    Anyone try the Welcome Illumination footwell lights (p/n MZDAACWEL)? My dealer says they're not available yet but I found them online at several places.

    I lost the illumination of the buttons on the steering wheel, the backlight of the automatic transmission, and the radio buttons. The fuses are all intact.

    Hello I am the new owner of a 2010 Mazda 3 I Touring sedan with a single CD non-Bose radio. I was wondering if all of the buttons on the unit should light up (orange) when I put the headlights on at night? The center is illuminated blue with the lights off, but this gets very dim once headlights...

    Anyone have any experience popping off the front logo and putting led's behind it so that it "glows in the dark"?

    Does anybody know how to increase the daytime visibility of the Display Panel. Mine is so weak that it almost unreadable. Only had the car for 3 days-still learning;-duh!

    I know there is the blue led on the handle already plus the driver side window switch is illuminated. But does anybody else wish all of them were illuminated (driver side main and the other 3 doors)? Is there an illuminated switch you can buy then plug and play?

    While doing an audio install, I needed to find the vehicle speed signal and illumination wire and there were multiple threads with conflicting information so I made this picture to depict the location of both wires to help people in the future.

    I have the blue footwell illumination that came with my 2010 3. Is there anyway to keep that illumination on other than just when shutting the car off? Is there also anyway to make it a little brighter?
