  1. Heater wasn't working after dealer installed homelink mirror.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    So I had the accessories installed recently that aren't in stock at time of purchase, this included the home link auto dimming mirror and they updated the firmware at the same time. The next day I tried to use the heater (after 15 minutes of driving) and the air wasn't warming at all regardless...
  2. Suspension installed 2018 GT HB

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Koni SA's, H&R's, Progress RSB soft setting done earlier today. The GRP end link threads stripped and my shop said the metal was soft. They had to install the OEM end links back on so I could get home. The rear GRP's went on fine, the fronts stripped. I would appreciate some other...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey so I purchased an Injen cold air intake (tuned intake) for my 2014 Mazda 3 2.0 ... installed it no problem, very easy obviously. About a week later the check engine light comes on throwing code P0171 .. so I loosen all clamps and re-position pipes and re-tighten everything.. light goes...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm new to this forum, so sorry if I placed this in the wrong thread. I have a Mazda 3 2012, and installed some aftermarket LEDs today. I took out the factory low and high beams without much trouble. However, when I was installing the aftermarket ones that I bought, I noticed I did not hear a...
  5. Installed Apple Carplay and now the airbag light on my dashboard blinks.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I just installed Apple Carplay today. Carplay works just fine but now the airbag light on my dashboard blinks. I am assuming I inadvertently did something to an airbag sensor, but do not recall. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? Incidentally, I did not disconnect the negative battery...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance

  7. Has anyone installed an "M1 Speed" RX-8 Spoiler on a 2nd Gen Mazda 3 Sedan

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I recently picked up a 2012 Mazda3 Sedan Skyactiv after a buddy of mine wrecked my 2010 Mazda3 Sedan. I would like to start adding in come tasteful subtle mods, so far interior leds are on. I would like to see how the sedan would look with that spoiler on and decide if its a hit or miss.
  8. Installed Wireless Charging

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all- I hate looking at my phone while in the car, and I can't stand cables, so I wanted a way to get everything out of sight. I installed a wireless phone charger in the center console of my 2015 3 hatch. I'll post a photo later if I get time. Here are the products I used: 1. Two port...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I decided to pull the trigger on some LED low beams from amazon.ca and gotta say i am quite happy. they were only 50$ so i wasnt expecting the most from them. I only bought low beams in case they werent great. i do intend to buy the hi beams and fogs now because they look good. Here is a video...
  11. Has anyone installed these fog light DRLs for 2017+ ms3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've seen these on eBay and they looks very nice especially since the turn signals are now LED. I'm reluctant to get these because I've seen zero install videos or guides, and was wondering if someone here has them and has installed them successfully. If so could you guys comment on how reliable...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Overall the process wasn't too bad. This was my first time installing a car stereo but from what I've seen pioneers/alpines should be similar. I tried adding links to the guides that helped me but I'm under the post limit. Parts you need Double din radio Metra 70-7903 Harness iDatalink RR...

    Wow. That's all I gotta say...
