Descriptive Information : Certain MY 2017 Mazda6 vehicles equipped with optional accessory fog lamps can

Description of Noncompliance :
Description of the
Noncompliance :
FMVSS 108 S9.1.1 requires that the turn signal operating unit installed on
passenger cars must be self-canceling by steering wheel rotation and capable of
cancellation by a manually operated control. On certain MY 2017 Mazda6
vehicles, self-cancellation by steering wheel rotation may be inoperative,
therefore, non-conformance occurs to the requirement of FMVSS 108 S9.1.1.
The turn signal function, however, can be canceled by manual operation.
FMVSS 1 : 108 - Lamps, reflective devices, and assoc. Equipment
Description of the Safety Risk : A vehicle continuously driven with the turn signal “on” may result in
confusion to other drivers and potential obstruction of traffic.
Description of the Cause : Installation of optional accessory fog lamps requires a fog lamp kit and, also, a
combination switch compatible with MY 2017 Mazda6 vehicles. Due to
incorrect accessory parts instructions, an incompatible combination switch
may be installed on MY 2017 Mazda6 vehicles causing the turn signals selfcancellation system to become inoperative with steering wheel rotation.

Chronology :
(September 29, 2016); Field information was reported of inoperative turn signals self-cancellation on MY 2017
Mazda6 vehicles during pre-delivery inspections at a dealer. Mazda began an investigation.
(October 11, 2016); Based on investigation results, Mazda determined the optional accessory fog lamps had
incorrect parts instructions and that installations were performed at Mazda’s port facilities on MY 2017
Mazda6 vehicles. The optional accessory fog lamp is also available for dealer installation, however, Mazda
confirmed that no kits were installed in the field. Due to potential non-compliance of FMVSS 108 Section 9.1.1
with inoperative turn signal self-cancellation, Mazda decided to conduct a non-compliance recall on certain MY
2017 Mazda6 vehicles equipped with optional accessory fog lamps. As of October 10, 2016, Mazda is not aware
of any accidents or injuries caused by this issue.
Description of Remedy :
Description of Remedy Program : Owners of record will be notified of this issue and instructed to take their
vehicles to a Mazda dealer for repair. The dealer will replace the
combination switch with a correct one. The repair will be performed free
