BMW of North America is recalling 3,188 model year 2018 230i, 230i xDrive, M240i, M240i xDrive, M2, and X3 xDrive 30i SAV vehicles.

Thee vehicles may have an error in the software for the instrument panel, causing the display to not illuminate properly.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays."

If the display does not illuminate during start up or does not illuminate various control and warning symbols while the vehicle is being driven, the risk of a crash can increase.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster display software, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2018.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
