Classic problem....car goes to the shop to get problem A fixed. problem's solved..an hour later I found out something unrelated is now messed up..before going to the shop, it was working fine...don't know what happened....shop owner says that they had nothing to do with it...
Anyways, here are the details; I gave my car to the have the clutch fixed. They do a decent job with the clutch (and charge a decent amount as well) but I discover within a hald hour of taking delivery of the car that the headlights won't turn on. When I use the turn signals, all lights inside the car start flickering. And when I try to turn on the headlights all lights start flickering and make a wierd kind of sound. Of course, the shop doesn't want to take any responsibility for anything that might have happened while they fixed the clutch. Oh one more thing, when I start the car in the morning, the clock needs to be reset. It seems to be unable to keep the time eversince it came back from the shop. Has anyone experienced this issue with their vehicle? Will appreciate advice/a pointer in the right direction. Thanks!!

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.
Thanks for the question, I had a similar problem with the headlights turning on and off.
What you need to do is just check the earthing inside the bonnet , usually it's to the right hand side when you stand facing your vehicle and is placed near one of the headlights.
Just ensure that the earthing is tight and not loose and your problem will be solved.
If you don't want to do it yourself, just don't worry go to a mechanic and tell him to fix the earthing as your headlight is turning on and off and he will know that you are knowledgeable and won't take advantage of you by cheating you.
If this does not work then just check one of the electric cutouts that belong to the headlights and then just ensure that they are fitted perfectly.
Hi, what you are currently witnessing is a wiring problem which maybe as a result of some melted wires coming in touch with one another therefore bridging and performing the functions of one another just like the a/c coming up whenever you put on the headlight.
You need to, if electrically inclined check the wires to see where the bridge of contact is occurring or where you have bad wire to replace them or take it to the Auto shop where it can be fixed...
take it back to mazda and get it looked at.
mine is the same goes off for no reason when i lock the car mazda do not know what is causing the problem but get your name down on the list for the parts when they do work it out because by the sounds of it every mazda 2 is going to have to have the alarm fixed when they solve the problem
