Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Recalls
During a crash where air bags are triggered to protect occupants, the passenger seat air bag may not deploy properly, increasing risk of injury.
The occupant detection system that determines if a passenger is sitting in the front seat so that the air bag will deploy in an accident may not work properly. As a result, the air bag may be unintentionally be shut off.
There are several computers in the vehicle and each computer requires proper software to operate the each vehicle system. One particular software calibration on this vehicle was erroneous from the factory and could keep the fuel system powered after an accident. This can cause fuel to continue to flow even after an accident.
An internal fault with the module that controls certain vehicle functions may cause it to fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
The sensotronic brake control (SCB) system may default to the basic hydraulic mode. Greater pedal pressure and longer pedal travel will be required when trying to stop the vehicle.
