The Hazard!

On vehicles with diesel engine and start-stop system of a limited production period the starter motor may be permanently activated because the return spring in the solenoid switch is crooked or broken. As a result, the component can overheat and even a vehicle fire is possible. The affected solenoid switches have to be replaced.

What to do...

To arrange an appointment for your vehicle to be checked, please contact your local dealer.
