Question about 2005 Mazda 3

1 Answer

The standard radio in my 2005 Mazda 3 4dr sedan simply stopped working while driving one day. I have checked the fuse in the fuse panel and it doesn't appear to be blown. Does anyone know what the problem might be? It is a real hassle I'm told to get into the dash on this car.

You'll need to remove the stock radio from the vehicle and look on the back - if it doesn't have a fuse there, then the radio probably burnt inside. The cost of repairing the original radio may be more than buying a replacement. When you get your replacement, make sure to buy the appropriate wire harness for your vehicle as well as the right mount kit for proper installation. If you do the stereo but don't mount it , it will not last long as it doesn't take much banging to kill one. Patience will be your best tool in doing this job as well as minimal tools including a crimp tool and crimp connectors. Soldering the wires is not necessary, and when you get the harness, count the wires on it - that is how many connectors you'll need, although I would get a few extras - for insurance!!

I have water comming into the trunk of my Mazda 3 from the top back left panel help

Panel? Window, sun roof? Either way. Silicone it in. Window no big deal from the outside.. Sunroof, well if you want it to work, these seals are $150 +. Use water to smooth the silicone out. Wipe up the excess first. Hot day, be quick about it.

Radio stopped working

If the fuse panel is like the one on a 1989 - it's fuse no. 11, but if it's blown there are other things that won't work.

check fuse panel first for blown fuse,second check your daytime running lights come on without flickering. if problem persists- all these are affected by headlight switch- controls interior lighting and headlamps and daytime driving lights

Suddenly my radio and clock stop working, it was working for few day after it stopped working but again stopped working.

You could have a short some where in the wiring. If its an aftermarket radio see if you can pull it out and check to be sure all wires are properly done.

If its a stock radio then check the fuse panel!
