Manufacturer Daimler Vans USA, LLC


Potential Number of Units Affected 38

Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vehicles. A cable duct may drop out of place due to unlatched engagement hooks inside the battery case.
This may cause the starter-generator wiring harness to chafe against the transmission carrier, which could result in an electrical short-circuit.

Dealers will replace the engagement hooks on the affected cable duct with expanding rivets, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on November 3, 2021.
Owners may contact DVUSA’s customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA’s number for this recall is VS3KABKAN.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety
Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
