Takata recall was denied replacement after dropping car off at dealership where I had purchased the car new. Car has 85,000 miles. I was called back from dealership service dept telling me that they cannot perform 1317f or 9516e, air bag replacement due to my airbag light being on. Airbag light was not on when dropping vehicle off and not on when picking up vehicle. I notified service adviser that there was no airbag light on before driving away but he said there was nothing he could do saying that the refusal came from corporate. Now if my family were to get injured or killed by this defective airbag after refusal by the dealer, I could have a strong case against them I think. But I would rather have a safe car. Service had offered doing an airbag diagnostic at a charge of $140. 00. Not knowing what the other charges might be to fix light ($1000 computer) and not knowing how accurate the diagnostic will be I was forced to deny the diagnostics.

There are several recalls on this vehicle including air bags. We have made several attempts over the years to get any of these done with zero success. The dealership just keeps telling us to come back. Our air bag light comes on and goes out all the time. The lights fill with water after washing or if it rain causing the headlights to short out and blow the bulbs. The engine rattles everytime you crank the car and then goes away. We have changed the oil regularly and it still does it.

The airbag light has been on for past year. The dealership said they can make it turn off but I�m assuming since the light is on my airbag is disabled and won�t work when and if it needs to.
Takata recall: driver side air bag light is coming on while driving, so far on city streets. Since there was an issue with passenger side air bag, concerned there may be an issue with driver side, as well.
I received the primary notification of safety recall in July 2016. I have not received any more information since then, the air bag indicator pops in the dashboard often and I cannot take my care to the emission test until the problem is corrected.

December 2015 I had my car towed to a Mazda dealership (aaa service said to do so because of the noise and fear the vvt would break while in motion) to replace the vvt (timing chain) and valve cover gaskets - paying out of pocket. As of today, 2/12/16, the same noise, but louder, still occurs when I start the car and drive. The air bag light is on and was on when I took it in. No mention of was made. Also, when I received my receipt, they had the mileage wrong by 20,000 miles (potentially affecting carfax reports) , and indicated on the sheet that other areas such as lights were fine and they were not. They did mention that my turbo may need replacing soon (another consistent complaint). There was a class action suit filed in NJ regarding this and it was thrown out. Why isn't the government doing something about all of these similar complaints? where do I go since I just don't trust Mazda dealerships?.

The air bag light came on suddenly. I put of the vehicle on a few times hoping the light will go off, but it never did. For three days now the air bag light of the driver side has remained alight. Even when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is turned on, the air bag comes on immediately.
Passenger airbag light comes on when the ignition is turned on and stays on. . Indicator stays on whether a passenger is on the seat or not. . This can last for several days and evantually disappears. . This has happen two or three time. . I bought the car 4 months ago.
My airbag randomly comes on without anyone sitting in the seat. I had the car in the shop in June to replace the thermostat , and the part center said the airbag light is on, if you are in a car accident it will not deploy. I personally feel this model on airbags should look into a recall too!.
Air bag light staying on in my truck? ac compressor is defective even after I just had the turbo replace in March . Needs to be a recall on the passenger seat air bags and ac compressor.
We purchased our vehicle new. The passenger side air bag lights up for no reason. It's intermediate. I have taken it into the dealership and they claim there is a known issue however not a recall therefore Mazda will not pay for the expense to repair/fix it. I have asked if the air bag will work if we are in an accident and they cannot say either way. Also our engine light is intermediate as well. I've taken it to repair shops who ran a free diagnostic test which states another known issue with Mazda with the fuel evaporation line. If Mazda is aware of these issues, why don't they repair them at no cost to the owner? does someone have to die first?.
Air bag light comes on and off randomly with or without passenger in seat. Have had so many issues with this 2007 Cx-7 from 2 different complete a/c system rebuilds in first 2 years, belt tensioner pulley, egr valve codes (had to get egr valve cleaned), coolant temp codes (replaced thermostat & temp sensor) and now air bag random light. I am on a Mazda forum and honestly there should be more recalls on this vehicle due to the volume of complaints in several categories. . . Mazda responses to just about everything is to replace something for a minimum $500 up to thousands. . . I am tired of having to deal with Mazda and will never buy another. . . Traded in a 2001 chevy tahoe for Cx-7 with 250,000 mi and only had normal maintenance. The Cx-7 was a bad investment for me. . .
Airbag safety sensors failed in my 2007 Mazda Cx-7. Airbag light started coming on about 2 weeks before took vehicle to dealership. Called dealership ad was told it could be just baggage on passenger side seat and to come in if persists. It persisted and took vehicle in to be inspected. Technicians said sensors underneath front seats failed and needed to be recalibrated. Authorized the repair drivers side seat was recalibrated but passenger side could not. Airbag safety sensors not covered by extended warranty offered by Mazda and Mazda will not fix safety issue because vehicle no longer under manufacturers warranty. Technicians could not give me a reason why the sensors failed and why Mazda does not cover safety items that can save a life.
At about 55,000 miles and only 3 years of usage, my vehicle started making a terrible racket and smell. I opened the hood to see it was a the clutch of the air compressor that had locked up and caused big problems with the belt. Trying to drive the vehicle to get repaired only made the issue worse. I got a brand new air compressor installed and the noise is now gone and the ac is working fine. (after paying approximately $700) however, the air bag light just started flashing and then staying on and it's only a week since the ac repair. I am worried about the safety of the vehicle and if there is a connection between the two issues. I am reading about all sorts of complaints with both issues and I have read a technical service bulletin about the airbags. A recall needs to be completed very quickly before many owners get seriously injured due to these rampant defects with the vehicle.
Passenger airbag light come on as being off when my wife is seated on passenger seat. Dealer fixed it 5 times and works better then before, but still occasionally comes on while driving almost randomly on/off. My wife is petite but weights 105lbs or so. The light should not come on as being off for this weight.
The contact owns a 2008 Mazda cx7. While driving at approximately 50 mph, the air bag light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership to routine maintenance and the dealer turned off the light at that time. The contact then stated that the air bag light illuminated again and the vehicle was taken back to the dealership where the contact was informed that the failure was caused by a loose connection pin. The air bag light illuminated again and the contact had an appointment with the dealer at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 10,000. The current mileage was approximately 46,000.

First the air con compressor went out,now the air bags lights stays on. The engine light is also on. Mazda needs to recall these vehicles. There has been problems with this vehicle from the beginning.
My 2007 Mazda cx7 is equipped with passenger airbag that shuts off when there is no passenger. Most of the time (60% or so) when I am driving with my wife in passenger seat, the passenger airbag off indicator is illuminated. Same with when my wife is driving and I on passenger seat.
