    Very happy with Mazda USA customer service. Earlier this year, they covered the entire cost of a LED headlight module replacement (for DRL flickering) outside of warranty after I called them.

    Happy with service, but worried things are breaking one after other..
    If I were you Id also mention the the TSB R052/16C and try to get revised rear calipers. The out-of-tolerance calipers on your 2016 CX-5 from factory will cause EPB dragging issue and may even lock up your rear brakes without knowing. Print the TSB out and talk to your dealer. Again, EPB control module is a software device and it itself rarely causes any EPB issues unless the programming has major flaws.

    Thank you. I have printed it already and will be taking it to dealership tomorrow.

    Please let me know if your parking brake malfunction issue was resolved and if so, I appreciate knowing what was replaced. My 2016 CX5 Touring has been doing the same thing. I press the ignition button, the physical parking brake light flashes, and I get both a red flashing brake light and a steady "P" light in the instrumentation cluster. This seems to happen when the vehicle has been sitting idle overnight, no matter if its freezing temperatures or 60 degrees outside. I had the front brake pads and routers replaced thinking that might solve the issue. Nope. Thanks!

    Congrats on getting Mazda to cover most of the costs for your repair. Now that you have a working parking brake I would suggest that you use it. There's a reason for having a parking brake on these cars, on all cars actually.
