Question about 2006 Mazda 3 1.6

1 Answer

Mazda3 I have the stock Bose stereo in my 2006 Mazda3 and it recently stopped working. Started with loud popping sounds in the speakers, and then the whole thing quit working altogether. shortly afterwards, my car battery went bad and I had to have it replaced. Now I have a new battery, but the stereo still doesn't work. If I turn it on, all I get is static, and small popping sounds. Any thoughts?

Replace it . I have found to repair it costs more than a replacement.

Start by removing the colored strip which is over the radio display.
(best way is to open the glove box and get underneither it, the right end kind of hooks in at an angle while the left end locks in straight. so work your way to the left first and then the right)

once that is removed, you shuold see four (4) standard screws, remove and save them.
You must remove the top air vent piece, just tip up and pull forward gently.
You will have to disconnect the hazard switch plug also

the stereo set can now be removed by pulling forward gently.
Only two cables are connected to the unit, one can be pulled out, the other must be unclipped.

At this point the WHOLE UNIT including DISPLAY should come out of the console.

On mine, there were directions on how to install and uninstall the CD/MP3 player and if you flip it over you can see where the MINIDisc would go (if you don't have one)

That's it!

SOURCE: 06 mazda3 keyless remote programming instructions

It should be hit the unlock button 3 times, open and close the door 3 times, the locks will operate themselves twice. Hit the unlock button on the remote and it should program. you should try a remote from the dealer not from ebay.

The P2251 error code means you will need to replace the front O2 sensor (the oxygen sensor that bolts into the exhaust manifold accessible under the hood)

Power steering

I used to own a 2005 Cobalt SS supercharged, basicaly the same thing as an Ion Redline. I know that on my car, there is an electric power steering pump, rather than a belt driven. If you have to same system, there may be an electrical problem causing the power steering to stop working and start again after turning off and starting the car again. If you are still under warenty, I would recomend taking your car to the dealership.

Bad Radio reception in new 2009 Mazda3 Sport GS model

I would venture a guess that the antenna wire that plugs into the back of the radio is not seated properly. Did the dealer tech just listen to the radio or did he/she actually check the connections on the back of the unit? A faulty antenna connection would explain why it only happens with some stations and not others. Maybe the stations that are not being a problem are transmitting a more powerful signal or are closer in range than the ones that you are having trouble picking up clearly. Just a thought. Hope this helped and best wishes.
