Some 2018-2020 Mazda CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3 vehicles may have the check engine light on with DTC P0524:00 or P055F:00 stored in memory.

Some 2018-2020 Mazda CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3 vehicles may have the check engine light on with DTC P0524:00 or P055F:00 stored in memory.

Contamination in the engine oil may cause the engine oil solenoid valve to become stuck, resulting in improper operation of the oil pump and improper oil pressure. The control software of the PCM has been modified to eliminate this concern.

In addition, the production process has been modified to reduce contamination in the engine oil solenoid valve, oil pump, spacer and oil filter.

Replace the engine oil solenoid valve, engine oil and oil filter.

Reprogram the PCM with Mazda Modular Diagnostic System (M-MDS) according to 2018-2020 CX-5 and Mazda6: IDS PCM Reprogramming Procedure using IDS 128.06 or later.
