Hello,

I have a 2002 S500. While I was driving yesterday my dashboard lights went out suddenly. Any idea what went wrong? Thank you.

There is an Instrument Cluster recall. I think your eligible.

NHTSA Recall Campaign Number: 06V028000

Component: INTERIOR LIGHTING

Details: ON CERTAIN VEHICLES, THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER IS EXPERIENCING ELECTRICAL MALFUNCTIONS. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER CONTAINS GAUGES AND INDICATORS THAT MUST BE ILLUMINATED WHENEVER THE VEHICLE IS IN OPERATION.

Consequence: DUE TO INADEQUATE ILLUMINATION, THE DRIVER WILL BE UNABLE TO READ THE GAUGES AND INDICATORS, SUCH AS THE SPEEDOMETER, WHICH COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Corrective Action: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER MODULES. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON JUNE 10, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MERCEDES-BENZ AT 1-800-367-6372.

Units Potentially Affected: 36911

Recall Initiated By: ODI
Date added to NHTSA datbase: 02/02/2006
Internal use: 2/2/2006
