Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Will Follow Global Recall Guidelines If Recall Issued

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has officially stated that they are aware of the recall announcement by Daimler AG. Daimler AG has determined that in certain vehicles which have previously experienced damage, such as being through a flood or been submerged in water (a condition known as ‘hydrolocked engine’), the starting current limiter may experience an overload under certain conditions during the starting procedure.

In this condition, should the driver attempt to start the engine repeatedly despite the engine not cranking, the very high electric current might lead to overheating of the starting current limiter.

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia are awaiting further information from Daimler AG, and will update customers immediately upon receiving the details. They will take all necessary measures in accordance with their stringent global guidelines and procedures, always with the safety and best interests of customers at heart.

In the meantime, should customers have any queries, please call their customer care line, 1-800-88-1133.
