Summary

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2019 C400X scooters. Water may collect in the throttle cable, which can freeze in cold temperatures, resulting in a stuck throttle.

 

Remedy

BMW will notify owners, and as an interim repair, dealers will dry the throttle cable and affix a warning label instructing owners to not ride in temperatures near or below freezing, free of charge. Owners are also advised to not wash their motorcycle near the throttle cable, and to avoid riding in rainy conditions. The final remedy is still under development. An interim letter is expected to be mailed April 6, 2020. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

AFFECTED VEHICLES

To determine if a specific vehicle is affected by this Campaign, it will be necessary to verify all VIN’s through AIR (Aftersales Information Research). Based on the response of the system, either proceed with the repair or take no further action.

VINs in DCS Vehicle History Check may not appear until 24-72 hours after the release of this bulletin, therefore AIR is the recommended method for determining open campaigns

 

NHTSA STATEMENT

Please be reminded that it is a violation of federal law (The Safety Act) for you to sell, lease or deliver any new motorcycle covered by this notification until the recall repair has been performed. This means that dealers may not legally deliver new motorcycles to consumers until they are fixed or use/sell replacement equipment/parts subject to this recall.

 

Note also:

  • Substantial civil penalties apply to violations of the Safety Act
  • You should not sell, lease or deliver any Certified Pre-Owned or used motorcycles subject to a safety recall until the repair is completed
  • Follow any special instructions that we provide to you for the return or disposition of recall parts

 

SITUATION

The position of the throttle cable may cause an accumulation of water in the throttle cable sleeves that will not drain when riding in the rain for an extended period of time or when thoroughly cleaning the vehicle.

When riding in outside temperatures below freezing, this can lead to stiff movement up to the complete freezing of the throttle cables, and lead to a critical riding situation.

Figure 1: Routing of throttle cable.

 

CORRECTION

In the vehicles concerned, Throttle cables and throttle-cable fixture must be replaced.

Por la presente le informamos sobre este importante llamado a revisión por motivos de seguridad, si bien aún no contamos con una solución para el problema.  Le notificaremos en una próxima comunicación tan pronto contemos con una solución al problema.

 

¿Qué podría suceder?

Al conducir a temperaturas muy bajas, se podría acumular agua en el cable del acelerador la cual podría congelarse; esto podría impedir el funcionamiento del acelerador ya que podría atascarse. Si esto ocurre, es posible que no pueda desacelerar reduciendo la velocidad con el acelerador, lo que podría aumentar el riesgo de un accidente o choque.

Le recomendamos no conducir su scooter en temperaturas bajo cero (o cercanas a este nivel) ni en condiciones lluviosas.  También le recomendamos no lavar el área cercana al cable del acelerador de la motocicleta.  Si conduce en un ambiente con temperaturas bajo cero (o cercanas a este nivel) y nota un comportamiento inusual del acelerador, es posible que la motocicleta esté experimentando este problemaDe ser así, comuníquese con el departamento de asistencia en carretera para motocicletas de BMW llamando al 1-877-680-2176 para que el scooter sea trasladado al distribuidor de motocicletas autorizado más cercano.

Sugerimos contactar a su distribuidor de motocicletas BMW autorizado para secar el cable del acelerador.  Durante la visita, el personal del distribuidor también colocarán una etiqueta de advertencia sobre la conducción en temperaturas bajo cero (o cercanas a este nivel).

Si usted no es el único conductor de este vehículo, notifique a los demás conductores sobre esta importante información.

 

¿Qué hará BMW?

Cuando contemos con una solución, su distribuidor de motocicletas BMW autorizado realizará la reparación en forma gratuita, lo cual debería tomar aproximadamente una hora.

 

¿Qué debo hacer si la información sobre el dueño del scooter es incorrecta?

Puede actualizar los datos de contacto o la información sobre propiedad del scooter completando la tarjeta adjunta prefranqueada. Si el scooter se hubiera vendido a través de leasing, de acuerdo con la ley federal deberá enviar este aviso dentro de diez días al propietario que lo adquirió a través de esta modalidad de compra.
