Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 493 model year 2018-2021 E63S AMGs, E63S AMG Wagons, and model year 2019-2021 AMG GT63 4-door, & AMG GT63S 4-door vehicles.
The starter motor positive cable may not have been installed correctly, potentially allowing the power supply harness wires to chafe.
Damaged wires may cause a short circuit and result in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
A short circuit can also increase the risk of a fire.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- as necessary -- correct the screw connections and position of the positive cable free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 25, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
