Vehicles Affected: Approximately 36,760 model-year 2016 Mazda CX-5 SUVs
The Problem: LED daytime running lights may flicker or fail to illuminate while driving.
Due to an inappropriate material specification of the sealing gasket attached to the LED daytime running light wiring connector, the gasket can release sulfur, which may corrode the LED circuit controlling the lights and flicker or fail to illuminate while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mazda said it is not aware of any related accidents or injuries.
The Fix: A remedy is not yet available.
What Owners Should Do: Mazda will begin notifying owners once a remedy has been developed. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
