  1. Mazda 3 2019 GS Safety and Driver Support Systems temporarly disabled

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I am getting this warning in daytime and at night. It will go on and very rarely it goes off while driving. Sometimes my mirrors will still indicate someone in my blind spot when warning is up sometimes it doesnt. I asked the dealer and they said either it can be sunlight (which i doubt) or my...
  2. Charging System Malfunction.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Was leaving work today. I thought I heard the engine make a weird noise on startup. I shut the car off, but it ended up being something that fell in the place I work. Started the car up, everything was fine. When I put the car into reverse and was backing up, my infotainment screen displayed...
  3. Update On Auto Light Malfunction

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I remember seeing a few people mention the auto light system malfunction on hot days in their 2019s...Happened to me today. Spoke with Mazda and their response is that "Japan" is aware of it and do not have a fix but are working on it. His guess is that the sensor gets too hot and gives the...

    I have 2019 3 Sedan AWD. Twice now in the last couple of weeks it has displayed this message on screen "Vehicle System Malfunction Have the Car Inspected." Also the car went into some sort of limp mode - still runs, but at about 50% power. Today the car showed this message just after I left...

    Hey gang, Looking for some help here with the on-board diagnostics on my 2015 Mazda3. I took it to the local shop to get my registration renewed for the 1st time. As part of that, it needs a DEQ emissions test. When they administered the test, it threw back an error saying "OBD data does not...

  8. 2015 Mazda 3 TPMS and DSC/TCS malfunction

    Wife took off for work this morning just to come back 3 minutes later with the TPMS and DCS/TCS malfunction on. She parked the car running in the driveway, I got in, pressed the break pedal in and couldn't get it to shift into drive. I checked the tire pressure, all 4 were at where I topped...
  9. Engine System Malfunction

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I'm at 23k miles and the CEL just came on. The warning system gave an "Engine system malfunction" message which sounds pretty bad. I went to autozone to check the code and got a P0456 evap system (very small leak). A little research suggests a fuel cap is the most likely cause. In my case, I...

  13. Battery system malfunction

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2014 Mazda 3 25GT. I've recently been seeing these messages pop up. I haven't had any starting issues or anything, just the message. Sometimes when I turn the car off and on at a traffic light it will resolve itself. Any ideas?
  14. Security System malfunction

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    So I got a 2008 Mazda 3 about a year ago now and it just started to have a really annoying issue. First thing is for some reason if i press the unlock button on the key fob, all the doors unlock and this has never happened before. Next there are times where after pressing the unlock and nothing...

    Hey guys! I'm running a 2015 Mazda 3 GT Sport with the Tech Package - Bi Xenon headlights with the Adaptive Front Lighting system. The lights are supposed to come across, dip down once, and come across when shining regularly. However, as you can see in the picture there are two dips (like a...

    I have a 2010 Mazdaspeed 3. When it gets below -4C or so outside my power steering stops working, my light comes on in dash and it won't start working until the outside temperature comes up again. The dealer checked my wires and cleaned them up a bit and of course by the time it left the warm...

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this, but I think it's electronics... My car was at the dealership to replace a fender. When I went to take it after, the proximity key entry didn't work, had to use the buttons on the key fob to unlock the car. Red key notification light is on...

  19. 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...
