Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 6,752 model year 2022 C300s.

The automobile manufacturer said moisture accumulation in the trunk may leak into the signal acquisition module (SAM), causing an electrical short circuit.

Mercedes-Benz also noted this defect could lead to various malfunctions, such as rear exterior lighting failure, unintentional rear seat folding, and rearview camera failure, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Besides, the company disclosed an electrical short circuit might increase the risk of a fire.

As regards what to do in correcting the error, MBUSA said that dealers would install a cover for the SAM free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed November 11, 2022.

Affected vehicle owners may contact MBUSA Customer Service on (800) 367-6372.
