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.
