Question about 2006 Mazda 3
Did you ever find a place to fix your Information Display on your Mazda3? I too have the same problem. My display went out about a month ago and my car is no longer under warranty. After reading all of the other complaints about the same problem, I say it's faulty equipment! Mazda should replace this for free, since it's a very common problem.
This really works...the fuse that controls the Information display power is the one labelled "ROOM" (15Amp). It is located under the hood in the engine fuses.
I didnt even replace mine, I simply scraped off the dirt/rust from the metal portion and reinserted it. If this doesnt work, test the ROOM port with a functional fuse switch (I used the one labelled HORN, 15amp). If it works with the switch, you have a good part, but need a new fuse.
Free solution to an expensive problem...if you dont know whats wrong.

Just had the same problem- simply removed and cleaned the fuse (31) for ROOM under bonnet next to battery and it worked first time - great forum for honest excellent advice

This is my step by step guide for fixing this problem.
Remove The room fuse.
Carefully spray WD40 into the sockets of the removed fuse.
leave it for 10 minutes.
start the car with the fuse removed.and then stop
Clean the fuse pins well with WD40 and ensure the colour is correct, or insert a new 15amp fuse.
place the fuse back in the socket
it will work then

I ended up getting the part off of ebay and replacing it myself. $29 + shipping as opposed to the almost $300 the Mazda dealer wanted to charge. Replacement was simple and took all of 5 minutes and 2 screws.
If you can find the part, contact me back and I'll make sure you have good directions to replace it.

I had the same exact problem -just removed the 15 A fuse and put it back in ... the display worked (again). Didnt use WD40. thank you to the originator of the post and everybody who contributed.

I wound up taking it to the dealer. They removed the display and re-inserted it, said the problem was a bad connection, and sent me on my way. I'm still a little leery, but it's been working fine since, and that's been almost two months so far. Hopefully, the problem won't resurface, but if it does, I'll definitely try the fuse trick first. Thanks!
