  1. AC Turning Itself On Randomly

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    My 2017 has started to do something extremely strange. Whenever I have my AC turned completely off, it will randomly turn on the AC light and blow air at max speed out of whatever vents the knob is set to. I thought this was an isolated incident when it first happened, however it's began to do...
  2. Horn honks when turning off motor

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Last winter the battery on my 2016 Mazda 3 went dead. It was recharged and since then when I turn off the engine the horn honks twice, loudly. Also loud honks when arming and disarming vehicle. I replaced the battery and still have the same problem. This only happened since the dead battery...
  3. Popping when turning

    Suspension / Brakes
    So within the last week or so I've noticed popping when I turn the wheel past about 1/4th and then back in line. Only happens while in drive and normally after I've moved a few feet. I've read somewhere that someone else had this issue as well and found out it was the struts. I wanted to ask...
  4. Keep radio from turning off after 30 minutes

    Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    Hi all, I own a 2016 Mazda 3 and tonight we went to a drive-in that transmits the movie's audio via FM radio instead of those old-school speakers you hang on your car window. After turning the engine off I pushed the ON button twice to turn on the electronics so we could use the radio. However...
  5. Thunking when turning

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Our 2016 Mz3 has a "thunk" noise when turning. It seems to be in the driver's seat. Wife used to not get it. Now, she says she gets it. Have checked the left rear pocket where we keep a foldup umbrella. Have packed around it and even taken it out. Not that. Even snapped the left rear seat...

  7. Whirring Noise After Turning Engine Off

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I notice there is a whirring noise from the engine bay of my 2.0 petrol Mazda 3 for about 30 secs after the engine is turned off. What is this? It sounds like a pump running perhaps to pressurise the fuel line?

    Hi all, I've recently purchased a 2017 Mazda 3 5door Touring. Is there a way to roll down the windows without turnin on the ignition? By that I mean pressing the start button twice without holding the brake pedal. When I do that I can hear what i presume to be the fuel pump coming on. Is there...
  9. Turning off A/C before turning off car.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So my parents keep insisting that if I have A/C on, drive it, then turn the car off without turning the A/C off, I'm going to "Blow the compressor". I'm a little sketchy on this whole idea. Is there are truth to it at all? I drive a 2014 Mazda3 Sport btw.

  11. How to disable the honk when turning off the engine?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm kind of annoyed how the car honks twice when you turn off the engine, and seems especially loud when coming home late at night and hearing it honk in the garage. Not to mention I plan to install Hella horns which just make the honks even louder. Does anyone know how to disable the double...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Recalls / TSB / SSB
    This week my wife took her '14 3i Touring into the dealer for a clunk we've noticed on it for the past couple of months. It seemed to come from the driver's side when turning left, and was worse when going over bumps. I jacked it up and didn't see or feel anything loose so we didn't rush to...

    How does one turn off the feature that displays upcoming roads and intersections on the MZD Connect screen? There are often times where I have/want the screen completely off, but this vehicle will still flash an upcoming road even with navigation guidance and screen off.
