    Mazda 3 2015, weird air conditioning behavior. When I set airflow mode to dashboard only I get air blowing from dashboard + floor. When I set airflow mode to dashboard + floor I get air blowing from dashboard only. Any idea what would be the problem? Sorry if this sounds so vague but I'm...

    I cannot discern from the manual how the Auto On mode interacts with the temperature control. Here's the situation... it's getting hot out and I want to set the driver's temp to (for example) 62 degrees. I press Auto On and set the temp. The response is that the A/C goes on and the fan is...

    Hi everyone, I just recently bought my Mazda 3 2016 Sport GS in Canada. This is the middle model. I have seen photos where sport mode should be. Yet, there is no button there (in front of the shift nob). I have an automatic transmission, it should be there, should it not? Thanks in advance...

    So I've been in the process of getting my '14 sGT Auto tuned for a few months now. While I can definitely feel the power in Normal driving mode, somehow flicking it over to Sport mode greatly (and I mean GREATLY) improves throttle response and overall rev-happy sportiness. What's going on here...

    So my driver side headlight wasn't turning on and I opened the hood and twisted the light until it came back on. I always do that for my passenger headlight when it acts up but this was a first for the driver side one. I got it back on again but then the dash and console lights for the night...

    Anybody having this issue? If I put the display in DAY mode the screen is bright. If I put it in NIGHT, the screen is dim, if I put it in AUTO, it just stays bright no matter the brightness outside.

    My car was in 'fresh air' mode in a parking lot by grass during the work day and I come in to spiderwebs everywhere! After cleaning them up and driving home, a spider lands on me and I try my hardest not to flinch and swerve :( Is fresh air mode letting them in? How can I make sure this never...

    In my limited experience with car stereos connected to my various Apple devices via USB, there are usually two flavors of controls: "Smart" mode, or head-unit control mode, wherein the HU displays track data, can access and play songs and playlists on your device, etc. ...and... "Dumb" mode...

    The accelerator kickdown gets on my nerves while driving in manual mode. On twisty back roads I would love to use full throttle without the transmisson downshifting. Does this bother anyone else?

    Hi Guys, i know this is not safe but would like to get your input on how to disable the safety feature on the dvd playback while in drive mode so that the passenger can watch movies? The firmware version is V33. Thanks....

    On previous cars I've owned, there's usually a way to enter a diagnostic or maintenance mode by holding down a specific button when starting the car. From there, you can see things like exact engine RPM, exact coolant temp, etc. obviously different per car. Is there an equivalent on the Mz3...

    It looks like the sport mode is noticeable in Drive mode, but I was wondering if there's any difference in manual mode. I drive in manual mode and I don't see any difference. They don't explain much what differences the sport mode has.

    Just wondering....does anything happen if you use the paddle shifters while the transmission is in 'Drive' rather than manual mode?

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows why my infotainment system does not switch from day to night mode automatically when it's on auto? I've seen that it's affected by the max brightness setting on auto, but I have it either right in the middle or below the middle and it doesn't affect it...

    Hi all, Got my self a brand new mazda3 2013 GS skyactiv 6/AT about a month and half ago put on 1400km (870 miles). Was driving yesterday when all of a sudden car started shuttering/jitters when accelerating... check engine light and traction control light came on... could not get pass 20 km/h...

    What does the speed mode button (w/AT trim) actually change... I mean besides causing "sport" to alight on the dash:cheesy:? Perhaps someone can provide a description that references engine/transmission/traction control strategy and relates that to specific features of the driving...

    So if you type valet mode / lockout and 2014 Mazda3 into google it comes up a ton of times... however if you search for it in the manual you get nothing... anyone know what it is, how it works, and where to find it :)? Thanks in advance!

    In Sport mode (on 2.5s SGT) Besides holding gear longer and also holding gear while in the corners, does it also improve throttle response as well? I wasn't able to find anything from Mazda stating this but I have noticed the throttle response in Sport mode is much stronger, the car will pull...

    I've been a member on here for a while but never post, just look up DIY's and stuff like that. But I've been having a problem lately with my sub and amp install. I'll admit I'm not an expert with it at all but I've must have installed a good 6-7 systems in my car over the years with little to no...
