Would Occur And Occupant Protection Provided By The System Would Not Be Possible. Remedy Dealers Will Rework The Front Passenger Seat Sensor Mat So That External Force Application To The Seat Does Not Cause A Crack To The Mat. The Recall Is Expected To Begin During Late September 2008. bmw Will Also Extend The Warranty On These Vehicles To 10 Years From First Registration Without Any Mileage Limit. After Contacting bmw Of North America, They Informed Me My Vin / Vehicle Is Not Affected By This Recall. I Believe That It Is, And This Is A Serious Safety Issue As The Passenger Seat airbag System Has Been Deactivated In My Vehicle. There May Be Many More Vehicles Affected By This Defect Then Those Originally Included In This Recall And This Should Be Investigated. *tr

Despite The bmw Recall 08v384000, The Dealer As Well As bmw Of North America Say The Vehicle Is Not Covered Under This Recall. This Appears To Be The “corporate” Response To All Owners.

On June 24, 2006, A-united Leased The m5 Through bmw Of Monrovia, Formerly Assael bmw. During The Duration Of The Lease, A-united Incurred Less Than 1800 Miles On The m5 Primarily Because The m5‘s Safety And Reliability Had Caused Serious Concerns. From As Early As November 2006, A-united Began Experiencing Problems With The m5 When The Unusual Noise From The Engine Became Louder And Louder. Shortly, The m5 Began Hesitating To Accelerate. On October 22, 2007, The m5 Was Taken To bmw Of Monrovia For Routine Service As Well As The Cautioned Service Engine Light Soon Alert On The m5. The Technician Explained That The m5 Had A Defective Brake Booster Pressure Sensor And He Discovered A Fault Memory In The Vacuum Sensor. He Assured That He Would Take Care Of The Problem And The Service Light As Well As The Unusual Noise From The Engine Would No Longer Occur. Contrary To The Technician’s Assurance, The Noise Continued And Did Not Go Away. The m5 Experienced Acceleration Problems On And Off. By June 27, 2008, It Was Due For Another Routine Service And Again, A-united Expressed Concerns For The Unusual Noise And Problems With Acceleration. The Technician Continued To Represent That The m5 Was Operable, Safe And In Working Condition Since His Conclusion Was Based On The Fact That None Of The Complaints Or Faults Were Stored. A-united Trusted The Technician Along With bmw Of North America’s (“bmw“) Sound Reputation And Continued To Rely On Such That The m5 Had No Problems. But, Shortly Thereafter, The m5‘s Noise Grew Even Louder Than It Ever Was. The Service Engine Light Soon Alert Came On Again. In October 2008, The m5 Was Lightly Rear-ended By Another Vehicle Because Of The Acceleration Problem. This Time, The m5‘s Performance Issues Had Resulted In An Accident. The m5 Continues To Have Noises And Acceleration Problems. Now, The Passenger airbag Defect Has Occurred As Well. *tw

The Passenger Restraint System, airbag, Seat Belt, Belt Tensioner Warning Showed Up In The Car Computer. Went To The Dealer And Dealer Said That They Will Need To Replace The Passenger Seat Mat Sensor And Battery Safety Terminal. The Cost Is Around $3500. When I Searched Online I Found That The bmw 5 Series 2004 – 2006 Has A Recall On This Item Already – Please Link. (http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/recallsummary.cfm?rcl_campaign_id=08v384000&prod_id=113225&moduletype=vehicle&make=bmw&model=5%20series&veh_model_year=2004&searchtype=drilldown). However, My 2006 m5 Even Though Is An E60 And The Same Chasis And Model As The 2004-2006 bmw 5 Series Is Not Included In The Recall. That’s The Reason That The Dealer Is Asking Me For The Full Price. This Fault Which Is Already A Recall For The 5 Series Car Should Be Added For The bmw m5 Model As Well. This Is A Huge Safety Issue As The Passenger Side air Bag Won’t Deploy Unless This Is Fixed. On Top Of This, bmw Has This Part In Back Order And The Part Won’t Be Available Until 11/5/2012. I Find This Ridiculous As I Am Supposed To Be Driving Around A Car With A Faulty Passenger air Bag For Over 8 Months!! *tr

Car Is A 2005 bmw 745i. Driver’s Side Occupant Sensor (in Seat) Has Cracked And Is Causing airbag Light To Illuminate And As I Understand Is Disabling The Driver’s Side airbag. There Is Already A Recall On The Car For The Passenger-side Sensor Cracking, Which Is A Very Similar Part. Dealership And bmw Usa Is Refusing To Assist Me, I Believe That Due To The Similarities In Nature To The Passenger-side Seat Sensor Recall, The Drivers-side Seat Sensor Needs To Be Looked Into As Well For Obvious Safety Reasons. *tr
