Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

1 Answer

My 2006 Mazda 3 occasionally will not start. All lights come on, security icon on dash glows steady, but no power to the starter. It has an aftermarket remote starter and when starting problems arose, I had the remote start disconnected at a dealer thinking this was causing the problem. Now I'm thinking it must be the security system. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your reply. Since I posted this question, I took the car in to the dealer for repairs and that's exactly what the problem was.
    Thanks again.

1/2 light in dash dials out along with the ashtray light in 2006 Mazda 3

The dash light consist if two parts plus the ashtery light In your Mazda. You need to disconnect the dash look for the steps online available for Mazda 3. You might find that the cable harness is slightly disconnected or the pins in it are a bit twisted you need to check it out. And for the ashtery light after you get the cup holder removed and all the screws in the dash as well. You will get to a harness right back of the lighter which will leads you to another smaller plug of a tiny bulb. Make sure it's well connected otherwise it's just a replacement matter!

Locating starter on 2006 Mazda 3

The starter is found in between the transmission and the block. If I recall my Mazda's correctly it is located on the side near the firewall. It is mostly cylindrical with wires coming from it.

2006 mazda 3 dash light will blink

Wonder if it is a reminent of an old security system? Rather than taking it out and leaving a hole and wire splices, they just left the armed light there. Just a thought though. Do you have an owners manual? If so, check through it and see if there is a light, that is supposed to be there. Best wishes to you.
