  1. What noises have you guys found and fixed? so far?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Wow I’m at 60k and found out that the dealer did a crummy brake jobs. When I had a brake job done the car still had some weird squeak when braking. I just changed my brake and lubed the pad like how it should including the contact area that touches the brake hardware and piston. A month in, and...
  2. Homelink/Auto-Dim Mirror Install on 2018 GT - screwed it up and fixed it

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    This isn't intended to be a complete thread since it's covered at length in other posts - just a couple extra things that I found along the way. My 2018 hatchback GT came with the basic mirror, and I really wanted Homelink. I picked up a clean used Gentex 453 mirror from eBay for $35 (the one...
  3. Voice commands for music FIXED!!!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm on v59.00.546, Gracenote v8, no AIO tweaks. Your results may vary. For quite some time I've had a complete failure of voice commands for USB music (you may have seen my previous thread). Anyway, today I tried using the Reset all Factory Settings option... and it WORKED!!! Voice commands now...
  4. Check engine code P0365 finally fixed (I hope)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Check engine code P0365 finally fixed (I hope). 2014 Mazda 3 stalled numerous times and if it would restart was jerking. The dealer I bought it from repeatedly replaced exhaust camshaft sensors (well, first time they replaced the intake sensor - mechanic thought it only had one camshaft!). I...
  5. 2014 Mazda 3 Sport Dashboard Clicking Fixed :)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I recently bought a 2014 Mazda 3 Sport and it was plagued with a clicking sound that seemed to come from the passenger side dashboard. It seemed to happen about a week after buying it. It was driving me nuts since small or large bumps or even accelerating the car from a stop could induce the...
  6. Android Auto Bluetooth Call Issue *FIXED!*

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey everyone it's me Trez, your friendly neighborhood Mazda hacker extraordinaire and developer of AIO. When I took over the AIO project from my good buddy @Siutsch back in December, the issue with AA causing a bootloop after factory reset had just been fixed. Shortly after the code was...
  7. Brake light switch fixed!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Not sure if this has been addressed before, but I'm having problems searching the forums. I had multiple warning lights lit up solid on our 2014 iTouring: TCS/DCS malfunction, check engine, master warning, and TPMS warning lights. I think the brake warning light was on also. Why the TPMS light...
  8. Mazda 3 Dislikes and How you fixed them?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have had my Mazda for a little over a year now and I honestly love it. Before and after all the added mods. But like all things there are drawbacks. What things about your mazda you didn't like and how did you fix them? Mine are listed in video below. My plans to make my mazda better. I plan...
  9. Intermittent Cruise Control Problem Fixed

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I don't know if this is even worth a new thread but I've had this strange cruise control issue that no one could solve. Basically, out of nowhere, the cruise control stopped engaging. The amber light would turn on but the control would not set the speed. Well, the culprit was my car...
  10. Long scratch... can it be fixed?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi all, I've attached a picture of this scratch I just noticed on my car. Not exactly sure where it's from. i just hate it now that I know that it's there. Before taking it in somewhere, is there anything/any products I can use on my own to fix it? Is it fixable? It's brand new (since April)...
  11. Flexible vs fixed oil change interval?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    flexible = 10k miles fixed = 7.5k miles they're both for schedule 1 (hwy miles). whats the difference besides 2.5k miles?
  12. Is NAV in HUD fixed in V55.753?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm not sure anyone has confirmed here one way or another that version 55.753 has fixed the problem of the NAV directions no longer appearing in the HUD. Can someone definitively say whether or not it is working again.
  13. Stereo inspected and "fixed" over 5 times. Advice needed.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have been having issues with my Bose stereo ever since I bought the car in October 2014. The speakers go out, there is horrible static coming from all the door panel speakers even when nothing is playing. I've taken it to a dealership for it to get "fixed" over 5 times now and I thought the...
  14. Does my car have fixed roof mount points for a roof rack?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    There is nothing I can find in the manual on this. I can find instructions online for using cargo racks with fixed roof mounting points but it's hard to tell what models and generations that applies to. I have a 2015 S GT and there is nothing on the roof that looks like a mounting point. Are...
  15. i-Eloop Problem.....is it fixed?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Earlier this week, my vehicle's i-Eloop system developed a fault and stopped working. I brought it in to the Mazda service centre and they found error code P01794, essentially a problem in the charging logic of the PCM for the capcitor. There is a Service bulletin out so they reprogrammed it...
  16. Melting Dashboard getting fixed.. now what?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    alright so it has been a while since I posted on here and that is mostly due to my lack of love for my 3 as the dash started melting last year and I just couldn’t handle it. Im a bit OCD in that I keep my car clean at all times and the melted dash has been my nemesis as it collects hair & dust...
  17. Gracenote Database 3.00 Available (Corrupted artwork fixed?)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm sorry if someone previously posted a topic like this. I recently noticed a new Gracenote Database is available for download from Mazda. I installed it last night, and while I haven't thoroughly tested it yet, this morning when playing songs from 2 different USB drives, I was seeing artwork...
  18. Suspension clunk finally fixed! Future TSB?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Suspension clunk finally fixed. Mods, please edit the title. Thanks. Like a few who've been bothered by low speed clunk over humps, mine had it since new. Tightening done on 1st inspection, no change. I spoke directly w/ the head tech(EX BMW/MINI Tech) over at our local dealership & he has...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    This might help somebody... My infotainment center together with the GPS crashed for no obvious reason. Just FM radio working (USB port not recognized), navi SD card not recognized. Running still the ori s/w as purchased in Oct. 2013, Mazda 3 GT Sport. Action taken - hard re-boot by...
