Problem Description

An incorrectly installed wiring harness may jam between the stop-lamp switch and the brake lever. This could lead to misinterpretation of the stop-lamp switch status. As a result, the stop-lamp may potentially be permanently illuminated and assistance systems could indicate malfunctions. In addition, the risk that the vehicle may roll away cannot be ruled out in all circumstances.

The vehicles affected were manufactured between 13. 12. 2017 – 1. 8. 2018.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a 17 characters code that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

You should make contact with a Mercedes Benz dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.
