S Class C217 S500 Problems, Faults and Recalls

  • R/2015/196 - Front Seat Belts May Not Perform As Intended - The front seat belts may have been wrongly installed and may not fully perform as intended.
  • R/2015/232 - Auto Stop/start May Shutdown Without Warning - Incorrect software may have been installed during manufacture. This may cause erratic idling when coming to a halt and the engine may shut down. Consequently the auto start/stop may not operate as intended.
  • R/2015/247 - Stop Start Engine May Not Restart - The excess length of the wiring harness to the engine control unit could result in a faulty camshaft signal. This faulty camshaft signal may lead to an unintentional cancellation of the automatic starting procedure after automatic engine stop of the automatic start/stop system. In the event of a faulty camshaft signal the engine would not restart as expected following the stop procedure but can be manually restarted immediately by engaging the transmission selector lever position ?N? or ?D? and by operating the ignition key or the start button (with keyless go). Depending on the traffic situation however an increased accident hazard could result.
