2001 Mercedes Benz M Class Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2001
Mercedes Benz M Class automobiles. The affected automobiles were manufactured
between January and February 2001.
Some of these vehicles have an All Activity Module
II (AAM II) with a sub-component that could cause the module to intermittently not
function properly. The AAM II controls a number of systems including the high beam lights,
instrument cluster, door locks, and wiper systems. This condition could cause an
intermittent failure of these systems.
377 automobiles are affected by this recall.
Dealers will replace the AAM II.
The manufacturer has reported that owner
notification began Feb. 16, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
