BMW Recall Affects 61,000 Vehicles Sold in U.S.

BMW issued a recall for 61,000 vehicles with sunroof software issues.

The sunroof function control unit may be incorrectly programmed and allow the sunroof to close without the key fob’s presence in the vehicle. The vehicles under recall are equipped with an auto-reversal/anti-trap system, but, according to BMW, an individual could be injured if the sunroof is closed without the key fob inside the vehicle.

According to, BMW learned of the defect in March during internal tests. Engineers found that sunroof software was incorrect in vehicles manufactured for customers in the U.S.

No injuries or accidents have been reported because of this recall. BMW dealerships will reprogram the sunroof function control units free of charge to owners after notifications are sent in June 2022. BMW vehicle owners may call 1-800-525-7417.
