Mazda owner unhappy about change in trunk lid


A: There are a number of problems with this particular car that have to do with the trunk. When researching possible solutions, I found everything from a new battery for the remote, to a stretched cable in the trunk, and even a flipped switch in the trunk. However, there is a Mazda Technical Service Bulletin No. 051/10, which addresses this problem. The tech service bulletin gives information on how to use the remote control for the trunk. There is no repair for the issue. It’s all about how you press the buttons on the remote. Ask your Mazda dealer for a copy of this bulletin.

Car Care Tip: Keep all warranty receipts in a safe place. They may be valuable for warranty claims in the future.
