BMW has issued a recall through the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for a fuel level sensor issue.
The automotive producer has issued a recall for certain 5 Series and 5 Series GT models belonging to the 2011 model years due to a problem with the fuel sensor can cause the fuel gauge to show the driver that a larger amount of fuel than is in fact available.
The recall, which affects 6,000 vehicles, is to remedy the problem which BMW is said to be the result of the fuel level sensor becoming wedged against the side of the tank.
Aftermarket professionals may recall that fuel gauge issues due to contamination of the sensor circuit occurred in the past. Those problems were traced back to high sulphur fuels in North America. This current problem does not appear to be related.
The recall affects certain 2010 and 2011 5-series and 5-series Gran Turismo passenger vehicles manufactured from January 12 through July 1, 2010.
