The electrical power bars inside the pre-fuse box in the trunk may not have been secured properly.
Failure to secure the power bars securely can cause higher electrical resistance increasing the risk of a fire. Additionally, an intermittent contact between the power bars could lead to a loss of vehicle functions.
The engine operation, the seat belt functions and the instrument cluster could be impaired, increasing the risk of a crash and injuries.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the pre-fuse box, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin August 15, 2018.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
