My 2006 mazda 3 sedan has had an issue of losing correct time since my first year of owning it. It's the correct time in the display for about a week and then it's off by like a half an hour. Also my glove box light just stopped working for me, any tips?

You need to find the root cause of the problem, otherwise you will not fix it or it will return. A few things come to mind.
Check the wiring around the starter. Look for damaged wires, burned wires, or connectors not plugged in. Strange things happen with vehicles if parts of the harness that should be connected aren't.
The other thing I wonder is that when the starter was replaced, the battery was probably disconnected, which can cause problems in its own right, but they may have left the power connected and a wire that was live, touched somewhere. Try disconnecting the battery overnight, don't do it on a day when you have to get to work. Disconnecting the battery for that length of time will fully reset the engine management computer.
If none of that fixes it, you need the services of an auto-electrician.
My audio and clock display stopped working all of a sudden. The audio system still worked fine. I had all my fuses checked previously and was told it could cost up to $800 to fix by Mazda. I pulled out fuse 31 and wiped it clean, reinserted it and now my display works as good as new. Thanks to those on this site for your help.
