What are the defects?
An excessive amount of grease may have been applied to the electrical contacts inside the ignition switch. The grease may carbonise due to a heat from the electric arc generated during switch operation. The carbonised grease may accumulate between the electrical contacts (moving contact and fixed contact), reducing the electrical insulation performance inside the switch.
What are the hazards?
If the vehicle continues to be used in this condition, the path between the electrical contacts may become conductive, causing heat generation and potentially resulting in smoke and in the worst case, a fire.
What should consumers do?
Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail as soon as parts become available to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer for the replacement of the ignition switch at no charge.
Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
