The screw connection of a 12V wiring harness of the vehicles equipped with plug-in hybrid traction may have been secured with insufficient torque. As a result, the electrical resistance of the connection could increase, and the temperature may therefore rise in this area, posing a risk of fire.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 10 April 2019 and 11 November 2021.
