Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (2019)

Published on 21 March 2020

A defect in the control-unit software of the body control module may cause the rear lights to fail or to be lit too weakly if the light selector switch is operated quickly. This may prevent subsequent traffic from detecting the vehicle, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter models affected by this recall were manufactured between 8 February and 19 June 2019.
