    Hi, anyone with a good solution for fixing ABS/TCS lights coming on in their Mazda3? I have a 2nd gen 2009 Mazda3 with 50,000 miles on the clock. A couple of weeks ago the ABS and TCS lights came on at the same time. After a few days the lights went off, and after another few they came back on...

    Hi All - (Hope this is in the right section) I added sound deadening and soundproofing material to my 2.5L hatch following this DIY write-up (Cheaply and effectively sound deadening your 2010-2013 Mazda3) and disconnected the battery prior to disconnecting the airbag connectors under the seats...

    I just got a 2018 3 and I'm a bit confused about how the DSC off button works. On my old RX-8, hitting DSC off would turn off TCS but leave DSC on, while holding the DSC off button down for eight seconds would disable both TCS and DSC. How does this work on the 3? From reading the manual it...

    What are the possible causes when TPMS and DSC are illuminated? Could these be related to electrical? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here is the picture of this box. I want to replace 'blank' switch by my customs but I don't figure out how to open this box yet. Is this possible to open and anyone knows how to do that? Thanks!

    By now you might have heard about a little flooding we had down here in Louisiana. Well, when the water came up overnight, I had to drive my car (a '12 SkyActiv/Auto, Touring, 4-door) out. It was high enough to cover the pedals, but that's about as far as it got. As soon as I had it out of the...

    My girlfriend has a 2010 Mazda 3 Sport (hatchback with 2.5 engine), and yesterday she told me one of the dashboard warning lights was coming on and the car was acting like it had some kind of acceleration problem. I took it for a test drive, and sure enough, sometimes when accelerating on bone...

    So 2 days ago I was driving to a friends place and it was lightly raining. I went in for a visit and came back to start the car about 3 hours later and drove like 50 ft and noticed that my dash lights are on. So I check the warnings and I got the following: - DSC Malfunction - SCBS Malfuntion...

    All of a sudden I saw three warnings in my "Applications" sections. None of the real warning lights on the dash are on. I went to the applications to check out the fuel economy monitor and noticed this. Any ideas/ suggestions ? There isn't any option to clear out the error. I drove back home...

    Hello fellow 3 owners :) I am a proud owner of 2012 SKYACTIV 3 just put on the Conti DWS couple months ago! I've googled and search this site for an answer but i couldn't find anything that satisfies my curiosity so here's the question: Does DSC on/off affect handling? The reason why I ask...

    Hey all, I took my 2012 2.0i sedan to an autocross today, and I tried to disable stability control and traction control, but it didn't seem like it worked. Following the procedure in the owner's manual, I held the DSC button down for 5 seconds in order to disable the system, but it seemed like...

    I was driving down a road by my house that I go down everyday. It was a smooth road, no bumps, driving straight, bright and sunny outside and all of a sudden my cars DCS light turns on and I can feel the brakes grabbing. If it happens again, I'll take it into the dealer. Has anyone else had...

    Wasn't sure if I should've posted this in the How To or in the General Discussion section. Admin, you may move this thread as you see fit. I was wondering about DSC. Anybody remember the "True Off" mode on the 1st Gen Speed 3? Went something like, put key to accessory, while holding "DSC Off"...

    This is my frist car with ABS, Traction Control and Stability Control. I appreciate that Mazda allows you to turn off the DSC. My last car was an 2002 Mazda Protege with no electronic aids (ABS, traction, etc.). We've finally received significant rain in San Diego. I'm impressed with the system...

    Hi all, my gf is currently seeking for a new car and we tried a few, I quite liked the new MZ3 Sport and she did too. But since we're canadians, the DSC isn't standard on all trim levels. The only way to get it on the GS Sport she's looking at is by purchasing a $1500 package that has the...
