IS THE RECALL FOR THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER STILL EFFECTIVE FOR MY CAR?
2001 Mercedes Benz S500 • 178,000 miles
The lights on the dash just died out a couple of days ago. My independent mechanic says its the instrument cluster that's dead. I've read about a recall for this item, but don't know if still applies to my car. Can you shed some insight on this? My VIN is WDBNG75J51A167492.

Description: On certain vehicles, the instrument cluster is experiencing electrical malfunctions.
