If not I'll likely retire the car before next summer. It hasn't worked right since I bought it. I have experience this issue over 20 time now. Also they offered to replace the tint they scratched free of charge. When I told service dept.
I didn't want to even go near it as my wife relies on this car for work so I carefully removed the output terminal for the room fuse and mated it up with an usused live terminal in the box as a temporary fix , I am now on a hunt for another box. Thought was related to previous recall - power steering. Window regulator adjusted and switch assembly replaced under warranty. It was annoying, but never critical enough to motivate a fix. My concern is myself or anyone else getting stuck in freezing weather, icy conditions, or a bad part of town in the middle of the night. Should women or children, or anyone else be stranded and harmed in any way by this known defect, I hope Mazda is liable for not addressing this issue.
I cannot get the left signal to stop going off, although sometimes it will just stop on its own. The system was then recharged and checked for leaks. When I close the door and go use the remote to lock it, the doors don't lock. Bearing had been exhibiting symptoms of grinding for a few years, so I'd been pushing my luck delaying replacement. Help keep our community friendly and fun! Apr 16, 2017 I had the same thing happen when I replaced my battery on my 2006 mazda 6. Took to dealer - found it was alternator. Unable to replicate since only happens every few weeks.
I've just been living with it, but it doesn't instill a lot of confidence in the car and its electrical system. First repair attempt, replaced alternator. The failure mileage was 130,000. I hope someone can help or has some answers, I really don't want to spend a ton of money on the radio. Damage sustained to the battery and connectors. Help keep our community friendly and fun! The ballasts were pulling charge from the battery even when the car was off. Very poor Bluetooth connectivity and general system performance.
The connector stopped making solid contact with the bulb assembly; requires about 5 degree clockwise turn to make connection again. After messing around with the settings I realized i had not setup my radio correctly. Vehicle was towed to the nearest dealer. I will replace the coil and see if that fixes it. If you left headlights on for 4 hours your battery would for sure die. The infotainment system repeatedly crashed on the return trip as well.
Mechanic had to replace a faulty wire 61290 km Wire in speaker malfunctioned again. Had to get it replaced. Other cars were leaving too so we were in a line of them. Dealer took all day to incorrectly diagnose and order part. Sometimes, the power steering light comes on, but then doesn't shut off. All the buttons are lighted, my dashboard was fine, and I could still listen to the radio and switch stations. Aways after service I would remember.
It is still under warranty. To check ground, you can still use the test lite, one end comes from voltage, the other end you touch to ground wire, the actual wire not the insulation, if the lite comes on, at least you know the ground is good enough to turn on the lite. Tried to get it out myself at one point, but couldn't figure out how. Wasn't particularly cold or wet, but cleaned battery connections and problem seemed to resolve. I'm not sure if Mazda going to do anything about this issue, but id like my voice to be heard. They had to special order a replacement horn.
Zero improvement to poor system performance and Bluetooth connectivity. If your car radio stopped working after a jump start, or after a battery charge, then the problem might still be related to a car radio code anti-theft feature. I can only help by telling you to check voltage and ground circuits. Now in discussion with Mazda corporate to designate car as a lemon and discuss financial resolution. Took the vehicle to our regular mechanic and he said that the power steering pump needs to be replaced.
