    Bad RBCM confirmed. This un-fused module definitely is a bad design by Mazda. I think it went bad by itself after about 3 years is not a good indicator of quality product either. LED or incandescent, it shouldn't matter. In fact, using LED should draw less current and should be able to prolong the lifecycle of the RBCM.

    I agree I should be able to use LED. I'll probably throw an inline fuse in there once the 3/36 warranty is up in a couple months.

    LED with resistor should draw the same current, no? Otherwise will flicker.

    For turn signals either the older mechanical flasher relay or newer electronic flasher "relay" needs the proper impedance to make on/off cycle work correctly with designed frequency. If the relay designed for incandescent bulb which has lower impedance is now connected to the LEDs, parallel low-ohm resisters are needed to decrease impedance for LEDs in order to match the impedance of incandescent bulbs to keep the on/off frequency from the relay the same.

    I've got a working cargo light now. Dealership treated me well as usual. Kudos... Everett Mazda :-)

    They gave me a '17 Mazda 3 for the day. It was a nice drive.
