What do you mean by TCM PCM

142,885

A LOOSENING OF THE BOLT CONNECTION. AS IT LOOSENS, AN INCREASE IN ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE AT THIS CABLE CONNECTION IS POSSIBLE AND COULD CAUSE THE CABLE CONNECTION TO OVERHEAT. I never write in all upper case that is pasted, it's just a hold-down bolt and BMW being the superior car company it is issued a voluntarily recall to tighten a single bolt. So in my opinion the answer to your question is no.

Oohh I see. Cut and pasted again POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM)

Yes this recall does not include our VIN though. We have had a lot of power issues

For the life of the car. The ECU/PCM -- computer - rarely fails
