Question about 2006 Mazda 3
Mazda 3 - Climate control is stuck at 18 degree celcius, fuses are all fine. Is there any way to repair this as the dealership has quoted me R13 000 to replace the whole unit.
It seems like the knob does not respond when it's turned to adjust the temperature.
I had that, got a new unit from incurance company scrapyard for $80, changin it was $20 and when opening the old one (the knob is a potentiometer) there was just excess oil between contact surfaces... Local M dealer gave me an estimate of $1500+job

Ms Terry, sounds like I have the same problem on my 2006 Mazda 3. They want to charge me $900+ just for the part, and my warranty will not cover it.
What do I need to do to see if mine also has the excess oil/contact issue? I am not afraid to attempt to fix this myself even though I am not a car expert, but I am very common sense! (I've done numerous "aftermarket fun things to my car successfully before).
Do I just pull the knob until it pops off? Although the heater doesn't work, thank goodness the A/C works (I live in hot So CA) so I don't want to break the unit altogether.
Please please help this chick out.. in this economy I'm too busy getting pay cuts to be able to afford replacing a $900 part, and because a 4 year old car's warranty refuses to cover this!

The radio screws holding the radio are not tight enough. to eliminate this problem remove the radio and adjust the pressure screw in the rear of the radio so it comes out farther>. if the radio is not far enough in the compartment to push in that button the radio controls will not work

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.
