WARNING
Do not replace the main fuse by
yourself. Have an Authorized
Mazda Dealer perform the
replacement:
Replacing the fuse by yourself is
dangerous because the MAIN fuse
is a high current fuse. Incorrect
replacement could cause an
electrical shock or a short circuit
resulting in a fire.

always be used when you stop on or
near a roadway in an emergency.
The hazard warning lights warn other
drivers that your vehicle is a traffic
hazard and that they must take
extreme caution when near it.
Depress the hazard warning flasher
