The passenger airbag deactivation indicator light may turn off, even though the passenger airbag is deactivated. In addition, the seatbelt status indicators of the front and rear passenger seats may turn off, even though the seatbelts are unfastened. False airbag and/or seatbelt indications may cause improper securing of the passengers, increasing the risk of injuries in the event of an accident.
The Mazda 3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 6 November 2018 and 7 March 2019.
