Back order means that the dealer cannot get the part because there is a great demand for it and the vendor (manufacturer) not MAZDA is back logged and it is trying to fill the back logged orders. Usually a back-order can last from a week to about 1-2 months. So be patient and enjoy the ride.

Do you have heated seats? There seems to be a defect that Mazda is aware of where the heated seats are not turning off and draining the battery. This has happened to numerous people. Some several times before they are made aware of he problem. I would take the car to your dealer.
#8 of 15 Heated Seats
Feb 25, 2010 (7:30 pm)
I'm glad I'm not the only one who has had problems with the heated seats. I was beginning to feel like I was imagining that the seats didn't heat up. When I took the 2010 Mazda CX9 Grand Touring for a test drive last month (Jan) I told the salesman that the seats weren't heating up. He said he would have it looked at because Mazda had issued a letter about problems with the heated seats. I purchased the car a few days later and he made an appointment to have the heated seats checked. The repair shop told me there was nothing wrong. They said they take at least 20 minutes to heat up because of all the seat padding. Ok, I took it for a 2 hour drive and the seats never heated up. Took it back to the shop today (Feb) for a defective rear hatch latch and also had them re-check the seats. I got a phone call that they have to replace the heated seat modules. Hopefully they will work when the modules are replaced. Will update when fixed.

Same exact problem. I took in to Mazda Dealer. They said their is an issue with some electronic gizmo that is supposed to turn off electricity to heated seats. Guess what--it does NOT. EVEN when the car ignition is in the OFF position. They even had the main Mazda trouble shooter in Northern NJ stop by and check car and he confirmed. They disabled heated seats, ordered new gizmo (took 2 weeks to get in), replaced gizmo and now all fixed. YOU need to bring your car to dealer immediately.
#12 of 15 Help! 07 CX-9 will not start
Jan 05, 2012 (9:49 am)
Car was garaged came for 5 hours during the day. I came out to leave and the car will not start. At first I thought it was the battery, but it is fine and there is no cranking from the starter. There is a flashing key on the console making me believe this is an antitheft issue. I have 2 keys for the car. Neither key will unlock the doors. The nearest dealer is 45 miles away. Towing it would be an expensive option! Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

#15 of 15 2010 CX-9 battery capacity
Nov 02, 2012 (7:15 am)
2010 Mazda CX-9. Drove it around last night to make sure battery was ok. This morning 7.30am, I put the ignition in ACC position and charged 2 cellphones using the car charger. After 3 hours, the battery is dead, can't start the car!
I thought the battery is rated at least 10AH so just 3 hours of 2 devices drawing around 0.7A (output of charger) wouldn't make it unstart-able.
Any ideas? Thanks
