“Due to a manufacturing defect, the wiring harness of the steering control unit may be damaged,” Mercedes-Benz says in its recall notice.
“The damage can allow water or moisture into the wiring harness, which can cause a short circuit, resulting in a loss of electric power steering.
“A failure of the electric power steering would be indicated by a corresponding warning message in the instrument panel.”
If a short circuit occurs, there’s a risk power steering assistance will be lost. There’s also a risk of vehicle fire.
