A software calibration number (scn) coding received on the affected vehicles during a recent workshop visit was incorrect. Depending on the model year and model affected, the results of an incorrect scn coding can affect a number of vehicle safety and emission functions including the following types of functions: (1) the fuel gauge readings may be incorrect; (2) a stuck fuel-level sensor may not be displayed in the instrument cluster; (3) the obd system may cause the check engine light to illuminate incorrectly; and, (4) the speedometer may be out of tolerance.

    Consequence: In the event of a vehicle crash, the electrical fuel pump may not receive a crash signal that is required for the fuel pump to disconnect and prevent future fuel delivery as designed.

    Actions: Dealers will recode the scn free of charge. The recall began on August 30, 2008. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V303000 »

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 20, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 61,000

    Summary: Certain passenger vehicles equipped with sport model steering wheels fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "occupant crash protection." In certain low risk air bag deployment tests conducted by NHTSA, using an out-of-position unbelted 5th percentile female crash test dummy, irregularities were demonstrated indicating that occupants may not be properly protected in a crash.

    Consequence: In the event of a crash, an occupant may not be properly restrained which could result in injuries.

    Actions: Dealers will install a new air bag inflator module free of charge. The recall began on March 15, 2006. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V560000 »

  3. 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS500 SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #05V133000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 01, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 204,000

    Summary: On certain vehicles, the sensotronic brake control (sbc) system may prematurely shift to the hydraulic back-up function mode, due to deterioration of the wiring harness connection, or due to premature failure of the hydraulic pump.

    Consequence: In the hydraulic back-up mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, although greater brake pedal pressure is required and the brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer.

    Actions: Dealers will install a bracket and replacement ground wire to the sbc pump unit on all vehicles free of charge. Additionally dealers will inspect and replace the sbc pump unit in sl vehicles produced during a limited production period. The recall began on August 8, 2005.
