RECALL Subject : Turn Signals do not Cancel Automatically/FMVSS 108

Report Receipt Date: OCT 18, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V753000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 180


Manufacturer: Mazda North American Operations

SUMMARY:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2017 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured August 12, 2016, to September 28, 2016 and equipped with optional accessory fog lights. Due to an incorrect combination switch being installed, the turn signals may not automatically cancel by the rotation of the steering wheel. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
CONSEQUENCE:
A vehicle continuously driven with the turn signal flashing may result in confusion to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the combination switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 0316J.
