Passenger car – Mazda Tribute
Product description
The recall concerns MAZDA Tribute vehicles, produced from 30 May 2000 through 18 December 2003.
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of fire because the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Module connector may have missing or dislodged wire seals. This can allow contamination to enter the ABS electrical connector and cause corrosion of the electrical terminals. The corrosion gradually may result in an ABS malfunction that causes illuminating the ABS warning indicator lamp, blowing of fuses, and in some rare instances smoking or melting of the electrical connector, and/or fire. This can occur either when the vehicle ignition switch is in the off position or while the vehicle is being operated.
Measures taken
Measures taken by economic operators: Voluntary corrective actions taken by the importer. Press release has been issued.
