Mercedes-Benz USA announced over the weekend that it’s recalling 1.29 million vehicles sold between 2016 and 2021 due to a software problem.
As Reuters reports, Mercedes discovered that when a crash occurs the power supply to an affected vehicle’s communication module can suffer a “temporary collapse.” The knock-on effect being the current position of the vehicle can be reportedly incorrectly during an emergency call. The manual and automatic emergency call features of these vehicles still functions, but they are of little use if emergency services are rushing to the wrong location.
The vehicles covered in the recall include 2016-2021 models of the CLA-Class, GLA-Class, GLE-Class, GLS-Class, SLC-Class, A-Class, GT-Class, C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, CLS-Class, SL-Class, B-Class, GLB-Class, GLC-Class, and G-Class.
The good news is, Mercedes believes the software fault has not led to any damage or personal injury occurring. The fix is also relatively simple, with a software update required which can be carried out by one of Mercedes’ dealers or over-the-air depending on the vehicle.
To find out if your Mercedes is included in this recall, head on over to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (HNTSA) recalls page and enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your vehicle. Instructions on where to locate the VIN on your vehicle are also provided on that page.
