  1. Shorted Dome Light?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Dome Light-Parasitic Battery Drain? I picked up a new 2019 Mazda 3 Sedan for my youngest son last Saturday. And yes, he's paying me back. There are no free rides in my family. (pun intended) :) Anyway, since he's still in school, I parked it in my garage waiting for him to return from college...
  2. Interior dome light not coming on

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, My 2010 Mazda 3 left side dome light does not come on when I open the driver side door. It only lights up when I press the left side button or when I flip the switch to the left. Where do I begin to trouble shoot? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. 2012 dome light comes on by itself

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    2012 Mazda 3 sedan, in the past month the dome light has come on by itself, all doors closed trunk closed, anyone ever have this problem? I'm thinking it may be a faulty door switch or the light itself has a problem, dome light is set to where it comes on when the doors are opened. Thanks
  4. Dome Light

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone have a good link for dome light replacements for a 2014 Mazda 3? I've seen a few on Amazon but they are of questionable quality. All I know about the lights is that they are 5730. I would like them to be red.
  5. 2014+ Interior dome light - back

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello, Some genius at Mazda decided to save cost by removing the switch on the back dome light... my problem is that my son sometimes needs a light in the back, to get a snack or look at a book. But the back light cannot be turned on separately from the front. How complicated would be to put a...

    Since the manual does not specify and no one cares to share here it is. The dome light uses a festoon bulb of 31mm. My replacement was LED

  10. Dome Light Problem

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I was installing these led kickplates on my 2010 3 hatchback. I got them to work. I wired them to the front dome lights. Now my dome lights front and rear won't light up when in the door position. They work if you turn them on manually. I've searched everywhere but can't seem to find an...
  11. Dome lights turn on intermittantly

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    This is for a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3. I am driving along and the dome lights will both go on about once every hour of driving, but sometimes in clusters of 3 or so times until I turn off the lights. The door ajar light does not go on when this happens. If I open and close the door, the lights go...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I apologize for my ignorance but even after using the SEARCH option I was not able to find the instruction on how to change the center dome light, trunk light and back plate light. I was able to change the map light for both. I don't know if I need to take the whole housing out for the center...
  13. Dimmer map and dome light

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I don't know about others but I've always found my map lights and dome light in my 2014 Mazda 3 sport (hatch) way to bright. When I park in my driveway at night it's very dark as I live in the country and when you shut off the ignition the lights pop on and they're WAY to bright. I checked...
  14. Map/ Dome light fuse question

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've been thinking of adding some white led strips in the footwells but I want them to work with the map lights how they turn on when you open the door and then fade out when you close/lock the doors. Would I need to tap the the positive wire directly from the map light or can I tap the fuse in...
  15. DIY: Easy Aftermarket Footwell Lighting That Dims With Dome Light

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I did a whole lot of searching, trying to decide whether or not to go with an OEM footwell lighting kit or to go with an aftermarket one. I found out that the OEM add-on kit was just continuous power with a switch and was either always on or always off. I did not want them on while driving, so I...

    I have a somewhat strange issue going on with my map light. The button for the maplight appears to be stuck.

  18. Dome light and glove box light

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Is there a fuse that controls the dome light? Mine isn't working. Haven't checked the bulb yet. I noticed in my fuse box next to the steering wheel, the fuse for (Room 2) is missing. I went and bought a low profile 15A fuse, and it was too small. It just kept slipping right out. But the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I went out to my car for a minute to get something out of it. I unlocked the door with the fob; the dome light went on; I opened the door and got in, but I didn't shut the door. The dome light then shut off after about 5 seconds, even though the door was still open. I had to put the switch...
