2013 Mazda3 Headlight TSB

We're new owners of a 2013 Mazda3 with flickering headlights whenever you step on the brakes.

When doing some serious web searching I found this:
NHTSA reference# 10053740 and a TSB number SB-01-019-13

Does anyone have anymore details? We have a call into the dealer, but want to be prepared with more information.

I don't, that's just a screen grab from another forum. I figured once we have the TSB number someone could find the original.

I have a subscription to alldatadiy.com but I checked there for TSB's but haven't seen the one for flickering headlights so I wrote them and asked about it so maybe tomorrow I will have an answer from them. If I can get it I will post it up

It's a screen grab from another Mazda site. I'll try and find it again.
