Mercedes-Benz Cars RecalledApr 1, 2005 | AP
DaimlerChrysler AG said Thursday it is recalling some 1.3 million Mercedes-Benz cars worldwide to fix problems with their alternators and batteries.
The German-U.S. auto maker said it will check the voltage regulator in the alternator on six and eight-cylinder models and replace the regulator if needed.
It said it would install battery control software on the E-class and CLS-class models built from January 2002-January 2005. The company also said the braking system on the E, SL and CLS-class made since June 2001 would be updated.
