The wiring harnesses for the front seats on affected vans may have been routed incorrectly and could become jammed and damaged in the swivel seat frames, NHTSA said. If the wiring harness is damaged, the side airbag within the seat may deploy inadvertently or not deploy as designed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.
Daimler Vans USA is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the wire harness routing for both front seats and repair the wiring and add clips or cable ties as needed, free of charge.
This recall began in July 2020.
