Question about 2004 Mazda 3

1 Answer

Speedometer i bought a used 04 mazda 3. i noticed that the speedometer would sometimes drop when i wasn't accelerating. i just thought that was some neat 'racecar' feature that was part of the 3. but later it got worse; even to the point that the cruise control wont work. on my way out of town, the car started revving on its own...then it stopped when i got back home. i took it to the shop and they said they couldnt figure it out unless they took the dash off, and this will cost me anywhere between $900 and $1300. so, now i'm stuck.

TAKE IT TO THE DEALER THERE IS NO NEED TO TAKE THE DASH OFF. TELL THE DEALER WHAT IS GOING IN WITH THE CAR AND LET THEM FIND THE PROBLEM BECAUSE THEY SEND US TO A LOT OF SCHOOLS ON THE 3 AND THE 6. IT COULD BE JUST A PCM REFLASH OR SOFTWARE UPDATE.
