Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 2,563 model year 2018-2020 AMG GLC 63 4MATICs.
The power supply cable on the starter might not have been installed correctly, possibly allowing the cable to chafe against the starter housing and short-circuit.
A power supply cable short-circuit can result in a stall, increasing the risk of a crash. In addition, a short-circuit can increase the risk of a fire.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the starter harness and power supply cable installation, and correct it -- as necessary -- free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 9, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
