BEIJING (AP) — China’s national product safety agency says automaker BMW is recalling 143,000 cars to replace a part in its electrical system.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China said Monday a seal in the electrical system might not fit properly.

It said that in extreme cases, such as driving through deep water, that could lead to corrosion and a power failure.

The agency said the recall applies to vehicles made between Aug. 24, 2009 and Aug. 31, 2012 by BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., the German automaker’s local joint venture.
