Make / Models :           Model/Build Years:     
     BMW / 6-Series       2007
Manufacturer : BMW Of North America, Llc  
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 07V178000  Mfr's Report Date : APR 13, 2007

Component: Air Bags:Frontal:Sensor/Control Module

Potential Number Of Units Affected : 225

 Certain passenger vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 208, 'Occupant crash protection.' the front passenger seat has a sensing system to detect if the seat is occupied. This sensing is programmed to detect if the seat is occupied by a small adult or certain child restraint seats. Placing certain child seats on the front passenger seat is designed to result in the automatic deactivation of the front seat passenger's air bag.

 In some cases, the sensing system may misinterpret a properly seated small adult as one of these specific child seats, resulting in deactivation of the front passenger air bag when the air bag might be beneficial for the adult, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

 Dealers will replace the front passenger seat sensor. The recall is expected to begin during may 2007. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
