    Hello everyone! I have some problems with my 2015 Mazda 3 that I can't figure out. Today, when I wanted to take a ride and tried to open my doors with the remote, i couldn't get in. So I used the key to open it. And when I tried to start it, nothing happened. i first thought that the battery...

    Went to start my 2019 Mazda 3 today and the battery is dead. In fairness, it's been sitting in my garage for a week and it was probably at the dealer for some time as well. With all of the electronics in this car are Mazda's notorious for battery problems? If so, should I invest in a good...

    Evening all, New to the forum, so please excuse if this is in the wrong area. I think it should be ok though. Yesterday I bought a Mazda3 2010 2.2D Sport Manual here in the UK. 108k miles on the clock so no young pup, but hopefully it will last a while. We started and stopped the car a number...

    About a year ago, we had to get another fob because I'd lost mine. Today, the battery was dead on it. Roads were dry; so I took the Miata instead and only got spits of rain within 1.5 miles of the house. Worked out. Later this afternoon, I had to go to a meeting, and the rain had started...

    The battery on my key fob was dying, the car warned me to replace it but I wasn't aware I was supposed to do this ASAP. Today I got to my care and the key fob didn't work, I opened the car door manually and tried to ignite the card with my key fob next to the push start button, it didn't work...

    I took my 2014 Mazda 3 to the dealership today and it was determined the CMU was dead and needed to be replaced. It is not the screen, it worked fine. It will cost about $1,000 to have it done at the dealership. Is it possible to do this on my own? If so, how difficult is it? Is there someplace...

    My 2013 i Touring started buzzing one morning. I thought it was the neighbour’s snow blower at first. After I had turned off the engine and turn off the head lights and fog lights, I walked around the front of the car and realized it was the Morimoto XB LED Fog Lights buzzing from turning on...

    I broke my clutch foot about a month ago and am just now starting to drive my Speed 3. The first time was yesterday morning and the battery was dead. I normally ride with my wife to work, but I had been invited to a meeting with admins so we had to go separately. In a panic to not be late, I...

    Hey all, So I went on vacation for a week, came back and my battery was dead, completely dead. I had my neighbor come give me a jump, after I got it started, all the lights in the dash were blinking, power steering was out and then it just died out on me. I did get a new battery and everything...

    My Infotainment screen dead was completely dead. Just got back from the Mazda dealership and they told me the CMU is dead and it's going to be 1200 CAD to replace it. What other options do I have? Used one maybe? Thanks

    My wife discovered that the key fob she has for our MX-5 was dead today. For it, you just extract the key from the fob like on the 3's and just use the key like you would a keyed system in the ignition, doors and trunk. Got me wondering what you do on the 3. So, I looked it up in the owner's...

    Out of curiosity, my 2017 Mazda 3 has that fancy new electronic Ebrake.........What if the battery dies? Is the Ebrake then locked until the vehicle can be boosted and/or battery removed and recharged? Or is there some other way of disengaging the electronic Ebrake? My fear is that some day my...

    With no warning symptoms my 2014 was totally dead Sunday morning, after last driving it the previous Friday. No indicator lights, no ticks, horn, trunk release, nothing. When I put a charger on, it seemed to show a fully dead battery, so I assumed it had succumbed to the Texas heat. But I left...

    My 2010 speed3 has a dead amplifier, so says the dealership. They have been wrong on issues before so I'm not taking it as gospel. My stereo crackles, pops and sound like its about to explode. Had to remove the fuse to stop the chaos. Dealer says new amp for $800 will take care of it! Anyone...
