THE FOLLOWING WARNING AND WARNING LIGHTS BEGAN AROUND 34,980 MILES ON MY 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 GRAND TOURING 2.5L SKYACTIV-G WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE INTERSTATE: MASTER WARNING LIGHT, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, POWER STEERING, KEYLESS SYSTEM MALFUNCTION, SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT MALFUNCTION, FORWARD SCBS DISABLED, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, TCS/DSC INDICATOR LIGHT, TCS OFF INDICATOR LIGHT, BLIND SPOT MONITORING (BSM) OFF INDICATION, BRAKE SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT, ABS WARNING LIGHT, ELECTRIC BRAKE WARNING LIGHT, AIR BAG/FRONT SEAT BELT PRETENSIONER SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT, TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT, LED HEADLIGHT WARNING LIGHT, AND THE SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK. THE VEHICLE TAKES SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO TURN OFF. USING THE LEFT BLINKER WILL CAUSE THE VEHICLES POWER TO RESTART AND YES, WHILE DRIVING! THIS STARTED NOVEMBER 14, 2020 AND WHEN I NOTIFIED MAZDA, THEY DID NOT SEEM CONCERNED AND A COUPLE DAYS LATER THE LIGHT WERE NO LONGER THERE. THIS OCCURRED AGAIN DECEMBER 15, 2020 AND MARCH 5, 2021 WHEN I DECIDED MAZDA NEEDS TO RUN A DIAGNOSIS BECAUSE CLEARLY SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT. MY DEALERSHIP INSISTED IT WAS MY BATTERY (BASICALLY THE ONLY WARNING LIGHT NOT ON) AND MY REAR BRAKE PADS. THEN WHEN THIS DID NOT CORRECT THE ISSUE, THEY SAID CORROSION NEEDED TO BE CLEANED WHICH WAS NOT SHOWN IN THE VEHICLE INSPECTION VIDEO. ALSO, MY CAR WAS JUST SERVICED AT MY MAZDA DEALERSHIP JULY 2020 WITH 33,706 MILES. SEPTEMBER 2020 MY VEHICLE WAS PARKED AND I RETURNED TO A LARGE CRACK ON THE DRIVER SIDE. AROUND 25,000 THE TIRED NEEDED TO BE REPLACED, NOW AT 36,666 MILES TIRE THREAD DEPTH IS IN THE YELLOW' MY VEHICLE ALIGNMENT HAS ZERO ISSUES AND MY MAZDA DEALERSHIP IS THE ONLY ONE WHO ROTATES THE TIRES (OR SUPPOSE TO).
Horn failed intermittently starting after odometer hit 36000 miles and when brought in for regular maintenance it passed all checks; may 2020 while driving when steering wheel horn was pressed the horn sort of? Whined? In august, while driving when horn was pressed it would whine and done it smelled like something burning; now, if you press horn it doesn? T work but it smells like like something is burning like a cigarette smoldering( there is clearly something wrong with euth the steering or electrical relay sometimes. Mazda won? T assist with this issue saying nothing is wrong - this is a safety issue cause without a horn a car will not pass a safety inspection.
As i was driving downhill with minimal snow on the ground, i tapped my brakes about 7 times before they locked up. I went to turn to stay on the road and the steering wheel wouldn't budge causing me to go off the road, into an embankment. Vehicle was going about 5-10mph when this occured on a city street.
While driving my 2015 mazda 6 gt, with 40,0000 miles on it, on a main local road, with a max speed limit requirement of 45 mph, i attempted to turn into the right turn lane at a speed of approx 35 mph, while lightly depressing the brake. As i began to turn, the steering just locked up, and the power steering stopped working. A few dashboard lights also came on at the same time.. One said power steering malfunction, the other was a red hazard symbol, and i don't specifically recall the other. I finally shut the car off after a few minutes. When i restarted the car, after several seconds the wheel regained mobility and the dashboard lights went off. I carefully and slowly drove my car home, aprrox 2 miles from where it happened. I haven't driven the car since, due to fear of it happening again. I was almost rear ended twice when it happened.
My new 2020 mazda 3 premium with 1,177 miles suddenly took complete control of steering my car. Driving 65-70 mph on a 3 lane straight highway on a clear day, with light traffic, i moved one lane to my left, and the car took over the steering, pulling my car out of the left lane nearly missing the center cement divider, then darting back across my lane and halfway into the lane to my right,then dashing back to the cement median. I am unaware of how many times the back and forth occurred, i tried to slow the car down to no avail. The car was moving fast, and the pattern the car moved in was very precise, as if the car knew not to hit the median and go further into the lane to my right. Finally the car stopped steering itself, and i was able to exit the highway. My car was not damaged. I hit my head twice on the drives side door. I did not require medical assistance.
