Arrow BMW recalling sedans, X5 sport-utility vehicle

Bayerische Motoren Werke AG is recalling 29,250 5 Series and 6 Series sedans and X5 sport-utility vehicles to fix a static electricity problem that can cause their V-8 engines to stall.

The recall, affecting 2006 and 2007 models, was announced Friday by the Washington-based National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on its Web site.

The problem involves the engine's electronic control unit, when temperatures are below freezing and humidity is low, according to a NHTSA defect report. Under those conditions, an electrostatic discharge can occur at pipes that deliver fuel to the engine's injectors, causing the control unit to malfunction.

Dealers will attach grounding cables in the engine compartment free of charge, according to the document. Vehicles affected are the 550I and 650I from model years 2006 and 2007, and the X5 from 2007.
