Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 38 model year 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters.

A cable duct may drop out of place due to unlatched engagement hooks inside the battery case. This may cause the starter-generator wiring harness to chafe against the transmission carrier, which could result in an electrical short circuit.

An electrical short can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Dealers will replace the engagement hooks on the affected cable duct with expanding rivets free of charge.

Owners may contact DVUSA's customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3KABKAN.
