  1. Caution when replacing trunk light with LEDs!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I saw another thread on this topic from back in 2016, but I was not aware of the issue until it was too late. This is actually on my 2015 Mazda 6, but it shares the same RBCM (KD45675Y0G) and wiring arrangement. A few days ago, I tried replacing my terrible trunk light with a strip of LEDs, and...
  2. Headlights: 2014-16 HIDs vs 2017-18 LEDs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello everyone: I am looking at buying a 3rd gen Mazda 3 GT sedan. One of the biggest selling points for me of the GT over the lower trim levels are the upgraded headlights. As we're all well aware of, the refresh in 2017 introduced all-LED lighting for the front headlights and a departure from...

    Hi peeps, I have installed some new license plate leds from vleds lately. After that I have experienced a lot of DAB issues “no signal, change the essemble” So I investigated this further and noticed when I leave my head and tail lights off, DAB works immediately. If I switch the head lights...

  9. LEDs Halos as DRL?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    My 17 GT has LED headlights however the main beams are set to run as DRLs (with reduced light output) which is kind of annoying, especially in the daytime. Is there a way to re-code the headlights such that DRLs are the halos like the European Mazda 3 models? I know there is a trick of turning...

  11. LED low beams and high beams - wattage output

    Exterior Lighting
    I can't seem to find the specs on my 2012 Mazda 3 (sedan) wattage output for headlights. I just bought LEDs for both low beams and high beams. Problem is that it looks like they run at 160w and I don't think the output on for the headlights reach that wattage. What can I do to bypass the...

  13. Switchback LEDs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Do you guys think its possible to install switchback LED's for the front turn signals where it can act as a DRL while the vehicle is turned on (white) and have the amber turn signal functionality? Since the turn signals on our cars only turn on while using the turn signal is this even possible...
