Due to inappropriate material, the sealing gasket attached to the wiring connector of the LED running and position lights can release sulfur, corroding the circuit that is controlling the LED lights.
As a result, the circuit may lose continuity causing the lights to flicker or fail to illuminate, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Mazda CX-5 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 11 December 2014 and 8 December 2015.
Passenger cars equipped with LED type headlights. Model series CX-5 (KE); VIN range: JMZ KE**** ** 400014 – 477205.
