LONDON -- BMW is expanding a recall of vehicles in Britain by 88,000 cars to a total of 390,000. The move comes in the wake of a BBC investigation that found some vehicles could cut out completely while being driven.
"BMW has chosen to expand on its existing battery connector recall by also replacing the blower-regulator wiring harness on affected 3-series models," the German carmaker said on Friday.
"This involves replacing two wiring connections on the cars already affected and recalling an additional 88,000 cars in the UK."
The initial recall was launched earlier this month.
