    Could anyone please help me locate all of the grounding points under the hood? I only know of the battery ground for sure. I believe the rest are throttle body.. fuse box.. engine.. transmission? I'll need to check them all and the related cables to try and resolve my sluggish startup issues...

    Within the past few months I have been experiencing a headache with my phone connecting to the car when i first turn the car on. It appears to auto connect fine and start playing last audio (spotify, google play music or it will play the phone call im on as i turned the car on) but then it will...

    My less that 2 mos old 17 GT, once in a while has a long Mazda logo display and it delays the backup camera from working. Anyone else has this and a fix? Thx

    About 1/15 times, my car wouldn't startup for some reason. I've replaced the car battery recently and the problem still persists. Could it be a Fob battery issue? When I depress the brake pedal to start my car, the push to start button blinks amber, and if i press it, only the accessories come...

    Never mind, turns out I did not set an AP and password. Me being an idiot.

    My girlfriend bought a second hand 2007 Mazda 3, automatic transmission, with ~124,000km on the clock, a few weeks ago. This weekend after driving in the Rockies, we noticed a wheezing, metallic rattling noise at startup. Sound goes away after a couple of seconds, but during the engine turnover...

    I started my car to go to work, everything is going good. Then I stopped off to put air in my tire, started my car again and it just wouldn't start :surprise: .I kept trying 6-7 times then it finally started so i was a bit relieved. :| Now today I dropped my mom off at work car started great...

    I have a 2014 Mazda3 with about 17k miles. When I first give the car gas after startup, I hear a series of creaks coming from somewhere under the engine bay (I think). Again, it only happens after I put the car in D and apply my foot on the accelerator for the first time. I don't hear any other...

    For the past few weeks I've had long startup times in my 2010 Mazdaspeed 3. I'll get in and push the button and it takes a lot longer to crank the engine that it should. It only seems to do it once the car has been sitting for several hours. If I drive, park somewhere for a while, then start...

    Got greeted with the following 'Warning Guidance' message (under Applications) after starting my engine this morning. I drove to work anyways (didn't notice anything unusual). After I parked, I turned off the engine and restarted it to see if the below would appear - it did not. 'Auto...

    Before I start digging too much - wanted to see if anyone has researched if it is possible to alter the MZD files so that the volume level is reset to a known level when starting the car rather than the last volume? The use case is listening to podcasts for example - normally you'd have the...

    So I've had this problem for a while, and figured I'd ask around while I'm still under factory warranty. A good percentage of the times I start up my car (2014, iTouring w/ Tech), the passenger-side door speaker will give an audible low-band pop, like as if you were plugging in an instrument to...

    This isn't really a problem it's just weird. The last few times I've started my car (in the cold), the CD player ejects. I just push it in and it will play just fine. But it has never ejected on its own accord before. Maybe it is feeling too chilly? :001_unsure:

    I'm going to disable the motion restriction for the infotainment tomorrow. I wanted to minimize the time on the start-up message as well. How do I go about this?

    Its really annoying all the time to see the "warning" everytime you start the car

    Hiya, I finally installed the H11 ELITE MORIMOTO HID today with a help of a friend on my 2012 Skyactive, unfortunately the HID's are flickering for about 1-2 secs on startup. Once it's on and after 1-2 seconds then it's solid and doesn't flicker at all. I got the 35W with heavy duty relay...

    I've done quite a bit of searching around the forum and on google for this issue, and can't find anything that sounds like this. At first I thought it was knocking, but found some other videos, and all of them sounded different. Then I heard about "piston slapping" and don't know if that's what...
