    Hi, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 i touring sedan w SkyActiv bought in Canada. My owner's manual (and several threads) say I should be able to change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit using the info button. Problem is my car doesn't have an info button (it's a blank non-pushable button where...

    Hi, does any one knows a way to calibrate the outside temperature measurement show on the dashboard ? I own Mazda 3 2017, and there is about 4 degrees deviation on the measurement of outside temperature from the actual value. is there something that I can do ? Thanks Felix

    My Mazda 3 has a tendency to steam up on cold days. The result is that when its very cold, you get ice form on the inside of the windscreen. Got in the car yesterday, there was ice on the inside of the windscreen (and outside), but the external temperature gauge said 1 deg C. Now, the law of...

    hello, I have the last version for EU installed. Everything is working fine, inclusive the WiFi connection to hotspots. I have installed some tweaks : - loop for main menu - pictures for buttons But I've encountered some strange behaviour this days. When the outside temperature is lower than...

    Hello all, I just bought a 2008 mazda 3 i Touring with 124,000 miles on it. I just started noticing that my temperature gauge will begin to climb in steady intervals past the half-way point. If I blast the heat I can get it to drop back down to normal operating temperatures. The strange thing...

    I have a 2016 2.0 , but it seems to be running cold. I have monitored the engine temperature with my ODBII/Torque App. I have a 35-40 minute drive with 50/50 city/HWY driving. I noticed that it take a extremely long time for the blue light to go off, and it usually goes off at around 130F...

    The temperature shown on the display to the right of the tach always shows my temperature as 78 degrees Fahrenheit, which is not accurate. Is there a way to recalibrate?

    My car is clearly misstating the temperature outside, as it's been hotter here in the pacific northwest. It will be 85-92°F outside and my car will display 100-104°F. Is there a way to recalibrate it? Anyone else have wrong temperature readings?

    Hi all. I'm a newbie and I was wondering if it's normal for the blue temp light to come on when I start my car? I live in the Bay Area so it doesn't get that cold at night. I've never had a car do that before. The blue temp light stays on for a few minutes then shuts off. Oh and when I open the...

    Does anyone know what the normal temperature range (coolant temperature, I mean) is supposed to be? Like, when does the red light come on? I've been using "Torque" on my phone to read a bunch of OBDII data while driving, and one of the ones I was most excited about was the coolant...

    For those up to the challenge! I got some mechanical gauges for oil pressure and water temperature. I found out where to install the water temp gauge however it is electronic and upon disconnect threw a check engine light and low coolant temperature light (the blue water light) and the fan kept...

    Hi all! I have been a happy Mazda owner for 2 days now. Love it! I am just wondering about the outisde temperature gauge, which seems to be 2 or 3 degrees off all the time. Is there a way to calibrate it? Is this normal? Thanks!

    Is anyone else concerned with the lack of Engine Temperature information in the vehicle? (Maybe I'm a noob and havn't found it yet....) It's nice to know when the vehicle has gotten to it's optimal engine temp. Then I know it's safe to flog it around.
  15. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Just curious if anyone has had any issues with the ambient temperature reading in the MID? I have had the car more than 5 months without any hint of a problem, but today I noticed that the outdoor ambient temp reading seemed to be stuck at 79 F, and I'm sure the actual temp was in the 90s. I...

    This is a really strange anomaly - I had the Sirius DLP unit installed in my 3 GT 4-door and now for some reason the outside temperature always reads the same (72 degrees). All the other data changes (like the very useful Current MPG - bah!) and "Miles Remaining" but the temperature part of the...
