On certain Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV), weld beads may not have been removed from the high voltage battery during assembly. As a result, during the initial charge to full capacity, the weld beads could cause a short circuit between the battery cells.
A short circuit could create the risk of a fire.
BMW will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to inspect the high voltage battery. The battery modules will be replaced, if necessary.
Note: Only one of the affected vehicles was sold to a retail customer. Dealers will inspect and repair all other vehicles before they are sold.
