  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Is it possible to keep the car running but walk out with the key fob and lock the doors while away from the vehicle? For instance you want to keep the car A/C running while you step out to get something to drink at the gas station but you don't want anyone jumping in and driving away.

    I have been on the phone researching with crutchfield and trying to figure this out, crutchfield is saying the depth and size is what limits the front door so I have only 2 speaker options for the front that are really bad. 6.5 has a ton of options is there a way to make a 6.5 fit or are they to...

    *Check your door jams!!!! The hinges that hold the doors to the body are showing rust spots on them already. Looks like the edges of the door hinges are exposed metal. Either prime and paint them or spray rust proof wax on them. Looks like they rushed the painting of the hinges as the paint...

    Did you guys remove those big foam blocks inside the door and leave them out or did you put them back in after adding deadening material? I'm adding fatmat to my doors and I just put one back together then realized that I forgot to put those foam blocks back in but I don't really see what...

    I read the section in the service manual about opening up the front door (thinking about doing some sound deadening). The procedure seems fairly easy, except that I don't understand how to release the door handle lever after popping the plastic rivets. 1. Can anyone explain better ? 2. Does...

    Hey all, just a quick question. With the keyless entry system it seems that if the car is on and I try to open any door except my drivers side, they're locked. I'm only able to unlock them is by going back to the drivers side door and unlocking the car from the inside. It may sound like a stupid...

    Hey folks, I know that pressing the black button on the driver door handle twice is supposed to unlock all doors. This doesn't work on my car. I have to press it 3 times to open all doors. Wife and I carpool everyday to work and we were constantly fighting to get the double tap to open her...

    I made this work on our Skyactiv Auto trans. I LOVE IT! No more going back and forth when the car is running because the CPU did not unlock all doors and I only find out when I get to the trunk because I forget about that option. I kept the factory setting on our skyactiv manual car. We own two...

    Seems like a dumb question I know. Bare with me. But at 6am I was up for work so I went out, started the car and it wouldn't let me lock it no matter what from the outside. Sure makes sense, so some dumb a-hole doesn't lock his keys in the car. Reason I guess it bothers me is my most recent car...

    Ok, so I did some search and found nothing really about this, sorry if I didn't find. lol So, my idea is when you turn off your car, get out of your car and lock doors with the remote, it would also close all windows and sunroof. I read many threads about auto power windows that only work on...

    Hey guys, So this is my first car audio job, now that things are warming up I can really finish up my install.. the other day I got the door panels removed easy, figured out how to install my new setup, everything is laid out. Only issue is how mazda has a harness in the doors that plugs into...

    Hi I have the advanced key which I normally use to open and lock my Mazda3 GT. But today I went into my garage as I had forgotten to lock my car. I did not have my key with me and consequently could not lock the doors. Is it possible to lock my doors without having the advanced key within...

    I always thought it was cheap-o of Mazda to not add the LED door pull lighting to the rear doors and felt that would have really made the car a bit more complete in respect to the interior lighting.. So I added LED’s to the door pull and door cup holders and here’s how I went about it. I used...

    On three or four occassions, I've removed my key (non smart key) and hear the warning chime that indicates I've left the key in. When I close the door and go use the remote to lock it, the doors don't lock. If I put the key in and cylce through the ignition I can get the beep to go away. This...

    I'm trying to get LED lights for the bottom of the front doors. Which ones go with the 2010 Mazda 3? :)

    Hello everyone, Just took delivery of my new hatcback 3 today. Loving the car so far, but I do have a few questions I didn't see addressed in the manual. I would like to be able to start my car, and leave it running to allow the heater to warm up and the defrost to clear off the window with...
