  1. 2007 Mazda 3 shift position indicator

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    When I place my automatic shift lever in Drive, the on-dash display sometimes goes blank and the transmission feels like it has shifted into another gear. I can't tell which since there's no display. Wiggling the shifter makes the display come back on and everything is fine for a while. Then it...

  6. CKP/CMP Camshaft position sensor differences

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Apparently the Mazda 3 has 2 CMP sensors (intake and exhaust), but also has a CPK camshaft sensor. What does the CPK sensor do? NEVER MIND - CPK is crankshaft position sensor.

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    Hello, I've recently been having some shifter issues with my 2005 Mazda 3. A few weeks ago I started having issues with my car not being able to turn over. I noticed that the dash was not displaying the vehicle in "PARK". I was given instructions to use a screw driver in the interlock hole to...

  9. Windshield Wipers Position

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I did a search of the forums and didn't find an answer to this, hoping you guys can help. Does my passenger side wiper need to be adjusted? It seems to be sitting quite high on the windshield and I was wondering if everyone else's car was like this too. This is a 2015 Mazda 3 i Touring I...
  10. Clutch Position Sensor : Bucking Bronco

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    First off, clutches can have two sensors on the pedal. Our 2105 2.0 Mazda3 has a clutch position sensor that will cut off the cruise control when you barely push in on it. Our car has 3k miles. My problem is the clutch position sensor is actually controlling the throttle by wire system in first...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    On my 2014 Mazda 3sGT the Lumbar support will not stay all the way pushed in place but pops out after a few minutes. I really need the support for my back. According to my dealer they "have not been able to recreate it". Anbody else have that problem? Anybody had it fixed?
  12. Yet to find a comfortable seating position

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2010 3i Touring with the 5 speed. The issue is I have to actively hold my foot off the gas when cruising for extended periods. When I lower the seat all the way and/or raise it there is still space between my thigh and the seat so when in a relaxed position I wind up accelerating. If I...

  14. Folding the Mirrors in and Back out Shifts their Position

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    First off, I'm absolutely loving my new Mazda3 hatch. So I feel a bit bad about pointing out a minor annoyance, but it exists none the less: If you fold in the side mirrors (as I often do...darn city living) then fold them back out, the mirrors aren't in the same position that they were when...
  15. Adjusting Shifter Position

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I searched around and couldn't find an answer to my question. I found this: Jamiesplanet.com but I dont think that's what I need. That seems to move the shifter from left to right. I installed a JBR short shift plate and bushings. They're great. But, I want to see if its possible to move the...
  16. How to position SUB(S)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a single 10" kicker solo baric in seal box and was wondering which way the sub should face. Toward the front(backseat) or lift gate. I've tried them both but can't seem to tell the difference. However, it doesn't sound as good/loud as I would like or thought it would be for the kicker...

  18. Engage sound when turning key to run position

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello - I noticed a sound that seems to be coming from the rear of the car when I turn the key into the run position but before I start the car. It sounds like a small electric motor or pump engaging so I suppose it could be the fuel pump ...if the fuel pump is located in the back? Anyways...
  19. Door able to open in locked position?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just got an auto i-touring a week ago. I noticed I can open the driver's and front passenger's doors from the inside even when it's running while the doors are in the locked position. Wouldn't this be a safety issue? I took it to the dealer and they said it's normal and there's no way to...
