TO:

ALL MERCEDES-BENZ CENTERS

SUBJECT:

Replace Electronic Ignition Switch

This Service Campaign has been initiated because Daimler AG (DAG), the manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, has determined that due to a

supplier process issue the electronic ignition switch (EIS) does not correspond to specification which may lead to a no start condition when turning

the ignition key.

To correct this condition, an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer will replace the electronic ignition switch (EIS) at the next workshop visit.

A sample copy of a letter which owners of the affected vehicles will receive is included.

Prior to performing this Service Campaign:

Approximately 11,067 vehicles are affected.
