Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd — Mercedes-Benz CLS Class MY2018-2019
What are the defects?
The electric line for the power supply of the coolant pump may make contact with the engine fan, causing damage.
What are the hazards?
This may lead to a malfunction of the coolant pump or a deactivation of the 48V on-board electrical system, potentially causing:
- the engine to stall due to extremely high coolant temperature
- the engine to not restart after the shut-off by the ECO start/stop or "glide mode" functions.
In the above cases, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of an accident and injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users. In the event of a serious accident this may result in death.
