  1. AC Turning Itself On Randomly

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    My 2017 has started to do something extremely strange. Whenever I have my AC turned completely off, it will randomly turn on the AC light and blow air at max speed out of whatever vents the knob is set to. I thought this was an isolated incident when it first happened, however it's began to do...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have had a terribly annoying, persistent issue with the Bluetooth audio in my 2015 Mazda 3. When I am making a call, the MazdaConnect will occasionally disconnect and then reconnect the call on the Bluetooth (in other words, the call isn't actually disconnected, just the Bluetooth). By...

  4. '18 Audio volume changes randomly

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey all, I've got a problem where the volume jumps from around 26 (my normal listening volume) to 36 at random times. It seems to be when I slow down and/or come to a stop, but not always. So while I thought it might be the touch screen re-enabling itself and dirt on the screen activating the...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey guys, so my check engine light came on randomly while I was driving on the highway, there was nothing I can say was happening when it went off.

  7. Mazda Connect Issues from Mazda Brethren: Audio Randomly Goes Away

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey All, Let me preface by saying that I don't have a Mazda 3, but I am having the weirdest issue with the Mazda Connect infotainment system in my 2016 Miata. You all seem to have the most domain knowledge regarding these systems, and since the software (and I'm guessing the hardware) is nearly...
