This bulletin applies to 2016 BMW 2 Series, 3 Series and 4 Series vehicles produced from July 1, 2015, through Jan. 22, 2016. The engine may stall right after starting, and/or the engine cannot be started. One of the following faults will be stored in the DME:
- Gasoline engines: FC 11B033

The cause: The power supply fuse for the fuel pump control electronics (EKPS) can fail due to an internal control module problem.

If the fuse is found open or faulty, check the part number of the EKPS control module. If P/N 16 14 7 447 895 or P/N 16 14 7 450 992 is installed, then the fuse and the EKPD control module need to be replaced together. Refer to ETK using the VIN for the fuel pump control unit P/N.
