My Mazda 6 sport has xenon discharge headlights. One of them keeps going off while driving. I can't find any loose connections, and the Mazda dealer couldn't reproduce the problem. Any advice?

I had the same Problem on My Mazda 6 Sport. If you turn the lights off then back on the light comes back on.The main dealer eventually changed the headlight, after being instructed by Mazda that there was a common fault within the sealed unit.
My advise is to take it back to the dealer, and tell them mazda have nbeen changing them under warranty.

My mazda mpv 2004 keeps discharging my battery, what could be wrong with it?


many things can drain the battery: a weak battery connection, a faulty component, or a small short. check to see if the braking lights stay on after you have exited the car. I know how that sounds, but it could happen that the braking pedal switch is loose. just an idea. best luck to you.

Why does my mazda 6 squeaks in hot weather


The usual reason is the belt that drives the A/C compressor is loose. Sometimes the issue is a tensioner pulley bearing is worn out. May also be the belt that drives the alternator. When the extra load of the compressor or the current to drive the A/C fans engages, the belt will slip and squeak. Adjust or replace the belt(s).

Diagnosis: The problem could be a bad headlight bulb, a loose bulb or corroded bulb socket, a bad ignitor, or a bad ground connection or wiring harness fault at the ignitor. High Intensity Discharge Xenon headlight bulbs do not have a filament, so if the bulb has failed it may be cracked or leaking. The bulb also requires a high voltage ignitor to turn it on and keep it glowing. On some applications, the bulb and ignitor are one unit and can only be replaced as an assembly. On others, the bulb and ignitor are separate components, and can be replaced separately. The bulbs are expensive to replace ($50 to $100), and the ignitors are even more expensive to replace (up to $200!), so you want to make sure you have correctly diagnosed the faulty part BEFORE you replace anything.
TIP: Swap the "good" bulb that is working on the other side to the headlamp that is not working. If the headlight now works, you know the bulb you removed was bad and needs to be replaced. If the headlight still does not work, try swapping the "good" ignitor module on the other side to the side that is not working. If the headlight now works, the problem was a bad ignitor, not the bulb. You need to replace only the ignitor and not the bulb. If the headlight still does not work, you have a wiring fault such as a loose ground connection, a bad wiring harness at the headlamp housing, or a corroded bulb socket.

Headlights aren't bright enough at night


Don't change to HID Xenon or Bi-Xenon unless you change the entire headlight unit, as your standard headlamp units are not designed for this. You will only end up blinding oncoming traffic, and your beam scatter will be all over the place.

Take your car to a servicing garage or dealer and ask them to check the headlight alignment. If you are still unhappy with the headlight performance, there are plenty of quality halogen bulbs out there - just look at the Philips or Osram automotive range.

If your car and headlights are off then you will not get a shock. You have to unplug the bulb to replace it anyway so there is no way for you to get shocked.
