Two recalls filed with the NHTSA affect versions of the 3 series, 5 series, X5, X3 and Z3.
The first recall includes upwards of 740,000 thousand vehicles.
It covers a part of the engine that can short circuit and melt which increases the chances of a fire even if the vehicle isn't in use.
BMW says it doesn't know of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
The second recall is for roughly 673,000 thousand vehicles.
It covers an overheating risk due to faulty wiring in the heating and air conditioning system.
