    Hi forum, first post here.. I got a dashcam and then realized that the accessory socket port is always on, so even if I turn off the ignition, it will still power the dashcam. That is of course unacceptable. I have been asking around for a potential solution for my Blackvue DR750S. Here are...

    RBCM replacement? (was "Only 7.6V at the trunk light socket") OK, all I can figure is I somehow screwed up the RBCM that supplies/controls the voltage to this socket. When the trunk is closed, the voltage from each side of the socket to ground goes to 12V (as it is supposed to). Upon opening...

    OK I give. What size of socket do you need to get the plugs out of the 2.0L? I have a 16mm, too big. Jimmied up a 14mm that seemed to fit my replacements. Even measured the replacements, 14mm. Doesn't fit the plugs in the car. Man Mazda really likes using some oddball sizes. Changed the gear...

    Hello, I just bought a 2015 Mazda 3 i Hatchback Touring. I'd like to add a cigarette lighter adapter that is powered in the accessory position rather than always on. I'm just wondering if people have determined the best place to wire this in (presumably either the center console or the arm...

    Would it be possible to make a plug and socket that would accept the input connector at the Bose amp (using the socket) and then make RCA outs as well as mate to the same kind of plug to continue into the Bose amp? It's a 16-pin connector (connector # 0920-322A). Let me know if this doesn't...

    Just a word of advice, so hopefully nobody else goes through what I went through today to change to winter tires. I bought a new set off Tire Rack and it came with lug nuts and a 13/16" socket with which to remove and install the lug nuts. Don't use the socket. Stick with the standard 21mm...

    Accessory Socket Problems!!!! I was going to pump up my tires, and my old compact compressor wouldn’t work. So I tried to unplug it from the socket in the front (below the air controls), and the damn thing wouldn’t budge. I ended up taking the whole dash apart with the gearshift and nothing...
