Owners of 2007-10 Mazda CX-9 SUVs may complain that the front and/or rear blower motor continues to run after the ignition key is switched off.
According to Mazda, the problem usually comes and goes and is due to the blower motor relay contacts intermittently sticking.
Replacing both the front and rear blower motor relays with a new and improved relay, part No. G115-67-730, should eliminate the trouble immediately.
For your information, you'll find both relays in the main fuse block.
