Question about 2006 Mazda 3

Mazda 3 Information Display

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.

    I'd be very grateful for details on how to solve this myself. My car's still under warranty, but if I can fix this simply and inexpensively, I'd rather not have to go through the hassle of getting the dealer involved.

    buttrrrreeed was absolutely correct. I just went out to my car and went under the hood, took out the ROOM (#31) fuse, wiped it off and put it back in....and guess what??? I freakin worked!! Thanks dude!!! You rock!! What ever you do...do not take you car to the dealership until you have tried this first.

    Thanks again!!

    The information Display of my 06 Mazda 3, has gone crazy. It just displays all kinds of numbers all over. But the radio and AC seem fine.
    I tried removing, wiping, switching fuse 31 (room fuse), no solution.
    I tried unplugging the battery, no solution.
    I will have to go to the dealer tomorrow :(

    Thanks to the experts for solving this one. I was fearing a pricey repair but after reading the solution here I popped out the fuse, wiped it off and put it back in. The display came on when I turned the key. PTL!

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.

    Where exactly is the fuse box ? Sorry i'm new this - thanks in advance

  • Robert B Smith Oct 18, 2011

    Yup, I'm another one with the same issue in Canada, pulled the fuse (room) cleaned off, reinstalled it, and now all is fine. Thank. Having worked in Dealership service depts for over 30 years, we need to tell Dealers about this, it IS possible the frt desk staff are not aware of it. Thankyou again. Bob

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

Don't know how you figured it out... but wiping off the Room 15A fuse worked! Thank you so much for sharing!

  • Jo202 Nov 19, 2010

    Thank you everyone, you've just saved me a fortune.
    I wiped the fuse also and it's working again.

    Mazda told me that I needed a new display panel and when I asked where the fuse was located they told me there wasn't one that operates the display!!!!! 'tut tut'

    I'll never trust the service department again ;-(

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 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!

What model year transmission is compatible with a 2005 Mazda 3 sport


From Wikipedia.. "The Mazda3 or Mazda 3 (known as the Mazda Axela in Japan) is a compact car manufactured in Japan by the Mazda Motor Corporation. It was introduced in 2003 as a 2004 model, replacing the Familia/323/Proteg?. A performance-oriented version of the Mazda3 is marketed as the Mazdaspeed3 in North America, Mazdaspeed Axela in Japan and the Mazda3 MPS in Europe.
A second generation Mazda3 for the 2010 model year was unveiled in late 2008, with the sedan premiering at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the hatchback at the Bologna Auto Show. For the 2012 model year, Mazda began offering the Mazda3 with their newly developed SkyActiv technology, including a more rigid body, a new direct injection engine, and a new 6-speed transmission.[6]
The current third generation was introduced in mid-2013 as a 2014 model." My guess is the transmission from 2004 to 2009 mike be cross compatible. I would go to Autozone and ask or call the parts department at department at a local Madza dealer.
