  1. Auto climate control - works great

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    As many of you know, sometimes the Auto setting for the climate control does not work very well in some cars. I am happy to report that in the 2019 Mazda3 it works great. I simply set it to 63 degrees then press auto and put both the driver and passenger side in 'Sync'. The interior cabin hits...

  3. 2018 Climate Control

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys so i've searched for this, called the dealer and not finding any help. I believe someone posted it but then just put fixed and that was it. I have a 2018 Mazda 3 Touring with the dual climate control. When i click the "Off" button it shuts off the AC/Heat but the circulation (rather it...
  4. Climate control has troubles switching from cold to hot and Vice Versa..

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello! I got a 2015 Mazda 3 sports trim with 55k miles on it. Recently I've been having troubles switching the climate control from hot to cold. It also will be stuck on warm a lot of the times even when on max AC. When I try switching it from hot TO cold, I have to move the temp knob to COLD...
  5. Another Climate Control thread - but backwards

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I've done some searches on the forum, and found a few threads from people that have the manual climate controls system asking how to upgrade to the automatic system. It sounds like a rather involved process due to the missing sensors installed throughout the interior of the cabin, etc etc...
  6. 2011 Climate Control Problem

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys. I swapped out my cabin air filters and right after doing it the CC unit started acting weird. The settings ?1,2,3? don?t activate the fan. The setting 4 does activate the fan. But it also shuts off the A/C unit. Very strange. I?m thinking the ECU is messed up and maybe just needs a...
  7. 2014 iTouring Set of Seats + Auto Climate Controls

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Are these seats worth anything? I'd let them go for cheap/free if someone could come and get them. I have a set of iTouring premium cloth seats. Great condition -- I just switched out to leather and an auto climate control bezel and controls. I'm in Durham, North Carolina.
  8. Climate Control - fan blows cold when A/C is off

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I like to have fresh air slightly circulating in my cars and usually have the fan set at 1, the mode to defrost/floor, and the temperatures to 71/71. I never touch it and leave it like that. It was set like this in my Mazda6 without issue. But with the Mazda3, the fan blows cold air to the...
  9. Automatic climate control functionality

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Its a 2017 but assume its the same as many of you. I have the automatic climate control system. My question? When in automatic the system always seems to illuminate the tiny AC indicator and I am forced to press the AC button so the compressor does not run. Even if I raise the temps high the ac...
  10. Question about Dual Mode Automatic Climate Control

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I cannot discern from the manual how the Auto On mode interacts with the temperature control. Here's the situation... it's getting hot out and I want to set the driver's temp to (for example) 62 degrees. I press Auto On and set the temp. The response is that the A/C goes on and the fan is...
  11. Should Climate control show on LCD ?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello people, Just wondering.. when I change temperature or any setting in the climate control unit shouldn't there be an info reading on the 7" main LCD ? Isn't it can bus connected? Thank you
  12. '14 sGT Climate Control Random Max Heat

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Was driving the car today and noticed it was getting quite warm in the cabin with the windows down. I always keep the thermostat at 68, A/C Off. But today I look down and it increased by itself to 88 degrees without me touching knobs. It has done this once before, but I thought it was a fluke...
  13. Climate control never worked

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I am wondering if I can repost this. This is really true and I wonder what could be causing this. This is my first post so hope I am in the right forum. I have a 2013 Mazda 3 with GPS and the climate control. It never seems right. If it is cold out, I need to turn the temp way up. Hot and...
  14. question on audio system change and climate control???

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Audio system: I have one of the first 2014 itourings that came in. Of course they had the basic audio system. If I get the upgraded rotary controlled (now standard) system out of a wrecked 3, will it plug and play??? Aside from nav which I could care less about anyway. If not what else...

    What is the best way to go about vinyl wrapping around the climate controls? I have everything thing done except for around the climat controls, the vents and around the speedometer
  17. Need help with Climate Control

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    New Mazda owner here (itouring with tech package); I feel dumb for asking, but am a little confused how to operate the dual zone climate control. 1. So when I press the auto button - it always defaults to recirculate as opposed to brining in outside air. Is this normal? 2. How do I just bring...
  18. 2014 Mazda 3 Climate Control Knobs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I currently have a 2014 mazda 3 and was looking to replace the climate control knobs. I found some on various sites like mazdacarpet and autolimo but they all have 2010-2013. Do any of you know where to get some for the 2014 or will 2010+ ones work fine with the 2014? Thanks a bunch!
  19. Climate Control Problem

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey all. My 3 is 3 weeks old now and I've had the following intermittent problem - wondering if anyone else has seen this: the air blowing out at the feet is cool unless the temperature is set all the way to the highest setting. If put it on max, the air coming out is HOT. Anything less, the air...
  20. Question about Auto Climate Control

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    For those with the 2nd gen Mazda3 and have Automatic Climate Control, has your auto ac dial become rougher and less smooth to turn compared to when it was new or compared to the "Dual" dial? I know its a picky question, but given your interaction with your car (tactile feel of each dial and...
