Mazda6 fuel pump recall
The recall affects sedan and wagon variants of the Mazda6 sold between last November and the past few days.

An electrical fault that could see the fuel pump stop working has been identified in some models of the Mazda6.

The ACCC is overseeing the recall which affects sedan and wagon versions of the Mazda6 powered by the 2.5 litre petrol engine. The affected vehicles were sold between the 21st of November 2013 and the 2nd October this year.

Due to a programming error, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) may fail to provide an adequate supply of electric power to the fuel pump. The ACCC says this may cause the fuel pump to stop operating, preventing the engine restarting or stalling after initial take off.

If this occurs, the Malfunction Indicator Light on the instrument panel will illuminate.

Mazda Australia will contact all affected consumers by mail and more info is available from Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
