  2. Caution when replacing trunk light with LEDs!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I saw another thread on this topic from back in 2016, but I was not aware of the issue until it was too late. This is actually on my 2015 Mazda 6, but it shares the same RBCM (KD45675Y0G) and wiring arrangement. A few days ago, I tried replacing my terrible trunk light with a strip of LEDs, and...

    Does anyone here know how to access the trunk light assembly? My 08 sedans light sucked into the slot and I've tried needle nose pliers to try to get it back out, but all it's done is push the assembly back in further. Is there another access point on this vehicle?

    OK ... I have been trying to fix the trunk/cargo light in my 2015 Mazda 3 i grand touring for weeks now and can't seem to get it to work. I initially removed the stock bulb to replace it with an LED. Apparently the LED was the wrong size but I didn't realize that and try to force it in the...

  10. Firmware 70.00.021 and trunk opening

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback with key proximity sensors ("Advanced Keyless Entry"). After installing the 70.00.021 firmware I experienced a change in behavior with respect to the trunk opening that seems like a bug and I wonder if others could confirm it. With older firmwares (I had 55 and...

  12. Electronic Boot/Trunk Latch Not Working

    My 3 has developed an intermittent problem, wondering if anyone else has had the same issue? When I unlock my car, if I want to go straight into the boot/trunk occasionally the button does not work (yes I have checked that the car is unlocked and pressed the unlock key again). BUT it will open...
  13. Only 7.6V at the trunk light socket

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    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...

    Hello fellow MZ3 owners. I have been searching all over the internet hoping to find someone that has done a DIY trunk light upgrade.

  17. 2018 Mazda3 Trunk IS NOT FLAT!!! Ahh!!!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    This goes into the category of pet peeve. It really bothers me. I feel like this is bad engineering. And I feel like it's probably an easy fix. The picture below shows the inside of my 2018 M3 trunk. It doesn't lie flat. There is a section to the left and right that are BELOW the center...
  18. Question about hatchback's trunk

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Is there absolutely no way to open the trunk from the front? The reason I ask is because when I got dropped off at the airport, I couldn't open the trunk since I didn't have the key. My dad had to physically get out of the car since he had the key on him to open the trunk for me. So is the only...
  19. Mazda 3 hatchback remote trunk release

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi! I was wondering, whether there's an option to remote open the trunk of the hatchback. I have seen a video of a MK7 VW Golf hatch pop kit upgrade. Of course it would require struts with strong springs, but also some OBD coding to enable popping the trunk via the keyfob. Not sure such thing...
