Recall Alert: 39,600 Mazda B Series Trucks

Mazda has issued a recall for 39,600 Mazda B Series pickup trucks from the 1995-1997 and 2001-2003 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The only pickups being recalled are those equipped with the Texas Instruments speed-control deactivation switch and/or antilock brake system manufactured before Dec. 5, 2002. Part of the cruise control deactivation switch may corrode over time, possibly leaking. This could lead the switch to overheat, which may start a fire under the hood. This could happen even if the engine is not running.

Mazda dealers will install a universal fused jumper harness on the deactivation switch for free. Owners may contact Mazda at 800-222-5500 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.

I love Mazda. They are simply the best.


Same recall as the Ford Ranger one.


Makes me wonder if the 1991-94 Mercury Capri used the same TI switch? The Capri used a Mazda 323 engine. Reason I ask... mine caught fire and then the insurance company accused me of doing it myself. Yeah, right... I fixed the car at my cost and still have the vehicle 200,000 miles later.


Tell you what, Long Beach, Mazda may be the best, but my re-badged B4000 (Ford Ranger with a Mazda grille) would make you cautious about some aspects of their judgment.

Mazda B Series Trucks are one of the most amazing truck i have seen. It has an aura of a true man defining image. need to get out more, as they say, and look at more trucks.

Mazda pickup trucks has features which is great and useful for save the fuels. it giving a good mileage which is perfect for gas ratio. it is mostly used in transport services. i like the collection of mazda series. so keep more information of this.


The ford ranger was the best small truck ever enough said argue if you want but no other truck lasted as long without major changes wish they would come back out with the ford model t truck I would buy tow of them
