Arrow 2018 Mazda3, Hatchback, Sport (basic)-Smart Brake Support


Hi All,
New owner to a 2018 Mazda3 (Dec 21, 2018); driving a manual 6 spd Sport basic and it had 1300 miles now. Twice I've seen this symbol (see attachment extracted from owner's manual), SBS illuminated in amber on the dashboard. I went to the owner's manual for reference check, it states red flashing SBS is operating, amber SBS is malfunction. Wondering if any owners out there have any thoughts on this? thanks

It may appear in orange if there is a Malfunction or obstruction of the Front Sensing Camera FSC, this can be caused by,

1: extreme temperatures, ie very cold/freezing or very hot ie over 40C / 105F
2: Condensation or ice on windscreen.
3: Very dirty windscreen.
4: FSC internal malfunction.

If in doubt book it in with your Local Mazda Dealership.

That makes sense because both alerts illuminated during driven in cold temperatures in the evening. Appreciate the tips and hints, thanks.
