2004 Mazda Mazda3 ProblemsAirbag Warning Light Illuminated
Damaged wiring to the seat belt pre-tensioner sensor may cause the Airbag Warning Light to illuminate.
A Loose rear stabilizer bar link can cause a rattling noise from the rear suspension while driving on rough roads. Our technicians tell us if the rear stabilizer bar and links are not found to be loose, there are updated sway bar bushings available which should correct this problem.
The rear brakes can squeak because the rear brake pad may be contacting the brake rotor. A burr on the backing plate of the brake pad can prevent the pad from seating in the bracket properly causing the contact with the rotor. The backing plate and the pad support hardware can be deburred in the contact areas. Mazda has also released revised brake pads.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 RecallsAirbag Warning Light May Illuminate Due to Faulty Crash Zone Sensor
A crack in the airbag crash zone sensor housing can allow water to enter the sensor, causing illumination of the airbag warning light. As a result, the airbag will not deploy as designed in certain types of frontal crashes, increasing the risk of injury to the driver and front seat passenger. This recall began during October 2004. The Mazda recall number is 2304J.
