Mazda Recalls Cars for Wiring Issues

Mazda Recalls Cars for Wiring Issues Featured

Mazda North American Operations is recalling 57,878 2015-16 Mazda6 vehicles. Debris from the welding process during manufacturing of the front passenger seat frame may damage the occupant classification system (OCS) wiring.
If the wiring becomes damaged, there may be a loss of power steering assist and the deactivation of the passenger air bag, increasing the risk of a crash and the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will attach a protective pad on the seat frame. If the OCS harness is damaged, insulating tape will be applied to the harness. These repairs will be performed free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin Sept. 29. Mazda's number for this recall is 1517H.
