Reprogramming Mazda to Fix Issues

Some owners of 2012-2014 Mazda3, 2013-2015 CX-5 and 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles (all equipped with SKYACTIV-G) may complain about one of the following symptoms when the vehicle is stopped and the transmission in the D range:

- An intermittent high engine idle speed

- An intermittent engagement shock

- An intermittent forward lurch

These conditions may occur when the driver depresses the brake pedal and makes contact with the throttle pedal at the same time.

Verify the complaint. Reboot the IDS to clear memory before reprogramming. Using IDS software 89.03 or later, reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration following the module reprogramming procedure.
