has announced that it is recalling 1,540 examples of its 2009 and 2010 X5 xDrive35d

, the model's fuel filter heater, which warms up the diesel fuel at low outside temperatures, can experience an electrical overload condition that may cause it to become permanently activated. This means the fuel filter heater could remain activated even when the ignition is off, which could lead to a dead battery. It could also lead to overheating, possibly resulting in a fire.
This recall is expected to begin later this month. Scroll down
