Loose BMW Ground

This bulletin applies to 2013 BMW 320i vehicles produced in Germany up to March 20, 2012, (identified with an “F” in the chassis number; or produced in South Africa up to Oct. 1, 2012), where the engine may not start due to a loose ground.

One or more of the following may occur sporadically:

  • The engine does not start
  • The engine stops running
  • The air conditioning compressor does not turn on
  • Reverse lights do not work
  • The transmission does not shift into gear
  • Various chassis and engine check control messages

The cause may be a loose ground point Z6000*4B on the engine block, near the starter.

Check and tighten the ground point Z6000*4B to 8 Nm. Clear all fault codes that might have been stored if the ground was found to be loose.

Note the location of the potentially loose ground connection on the engine block near the starter.
