Certain B series trucks from the 1995-1997 and 2001-2003 model years are being recalled by Mazda.
According to the recall, trucks equipped with a Texas Instruments speed control deactivation switch (SCDS) and/or anti-lock brake system (ABS) manufactured on or before December 5, 2002, may encounter a vehicle fire if the switch deteriorates and leaks. The fires can occur even when the engine is not running.
Mazda will begin notifying owners of the recall on November 13, 2009. Consumers will be advised to bring their vehicles to a dealership to have a universal fused jumper harness installed on the cruise control switch, free of charge.
