  1. ABS and TCS problem

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hi, anyone with a good solution for fixing ABS/TCS lights coming on in their Mazda3? I have a 2nd gen 2009 Mazda3 with 50,000 miles on the clock. A couple of weeks ago the ABS and TCS lights came on at the same time. After a few days the lights went off, and after another few they came back on...
  2. Battery sat disconnected and now throwing codes and DSC light

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi All - (Hope this is in the right section) I added sound deadening and soundproofing material to my 2.5L hatch following this DIY write-up (Cheaply and effectively sound deadening your 2010-2013 Mazda3) and disconnected the battery prior to disconnecting the airbag connectors under the seats...

    i have a issue with my abs where if i press my brakes just hard enough for the abs to kick in, i feel it pulse through the pedal as you should. but if i hit it hard enough for the EBA to kick in, the front left wheel will lock up till the car comes to a stop before letting the brakes go (ie...
  4. What does the diagnostic code C0120 mean on a 2010 Mazda 3? The ABS warning light is

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    What does the diagnostic troubleshooting code (DTC) *C0120* mean on a 2010 Mazda 3? The ABS warning light is also on. Googling it only comes up with a message for a fault on a Toyota but nothing that I can find for a Mazda 3. Thanks, Nick
  5. Brake pedal goes to floor after ABS actuation

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    So I have this strange issue that I have not been able to figure out, to be fair it's on a Mazda 5 but it's not too different from a 3. Anyway, when the ABS is actuated, the brake pedal goes to the floor but will still stop. I turn the car off, then turn it back on a few seconds later, the...
  6. how to bleed the abs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I'm going to flush out my brake lines and clutch at some point, easy job and don't need help there. Where I'm a little stuck is flushing out the abs module? I've never had to do that one....my old car didn't have abs! I know that doing it 'properly' means the dealer needs to hook electronics up...
  7. 2005 Mazda 3s 2.3L manual trans abs non abs

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    I'm putting a new transmission in my 2005 Mazda 3s and it has a manual transmission. However I wanted to know the difference between the trans with abs and the trans without abs. My car has abs and I can't find a trans anywhere close with abs only without. I was curious if I could use a trans...
  8. Mazda 3 2016 TPMS and ABS light on

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi, I recently bought a used Mazda 3 2016 iSport and the TPMS light starts blinking for a few seconds and stays on and ABS light is always on. I went to the dealer and they said I need to replace ABS module but gave the part number as BHP1-57-K30A which comes up as SDM module. I am confused if...
  9. How to paint ABS plastic?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys. I just purchased a BaysonR spoiler for my '17 hatchback. As some of you may know, BaysonR's products are made of ABS plastic, and they come unpainted. Therefore, I will have to paint the spoiler myself. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea how to go about doing this. I don't...
  10. Cracked ABS box

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    How bad is it if the ABS case has been cracked just enough that there is an opening? Could it be sealed instead of being replaced?
  11. Disabling ABS

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I need to disable my ABS, has anyone done this on a 2014+ Mazda 3 yet? If so which fuses do I pull? Usually its one of the fuses under the hood. I can do trial/error method but am hoping someone else has done this before already and knows which one(s) to pull. Disclaimer, I am not debating...
  12. ABS sensor stuck in knuckle.. now what?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So my traction control light and ABS sensor lights came on a couple weeks ago. My speed control also stopped working at the same time. I was told that this was because of a faulty ABS sensor, so I go in to remove the passenger side and I find out it's stuck. Well.. worst possible thing happened...
  13. After replacing strut, ABS and Traction Control lights are ON

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Not sure why, not sure how to fix. Any ideas? Could they have broken a sensor or is there a way to reset the lights? They do not blink. I drive a 2011 Mazda 3
  14. ABS, TCS and TPMS lights on

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I recently bought an 08 Mazda 3 hatchback for my daughter and she loves it. We are needing yet another car so I'm seriously thinking about getting another Mazda 3 that is a couple of years newer. I found a 2010 with around 100k miles that is in great shape & priced good, the only problem is...
  15. Unusual sound on startup. ABS self-test?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a 2014 Mazda3 with about 17k miles. When I first give the car gas after startup, I hear a series of creaks coming from somewhere under the engine bay (I think). Again, it only happens after I put the car in D and apply my foot on the accelerator for the first time. I don't hear any other...
  16. How do I read ABS codes?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I have a 2010 Mazda 3 GT with 2.5 L engine. ABS and Traction control lights are on. I understand there is a way to read the codes if the lights are blinking, but how do I get the lights to blink? Is my only recourse a trip to a dealer? I found instructions for older Mazdas that involve...
  17. Mazda 3 2010 - 2013 ABS / Air Bag System - Blinking Codes

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Took me several hours to find these. This is for the air bag system (ABS) on 2nd generation Mazda 3's. Unlesss you have the $1,000 code readers that the Mazda dealerships have, you can't read the codes through the OBDII port. The only way to diagose is to watch the air bag light and how many...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Dear all, I’m the owner of a Mazda 3 I, 2010, 47 000 miles, in Miami FL 8 months ago, I started to have ABS and TSC warning light coming on and off. It could stay on a day or more and then be off for couple of days. The only pattern I noticed: most of the time, the lights were on when it was hot...
  19. ABS and Traction Control light on

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey everyone. 2010 Mazda 3 2.5S hatchback with about 43k miles on it. My ABS and TC light come on at times when I'm driving and stay on until I turn the car off and restart it (presumably resetting the ABS/TC computer). I'm guessing it's just a simple wheel speed sensor that needs replacing...
  20. Abs and skid light constant

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    My abs light and skid light is constantly on. I did some research and found it might be my abs speed sensor or whatever that's called. My question is do you guys agree and where exactly is that located? Do I have multiple and speed sensors? Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
