  1. fuel gauge

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    How does Mazda, specifically the 2019 3, set up its fuel gauges? Unlike any other car that I have owned, filling the tank pegged the gas tank at full (rather that going past full). But the gauge remains pegged at full after 40 miles. What happens at the bottom? My other cars let the gauge go a...
  2. My new gauge cluster

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Had an old tablet collecting dust and decided to go with a permanent torque app setup for monitoring coolant temps among other things. I think it looks pretty slick lol???
  3. Fuel gauge resets back to full?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone Just awhile ago I've experienced something weird with my fuel gauge. I was driving for about 40 kilometers from my office to the job site. I parked my car and saw my fuel gauge was reading 3/4 of a tank. Later I got back to the car and for some reason my tank was reading full and my...
  4. AEM OBD2 Gauge

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey Guys, Thought I would post a quick review of the AEM OBD2 Gauge. This is one of the new X-Series gauges that has recently been released. I had one of my shops get it directly from AEM as it seems like most distributors are sold out across North America, and for good reason. I have been...

  6. Water Temp/Oil Pressure gauge??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I recently purchased a 2017 Mazda 3, which I'm in love with. However, the one thing that bothers me is not being able to see water temperature and oil pressure. I've noticed there aren't any gauge pods out for the Gen3 right now, so a custom gauge pod would probably have to be fabbed up (not...

  8. Cooling System Puzzler

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hello all, I just bought a 2008 mazda 3 i Touring with 124,000 miles on it. I just started noticing that my temperature gauge will begin to climb in steady intervals past the half-way point. If I blast the heat I can get it to drop back down to normal operating temperatures. The strange thing...

I have an automatic 2011 mazda 3 2.5, I am still learning about getting gauges and wanted to get some more info on them until I decide to get them or not. I know for sure I want a water temp gauge cause the car doesnt have one and I wanna keep...
  10. Gauge cluster upgrade

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I purchased a 2014 i SV and am blown away by all of the features that I missed out on when I went for this base model. Three major ones that I'm craving are cruise control, steering wheel radio controls, and the standard gauge cluster. Here's what I'm left to look at as of now - Yes, that's...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I am having a small rattle and it appears to coming from Gauge Cluster area… at least when I press on the cluster noise goes away. Does anyone know how to remove the Gauge cluster? There is a black piece of trim that goes around the cluster where cluster joints with the dash board and I am...
  13. Fuel Gauge Malfunction?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone, I had my Mazda3 2014 for a little over a year now. It always seemed to me that the fuel gauge is over-cautious by a generous margin, but only last week I put this assumption to the test. I ran until there was one little line left on the fuel gauge and the Range estimate was 10...
  14. iGT to sGT gauge swap?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Before you call it crazy, just consider this hypothetical. If someone could get their hands on a sGT set of gauges, how difficult would the swap for the sGT on an iGT car? The back of my mind says that the plugins would be similar, and the outputs from the car diagnostics should be similar...
  15. 0 gauge power wire on a 2012 Mazda3 Sky

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, I'm looking to find the best possible location to put a 0 gauge power wire on my MZ3 hatch manual. I've checked the threads and I've seen lots of 4g and lower but no real talk about 0g. The places where the 4g is in will not really fit 0g. Power steering under the driver side would be...
  16. Outside temp gauge inaccurate

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone else's temp Guage display temps that are much higher than the actual outside temp? For example, it was high 70F's most of last week, and every time my gauge said it was ~93F. Every other car I've had has been more accurate than this.

  18. Landrover installs Gen 2 Mazda type gauge cluster housing.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Well that threw me off. I thought I was looking at a Gen 2 mazda cluster for a few seconds. However, I love how they have another dash part over the gauges. I'm now thinking of doing this to my car. It just seems right. MainPump: Green Pearl RS250 Range Rover Evoque from Kahn Design
