Wiring for the blower motor may overheat, causing a fire

Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 52,993 model year 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter VS30s and Freightliner Sprinter VS30s.

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) blower motor circuit may be inadequate, which can allow the wiring harness to overheat.

A wiring harness that overheats increases the risk of a fire.

What to do

Owners should operate the HVAC front blower in manual (not automatic) mode whenever the engine is on. Do not use the maximum blower or lowest/highest temperature settings until the remedy is performed.

Dealers will relocate and replace the fuse and wiring harness free of charge.

Owner notification letters should go into the mail April 14, 2023.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is 8297010.
