Mercedes-Benz Recall : Engine May Shut Down Due To ECU Software

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450

If the engine shuts down unintentionally, there may be an increased risk of a crash.

Electrical System — Software

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2016 GLE450 AMG 4Matic Coupe vehicles manufactured December 10, 2014, to June 6, 2016. An error within the engine control unit (ECU) software may allow the engine to shut-down while the vehicle is braking, possibly confusing the driver into thinking the shut-down was planned due to the ECO start/stop function.
