I had the same message on my display. It disappeared by itself after couple of days. Called the dealership and they said it may have been be due to a low battery. The car was still new, and I'd done a lot of urban driving, so possibly made sense. Maybe take it on a long drive. Hopefully it goes away, else take it to the dealership I'd say. Good luck!

I have just had my CPU updated after the battery was continually going flat, which often also showed this message. The dealer changed the battery for a new one, but the problem continued and was so bad I had to purchase a jump starter battery pack. After complaining twice to Mazda Head Office, they finally contacted my dealer and instructed them to update the CPU with brand new software just released, so far so good no flat battery after four days, but the car does not seem the same, the engine now appears to have more acceleration noise and it is also hanging onto gears for a longer period, similar to what happens when you engage the auto Sport mode.

Not sure what caused it but this afternoon when I started it the message was gone. This was not battery related as I have no issues with the battery...

Many thanks

infotainment 10047; although the CPU and other components are updated in a different way than the infotainment and using different files. Updating the infotainment, doesn't mean and updated cpu/ecu/whatever.

remember that your cx-30 in Malta should have been recalled to update the SBS firmware version due to 'sudden braking'

Yes you are correct, they are different updates and as mentioned frequently on this forum 1047 is the latest Infotainment firmware. I cannot find details relating to the CPU update which Mazda UK organised via my dealer due to my battery continually draining overnight, which affected a number of early built cars, mine included.

I have just bought a CX 30 had it 2 days and tried to open door today , not working .When i tried to start engine nothing but all the icons on dash started to flash on and off . Car only done 900 miles. Was told it could be 18v battery that was flat and so takes charge from car battery. Put Car battery on charge for 1 hour now it will start, don't know how battery is flat as i did 120 miles 2 days ago. Going into garage tomorrow to see why

See my earlier comment regarding the flat battery issues. "Topper" my CX30 had the same symptoms as yours and after so many calls to Mazda Breakdown I had to purchase a battery jump starter as it could go flat at any time. After complaints Mazda UK had my car in as they are aware of the problem.
So far so good, since the update I have had no problems with the battery drain, I would suggest you contact Mazda direct who will instruct your dealer for this update.

I just had the same issue with my CX-30. I’ve had it in the dealership twice for the same issue. The first time, they said they got a code to pop up (because all mechanical fixes are electronic) and it was P05A0:00, which I believe is an active grill error. They updated my computer software and I went on my way only to have the same thing happen the very next day. This time it happened when I started my engine after it sat out in the hot sun for several hours. The service personnel theorized that it was the sun hitting the sensor “the right way” that made it go off. I asked, “So, every time I park in the hot sun I’m going to get the system failure message?” They did not care for that question because they simply don’t know why it is happening. Ideas, anyone? Thanks!

Here's an update, which KILLS me! So I had to take the car in for a THIRD time for this " Vehicle system malfunction. Have the vehicle inspected" error code. They told me to take pictures of the code just in case it disappeared which it didn't thank goodness. I took four 30 second videos over the course of four days and made a video and attached that to my service request. This time, they found what they said was the problem: a rock stuck in just the right spot to hold open a vent that feeds out to a sensor. This vent opens and closes with heat and couldn't because the rock was caught in it. I was irritated because the service technician says it was easily observable. They had relied before that the previous two times on just the computer to diagnose the problem.

I am happy they figured it out for you Hasu. You are correct that they really on the computers to fix our car issues, there isn't much of an observation going on when it comes to the individual diagnosis from the mechanics. Everything is technology based these days and that's not a good thing.

Good that you've had this resolved, @Hasu Just goes to show that computers and diagnoses are not the be all and end all of mechanics and cars.
