Hello everyone, I own a 14 Mazda 3 S GT Hatchback and would like to know how to remove/delete AFS for my car through coding on forscan? Thanks. The flashing afs light on my IC is driving me insane!!

When AFS light is flashing - it means that there's a malfunction with it. Have you tried looking for any error codes?

One light is aftermarket and the other is oem. The aftermarket light is giving me swivel actuator code errors. I do not want to spend over $600 for a headlight when it works fine except the AFS. So removing AFS to me is the best way right now. Thanks

You might have to initialize the AFS module. Either at the Mazda Dealer (via their system MMDS) or via shortening 2 pins in the OBD2 (=DLC-2) connector. I had to do that when I replaced my AFS module with an ALH module when switching headlights.

That's how it was for my CX-5 KE 2016. I don't know if it's the same for your Mazda. Imitate at your own risk.

Initialize the headlamp alignment motors by shorting the OBD2 connector. Pins B and J must be connected three times in a row. 1. Connected: 0.5-1.5 seconds 2. Not connected: 0.5-1.5 seconds 3. Connected: 0.5-1.5 seconds 4. Disconnect: 0.5-1.5 seconds 5. Connected: 0.5-1.5 seconds 6. Not connected: Pull it out.

Edit: See also this official info for a CX-5 2012-2014 for more details:

Thanks for the info. I believe what you want me to do is a recalibration for the AFS module right? If so I already did that with no luck on a Maxsys Scanner. Same errors appear still.

If you want to delete AFS from the IC module, have you checked the IC module in 720-04-14 b4-b6 ? Could be worth a try to do b4=0 b5=1 b6=0 to disable AFS. See SergSlims signature for the link to the XLS. And remember to also change 720-01-01 (automatically calculated checksum) if you change 720-04-14.

Can you let me know what new value I would have to put to disable afs? And where exactly on forscan? Thanks.
