As the occurrence of such incidents on the engine is very rare, the described issue of the starting current limiter might only occur in very rare cases as well,” Mercedes-Benz SA said.
When you try to start the car numerous times, a high electric current could run through the starting current limiter which causes the engine to overheat and potentially catch alight.
The precautionary safety recall was issued earlier this month after 51 cars had caught alight around the world, but there have been no reported deaths or injuries so far.
The problem occurs in vehicles where the engine has been damaged or when the engine has hydrolocked.
