  4. How do you start your car? (Push Start/Stop Button)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone! I'm interested to know how you start your car up with the Push Start/Stop Button? When I started driving, my dad always told me when I plug my key in I should turn it step by step from Off to Acc to On then wait a couple of seconds before turning the key to start. My Mazda 3 is...

    Greetings, again! I said in my introduction thread, I'm probably gonna lay the questions on thick, and I'm itching to start with one that I've posted twice in the r/mazda3 subreddit.

  7. GT Badge and Push to Start Button Ring

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, has anyone found a GT Badge that somewhat matches the Mazda badges for the trunk? I have found some (have the SGT) but most are too big, or do not match the font at all. The other piece of my question is the push to start button ring. It really bothers me that Mazda decided to cheap out...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    My 2010 automatic has been stalling occasionally when I push the button to start it. It will turn over for longer than it should for the engine to turn on and then it will stall. If I start the process again, it has started (so far). Has anyone had this happen? Do you know what it might be...

  11. 2011 Mz3 with push button start... can I start my car and lock the doors?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    It's damn cold in MN right now so I have been starting my car in the morning, to let it warm up. I have a 2011 Mazda 3 GT 2.5L with the push button start. I know I can start the car and leave it running without the FOB in the car, but it will not let me lock the doors when it is running. Is...

    Does your push button start have metal/chrome trim around it? Mine doesn't. I saw it on a commercial and in the Smart Start Guide.

    Hey there. So I am working on a diy remote start system for my car that will be very subtle. What my intended goal is to be able to hit unlock, lock, lock on my remote and have my car start so that i dont need another remote fob. To get to that point, I have started doing hands on research...

    Not sure this is the right forum but, I have what I consider a Serious problem.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone know what it means when you start the car and the push button is orange instead of green? Then when I'm driving it flashes orange until the next time I turn off the car. I've noticed it doing this a couple times a month and it still runs fine, but I know the manual days to take it in...
  16. Push Button Start/ Stop Annoyance

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm still getting used to the Start/Stop Button coming from a keyed ignition in all my previous vehicles. It's nice to not have to take the fob out of my pocket and just start the car. My only gripe is that there is no time delay to keep accessories on after the car is shut off until the door is...

    I'd like to think I am a bit of a Google Ninja, but I can't seem to find any information about installing an Alarm system on a Mazda 3 and making sure I can keep all of the built in functionality I currently have. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?
