Question about 2006 Mazda 6

2 Answers

I took my 2006 Mazda 6 in for an oil change yesterday. The mechanic said when he tried to start the car to back it out of the garage, the car would not start. He checked the battery and said it had a bad cell. He jumped the car to start it so we could take it home and I would replace the battery. While driving home, we found the auto down function of the power windows quit working and the drivers door switch for the passenger front power window will not work. The passenger front window will work on the passenger door switch, but the auto down function does not work. I removed the battery and had it checked by another source and it was confirmed the battery needed to be replaced. I installed the new battery and the car starts OK now, but the windows do not work properly. Is this connected in some way? And how can I troubleshoot the window problem?

Usually the autodown feature needs to be reprogrammed. there are usually 2 ways of doing this. First, roll the window down and hold the switch down for a about 5 seconds and then roll the window up and hold for about 5 seconds. Repeat if it does work just to make sure. The other way is to hold the switch up for 5 seconds and try holding down the switch for 5 seconds.

What most likely happened was they jumped it in the max boost position. For alot of new cars like yours it is recommended that you do not do this. Your car has a BCM. Computer that could of been damaged. I would take it back to the service dept that changed the oil complaining. Even tho you had a bad battery they prabably left the key on during the oil service which is why you never experienced a no start condition. If it wasnt broken before the service, they did something to cause this. If they give you a hard time state you will file a complaint with your state Automobile Industry

Mazda Atenza 2006 when to change cambelt or is it chain driven


My data book shows that all Mazda motors around the 2006 year are all chain driven. they include 4 cylinders and V -6 engines . Chains have an aluminium housing on the front of the engine where as belts have a plastic cover . Chains have a hydraulic adjuster which adjusts the chain automatically and the KLM's to do it will depend on the work the engine does and the services it gets . For example if you are a petrol head and forget the services or uses cheap /wrong grade oils then the chain may be noisy at 150.000 klms but if you drive responsibly and change the oil every 10.000 klms and use a good quality oil the chain will last more than 250.000klms. To prevent being taken in future check the accreditation of the mechanic and ask around about the garage's customer relations

Take the car to AutoZone and ask the agent to read your computer error.
He will read the code and give you a brief explanation of what the error means.

2006 mazda 6 2.3 65,000 miles. It started making a very, very loud ticking / knocking noise at all times following the rpms. The valve clearences are within spec, but that's all i've checked. ...


Mobil oil won`t cause this problem however if the mechanical parts have just succumbed to metal fatigue or defect.the noise could be rocker arms,connecting rod noise or a failed piston.its hard to say without hearing the noise as it is to try and describe the noise.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

2004 Mazda 6 Battery Life is SHORT!


Was this mechcanic certified? It sounds like your altenator has a weak diode or regulator instead if the car does start every day. To see if you have a bad diode take a volt meter and set it to the DC switch for direct current. Have the red probe to red (POSITIVE) and black on black (NEGATIVE) It sould give you a reading of 13.5 volts when the engine is running. If not switch the red wire from the meter to the black (Negagtive) on the batteryand the black wire from the volt meter to the red (Positive) to the battery. If you get the same reading when inverting the wires you have a bad diode. A diode only lets current flow one direction. If it shows flowing both ways it will under charge your battery causing it to die out

time for a new car.  You single handedly ruined this motor.  Don't waste anymore money on this car,  buy another car and do the prescribed maintenance as required. Think of this as an expensive lesson.
