The roof function control unit may be programmed incorrectly, allowing the sunroof to close without the key fob present inside the vehicle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 118, “Power-Operated Window Systems.” A sunroof that closes without the key fob present inside the vehicle can increase the risk of injury.
Solution: Dealers will reprogram the roof function control unit, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 13, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
