The vehicles’ 80-amp fuse may fail causing a loss of drive power

  • Model year 2023-2024 C300s, AMG C43s, S580e’s, S580, Maybach S580s, Maybach S680s, AMG SL43s, AMGSL63s, GLC300s, EQE350s, EQE500s, EQS450s, EQS580s, AMG EQS’s; and

The 80-amp fuses may have been manufactured incorrectly, which can cause them to fail.

Failure of the 80-amp fuse can result in a sudden loss of drive power or a loss of critical safety functions such as the restraint systems or instrument cluster, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

There could also be an increased risk of a fire.

Dealers will replace the main fuse boxes, free of charge.

Owners will be notified of the issue by letter beginning April 16, 2024.
