    I know there have been many posts about the heads up display not actuating and the reasons. Here is my story.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    It hung up yesterday. Shut the engine off, restarted, it went down ( from hung up position) back to hung up position, down again and then up to where it should be. Anyone else have a problem?
