Driving on hwy 41 going South from racine into Chicago area late morning, my son in law was driving going about 55. All the lights on the dash went on! every single one was lit up so he pulled to the side of the road and the car would not shut off, the electrical system was just frozen, things that were on stayed on and the things that had been off would not go on. After approximately 30 of sitting at the side of the road waiting for assistance (it was over 90 degrees that day) I was finally able to shut the car off. After consulting with a mechanic via phone I started the car. It started right up and the only light on was check engine. We drove to our destination, parked the car for the night and the next morning it was like nothing ever happened. No check engine light, not a sign of trouble. We drove home with no issue. I found someone else with the same issue on this website and took that information to the dealership. They found that the ground wire in the front had been painted over at the factory resulting in a faulty connection.

This is the second occurrence of the same issue, but while driving the vehicle at highway speeds, all dash lights illuminated (check engine, turn signals, temp warnings, etc) simultaneously and the information screen displayed an alert "engine inspection required". the incident also resulted in a loss of power steering/heavier-than-normal steering effort and brake warning indications, on the first instance (July 10, 2014), Mazda roadside assistance was contacted and the vehicle was towed to the dealer with no fault/cause found. On the second instance (July 15, 2014), the vehicle was driven directly to the dealership. Technicians were able to diagnose the issue to a loose ground connection in the passenger front fender well.
