On my way to work this morning, I was greeted with a nice yellow triangle with an exclamation point on my instrument cluster. I opened the maintenance app in the infotainment system, and there was a warning that said "i-ELOOP system malfunction". When I switched over to the i-ELOOP status monitor it was showing the recharge animation continuously, however the capacitor indicator remained at a discharged state. I called my service department, and it is the first time they have heard of this situation. I'm taking it in for service in the morning. I'm bummed out, because I only have 2000 miles on the vehicle. I really hope it is minor. As a side note, the vehicle appears to function normally. The service department was not too concerned about me driving it.

They really did seem clueless. I saw this recall announcement. The strange thing is that my manufacturer date is outside of the dates listed.

The service department ran diagnostics, and were unable to determine the cause. They reset the system, and the error cleared. Hope it was just a fluke.

This is serious, but Mazda acted fast. Same as GM and the ignition issue, loss of power can be deadly esp on a freeway.

i DO not drive in the rain PERIOD. This friday i will get the update. It will ignore the capacitor if it fall to low and relies on the alternator 100%.

I recently received the same error message. My $500 battery is only 3 months old and now this. Anyone got any better information on this or is it just another method for Mazda to get me into the dealership for a $200 service call?
