This bulletin applies to 2015 and later BMW 328i vehicles, 2 series, 3 series and 4 series vehicles. The engine may stall right after starting and/or the engine cannot be restarted. One of the following faults will be stored in the DME: FC 118033 (gasoline engines) or FC 2BAB00 (diesel engines). The power supply fuse for the fuel pump control electronics (EKPS) can fail due to an internal control module problem.

Check the fuse for the EKPS, located in the rear fuse carrier. If the fuse is found open or faulty, then check the part number of the EKPS control module. If P/N 16 14 7 447 895 or 16 14 7 450 992 is installed, then the fuse and the EKPS control module need to be replaced together. If the fuse is not faulty, work through the applicable test plan for the fault stored.
