  1. 2013 Type A - full random from USB drive?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Greetings. I purchased a 2013 that has the standard Type A Audio. I plugged in a thumb drive containing some MP3 folders and it appears that the unit allows for Random within a folder, but no full random (across folders). The user manual doesn't hint at a full random capability either. Can...
  2. Random rattles and squeaks coming from front (left and right)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Installed new BC coilovers and since then, I've heard random rattles and squeaks presumably coming from the front two coils. It's a soft rattle. Required to have nothing playing in the car in order to hear it. It's random because I can't recreate the sound by going over a bump or anything. It...

  4. '14 sGT Climate Control Random Max Heat

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Was driving the car today and noticed it was getting quite warm in the cabin with the windows down. I always keep the thermostat at 68, A/C Off. But today I look down and it increased by itself to 88 degrees without me touching knobs. It has done this once before, but I thought it was a fluke...
  5. Random now works

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Bought me '15 SGT HB in November of last year. Shortly afterward I made a USB of my music and plugged it in. I set the USB to play all songs and in random order. Like many others here whenever I started the car if would default to the repeat option even though I always would set it to the random...
  6. Audio system random resets

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have had this happen three times now. The audio system on my 2015 3i Touring with Bose system completely resets...the clock is on some odd hour and different time zone, all the radio favorites are gone, bluetooth connections are gone as well. Has anybody else seen anything like this? Seems to...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I have v33. I have the following issues: - each time I restart the engine, the "shuffle" setting is lost and "repeat" setting is activated. - songs play in the same order even on "shuffle" - I have thousands of songs but I hear the same each and every time - by now I can see the song order...
  8. Random Hole in Passenger Rear Chassis - Damage or Stock?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Drove over a nail and had a flat today. While I was changing the spare, I noticed a hole in the chassis behind the wheel. Since I only saw this in the passenger rear, I assume it's damage from a rock or something that popped a piece off. It's a 2013 hatchback. I'm assuming it's not a big...
  9. random bolt

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Ok so came home from work today and seen this bolt laying in the driveway. Don't have access to ramps or anything atm and curious if anyone knows where it could have fallen off (it may not even be from the car) just rather be safe than sorry.

  12. Seek track does not play next random song

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    When I turn the knob/hit next track on my stock radio while it's in USB/iPod mode on random, it doesn't play the next "random" song, but the next song in the list in the usb folder. Listening to the song until the end will play the next random song, just not if I seek track. Does anyone know...

  19. Random beeping

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    All of the sudden after having my car sit running in park for 10minutes or so while I cleaned it off I started driving and now have random beeps coming from the dash. This happens even with the radio off. Anyone have any ideas? No lights are on on the instrument panel.
  20. Random Tech: P0101 CEL - MAF Malfunction

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    I've had two customers now who ran into the P0101 code with their intake installations. I want to put some info out so that if people get this code, they'll know what to look for. The code is a MAF Sensor Circuit Malfunction. It is triggered when the MAF readings are out of scale for longer...
