Mercedes-Benz is recalling thousands of its crossovers in the United States due to a backlight issue. Information about starting a service company was seen on the United States Environmental Agency (NHTSA) website along with a description of the problem

It is reported that the additional glowing star logo of Mercedes-Benz, which is located on the false radiator grille, is to blame for the next recall. The issue prompted the automaker to recall a total of 12,799 GLE-Class and GLS-Class crossovers produced between December 8, 2018 and February 2, 2020.

According to the published document, the electrical ground connection with the star logo may not be properly installed.

This can affect the operation of other components that have the same ground connection, such as the power steering control unit, wiper motor and / or left headlight. To fix this, dealerships will have to move the grounding point and reconnect.

Fortunately, the accidents that were caused by this malfunction are not indicated. The document also says that the problem was known last year, and then an investigation was carried out. However, the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the process due to staff layoffs.

Most of all, the Mercedes GLE-Class suffers from this defect. A total of 9,642 GLEs are part of the recall, including the GLE350, GLE450 and GLE580 trim levels. We are talking about versions of the 2020 model year crossover. On the other hand, the mentioned recall includes a total of 3,157 GLS-class units.
