Hi,

brought my 2013 SLK 350 in for news tires yesterday and the dealer also performed an update on engine electronics.

Recall number 2019040001.

Anybody knows what this is? Surprised to see this on a 5 year old car.

Thanks.

It is fairly normal for firmware to be updated overtime. Whilst I don't know about your specific update my car received several control unit software updates back in May 2017 as follows:


Engine Control Unit Software - Motor electronics MED 177AMG for combustion engine M152
Electric Parking Brake Control Unit Software.
Electronic Stability Program Control Unit Software
Fuel Pump Control Unit Software


I make a point that every time the car goes into the Dealer Workshop I ask them to check that all of the control units software is up to date.


I am sure that my car had already received some software updates in the 5 years prior to my ownership.
