The problem: In vehicles with a gate-type shifter, pressing the Start/Stop button may not turn off the ignition. Even if the shift lever is in Park and the engine shuts off, the ignition may stay on. This may be caused by a worn out ignition switch unit.
Vehicles affected by service bulletin:
- 2013 Mazda CX-5
- 2014 Mazda CX-5

Corrective action: Dealers will replace the ignition switch with an updated unit.
