  1. 2012 Mazda 3 grand touring - starts in on

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Probably a stupid question, but here I am asking it anyway. So basically what the title says. When I turn the ignition key to start the car, the key only makes it to the "on" position before the starter engages. The computer engages the starter until the engine starts then disengages the...
  2. Android Auto suddenly stopped working and no longer starts

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I've had Android Auto running for a bit over a year now. I have AA 1.08 installed on my 2015 Mazda3 with firmware 59.00.441A-NA. Just yesterday I upgraded my Sony Xperia X Compact from Android 7.1.1 to Android 8.0.0. I had to reboot the phone and CMU in order to get it to connect the first...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello everyone! I need some help... I bought a water damaged Mazda 3 2014. I believe it has advance keyless entry because it has the dark plasticlike buttons on the door handles. (please excuse me if a say something incorrectly, I'm no expert sadly, and new...) When I got the car I unlocked...

    Just got the notification that my tune kit has shipped and will arrive tomorrow (9/16/16). I`ll be right around the corner from the Dyno shop today, so I`m going to stop in and see if I can schedule a series of runs to chronicle the tune improvements and get real world results. I`m sure the...

  11. USB input starts from square one on start up

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I guess Mazda intended that whatever is plugged into the USB port(s) must start from the top of the catalog every single time the car is turned on? I noticed that appeared to be SOP with an iPod, but it seems to apply also to a memory stick. Oddly, the memory stick picked up where it left off...

  14. cold weather slow starts

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anyone elses mazda start very slow and a little rough in the cold? The other thing is my car gets driven only about 1.5 miles each way to the train station 5 days a week. I think its the perfect distance to drain the battery from the starts but not have enough time to charge. However, I...
