Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 56,534 model year 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and Freightliner Sprinters.
The retaining washer and bolt that connect the brake pedal to the bearing block, may come loose and detach. This could cause the brake lights to stay illuminated, even when the brake pedal is not pressed.
Malfunctioning brake lights can fail to alert other motorists of the driver's intention, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
The remedy is currently under development.
The recall is expected to begin April 19, 2021.
Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3BREBOL.
