The pedestrian warning sound may malfunction

BMW of North America is recalling 4,926 model year 2024 i5 eDrive40 and i5 M60 vehicles.

During vehicle start-up, the artificial sound generator control unit may fail to generate the external pedestrian warning sound.

Without external warning sounds, pedestrians may be unaware of an approaching vehicle, and be at risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers will update the external artificial sound generator software free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed February 13, 2024.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
