  2. Has anyone upgraded their halogen-equipped Mazda 3s to the GT-style LED headlights?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have a question for anyone who understands the electronics and wiring of the 3rd gen Mazda 3s. I just ordered some GT replica headlights for my halogen-equipped (iTouring, 2016) Mazda 3. After install, it seems that the LED strip is only used as the parking light and the projector is used as...

    I just ordered some GT replica headlights for my halogen-equipped (iTouring, 2016) Mazda 3. After install, it seems that the LED strip is only used as the parking light and the projector is used as the DRL/low/highbeam. Is there a way to wire up the parking light to come on with the DRLs...

I wanted to pull out the 15A fuse for the DRL , but there was no fuse in the fuse box. There is a 20A fuse for high beams and above that a 20A fuse for the headlight...
  8. DRL setup hard on high beam bulbs; reroute to fogs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The stock setup of the high beams running at half voltage as the DRLs is bad for the filament of halogen bulbs. Halogens need to run at (near or over) full voltage for the actual halogen cycle to work. Lifespan and luminosity are both negatively affected with the stock setup. Inspection of...
  9. Disabled DRL while keeping high beam?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I ordered a front turn signal that acts as a DRL white, then switches amber for turn signal. I always disliked the orignal yellow-ish DRL, can i disabled it, but do want to keep high beam for safety on the streets. You guys probably already know, DRL and high beam uses the same bulb. Thanks

  13. 2018 LED DRL - Turn off Projector?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I got a 2018 GT with the LED headlights a few weeks ago. Love it but I noticed that 3s with LED or HID prior to 2018 used the ring around the projector and/or the eyebrow as a DRL rather than turning on the projector itself. The 2018 turns on both, so from the front it looks the same...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am looking to replace my halogen yellow headlights in my 2018 Mazda 3 Touring Hatchback to cooler, blue lights. Because of so many differing opinions here about the efficacy of LED lights, I was thinking about replacing the halogen lights to 4300K halogens I found on CarID. I can't post...
  18. Has anyone installed these fog light DRLs for 2017+ ms3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've seen these on eBay and they looks very nice especially since the turn signals are now LED. I'm reluctant to get these because I've seen zero install videos or guides, and was wondering if someone here has them and has installed them successfully. If so could you guys comment on how reliable...
  19. Disabling DRL

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey all, I saw a thing (I think on here) about being able to disable your DRL with some ebrake on/off ritual. I've tried it a few times (reading, reading, and reading over the instructions again) to no success. Am I just not doing it right, or are there certain years/trims that you CAN'T turn...
