Mercedes-Benz Black

The Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® system automatically activates if an accident is about to happen.

Learn more about this innovative safety system with the Mercedes-Benz service experts near Rye at Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich.

What Does the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Do?


If your Mercedes-Benz car senses that an accident is going to take place, the PRESAFE® system will kick in. It takes the steps below to protect you from harm:

  • The front head restraints adjust for maximum crash protection by moving to the best position for preventing passenger injuries.
  • The windows and sunroof close if a rollover is possible to prevent debris from entering the cabin.
  • Increased tension in the front safety belts protects occupants from injury.

What is PRESAFE® Sound?

Some Mercedes-Benz vehicles come equipped with the PRESAFE® addition PRESAFE® Sound. This safety feature emits a specific “pink noise” that works within the inner ear to cause a reaction protecting your hearing from loud noises.

What Does “PRESAFE® Functions Limited” Mean?

If you see “PRESAFE® Functions Limited” displayed, that means your Mercedes-Benz vehicle may need service. This message will be shown on the vehicle’s information panel located behind the steering wheel. Typically, it means a sensor needs cleaning or adjusted. Schedule your service appointment today and have one of our factory-certified technicians take a look.

What does “PRESAFE® Inoperative” Mean?

You may eventually see the message “PRESAFE® Inoperative” in your Mercedes-Benz. As one recent owner’s manual clarifies—on page 382—this message is your cue to pay a visit to our service center. So, although there is no single, clear “PRESAFE® Inoperative” meaning, your Mercedes-Benz should definitely be inspected at the earliest opportunity.

We know how frustrating it may be if you see PRESAFE® Inoperative in your C 250 or your E 350, but our advanced diagnostic systems can get an answer for you right away. PRESAFE® is a complex system that affects numerous different components of your vehicle, so don’t wait to take a closer look.
