An improperly secured electrical wiring harness could cause a loss of drive power

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 5,326 model year 2022-2023 AMG SL55s and AMG SL63s.

The electrical wiring harness for the starter and alternator may not be secured properly, which can result in a short circuit and a loss of drive power or cause the harness to overheat.

A loss of drive power can increase the risk of a crash, and an overheated electrical wiring harness can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Dealers will secure the electrical wiring harness for the starter and alternator free of charge.

Notification letters will be mailed to owners starting December 5, 2023.
