Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 2,101 model year 2020 CLA250s, CLA250 4MATICs & CLA35 AMG 4MATICs; model year 2020-2021 GLE350s, GLE350 4MATICs, GLE450 4MATICs, GLS450 4MATICs & GLS580 4MATICs; and model year 2021 GLE53 AMG Coupes, GLE63S AMG 4MATICs, GLS63 AMG 4MATICs & Maybach GLS600 4MATICs.
The instrument cluster software may deactivate the illumination of certain interior switches (switch bar, overhead control unit, steering wheel) if the hazard lights are turned on and the ignition switch is in the 'off' position.
If the interior switches are not illuminated, they may be more difficult to find and operate, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster software free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 14, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
