Question about 2004 Mazda 3
I have the same problem with the Radio & Clock intermittently resetting.. sometimes it goes off for a few seconds but has been known to stay off for over 40 mins! This has been happening for nearly a year and the dealership and mazda canada say they've never heard of it.
Now sometimes when my clock/radio reset my interior lights come on! They have replaced my dimmer switch and said that the problem should be resolved.. I thought that seemed crazy.. drove to the first set of lights out of the dealer and sure enough it happened again! Anyone know what could be causing this? I figure if they can't figure it out, maybe someone else could! There seems to be no rhyme or reason, it has happened when the heat/air has been on or off.. when the car has just been turned on or when I've been driving for an hour.. there is no common trigger that I can figure out. If anyone can help please advise.
Did you fix it ? I have the same problem :( Don't know what it is

My radio completely died so did my interior lights, my odometer resets to 0 and keyless entry does not work all at once. i hit a bumb on the road one day and everything started to work for a few hours then it stoped again. I know its all connected, mazda told me they never heard of this and would cost me 95 per hour just to investigate.

I have no clue what's going on with the interior lights coming on. You might want to check the switch in the door that tells the car if the door is open or not. As for the radio cutting out, check the connections from it to the car. When I installed my new radio, I slid it in wrong and it pulled apart one of the wires I had twisted together and that kept my radio from working, so it could be a loose, not broken connection that would cause intermittent operation. It is also possible to have to do with the switch I mentioned. I know some cars the radio will continue to operate even once the keys are removed until the door opens and then the radio stops. I wish I could help more, but these are things to potentially check out.
