TCS / DSC INDICATOR LIGHT ON WITH DTC C0051:62 / TPMS WARNING LIGHT ON AFTER FLASHING – 2013-2018 Mazda CX-5

NHTSA ID Number: 10162012

Manufacturer Communication Number: 04-003-19-3589a

Summary

Some vehicles may experience the TCS/DSC indicator light and the TPMS warning light both ON with DTC C0051:62 stored in memory. DTC C0051:62 – The difference between the initial learned value of the steering angle (as calculated by each sensor) and the steering angle (as calculated by the steering angle sensor) while driving in a straight line, has exceeded its allowable tolerance (or threshold). NOTE: For vehicles equipped with the Smart City Brake System (SCBS), the master warning light also comes ON with the message “SCBS Inspection Required” in the display. The symptoms may occur when the following conditions are met: After starting the engine, the vehicle is driven backwards while the steering wheel is turned to the left or to the right or going forward over a bump while turning the steering wheel. The vehicle is then driven forward and begins accelerating while the steering wheel is still turned. To eliminate this concern, the DSC HU/CM software has been changed.

RUBBING/CONTACT MARKS ON CONVERTIBLE TOP (TOP FABRIC WITHOUT INNER CLOTH/HEADLINER) – 2016 Mazda MX-5

NHTSA ID Number: 10162015

Manufacturer Communication Number: 09-023-19-3596

Summary

Some vehicles (without inner cloth/headliner) may exhibit rubbing/contact marks on the top fabric of the convertible top around the area as shown. The marks may occur on the right and/or left side(s). This is caused by the top fabric receiving vibration and the stitching line (hard) touching the top fabric while the vehicle is running with the convertible top opened (top fabric folded and piled up). To correct this concern, the link stopper of the convertible top has been changed to adjust the opening angle of the convertible top, thereby decreasing the contact pressure applied to the top fabric when folded and piled up. NOTE: Compared to the top fabric with inner cloth, the top fabric without inner cloth is more likely to have this concern because the folded height is set lower, therefore the top fabric is folded and piled up in more tight condition.
