1703 Mazda BT-50 (TF) 1.9 ltr models with a year range of 2021 – 2023 have been recalled.

Due to a software issue within the Body Control Module, the parking lamps and number plate lamp may not illuminate when the vehicle is travelling below the speed of 10 kilometres per hour.

If the vehicle’s lights do not work as intended, other road users may not be able to identify the vehicle in parked position and when driven at night. This could lead to an increased risk of accident, resulting in serious injury and/or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

When parts are available, owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Mazda Australia to schedule an appointment with their preferred Mazda dealer to replace the body control module, free of charge.
