  1. Interior map and dome lights won't shut off please help

    Electrical / HVAC
    They have shut themselves off eventually, but no they weren't set to "always on". They were set to door. Even the door lights would stay on as I drove. Kicker was, the "door open" symbol on the dash wasn't lit up, so saying all the doors were closed. The only way I could get the interior ones...
  2. Interior map and dome lights won't shut off please help

    Electrical / HVAC
    Well. Exactly what the title says. All doors are fully shut, and my map and done lights are set to "door". My dash doesn't indicate that a door is open yet my lights stay on 24/7. Luck fully they shit off when the car shuts off. But any one have any ideas?
  3. Lighting behind temp control knobs

    Interior Modifications
    Thanks, yeah I've removed my dash a million times swapping head units and stuff like that. I'm just trying to figure out how to solder the new LEDs in, which I did want to do instead of minding those amber Mazda bulbs (I don't like those colors anyway) I'm thinking a bright white or something...
  4. Lighting behind temp control knobs

    Interior Modifications
    Hey guys it's been a while! I have a faded light behind my knob where j adjust temp... Anyone ever change the colts behind there? Wondering if it's a simple as soldering a new led behind them making them all white or blue or something?

  7. Deep hollow noise... Help

    Suspension / Brakes
    ANNNNNDD we were wrong hahah. Noise came back. Went to the local garage that I always take my ride to and he had never heard a noise like this one before. Come to find out after he brought out a laser thermometer, one caliper would slightly lock up causing the rotor to overheat and cause the...
  8. Deep hollow noise... Help

    Suspension / Brakes
    Alright, so when my dad and I did my back break, we both forgot to line the piston up with the little nipples on the breaks, therefore was pushing the breaks awkwardly and tilting them when breaking causing this noise. Bonehead move on our part but luckily caught it before it damaged the new breaks
  9. Deep hollow noise... Help

    Suspension / Brakes
    Okay so my brakes out of no where decided that when i gradually come to a stop or slow down, my front brakes make a DEEP hollow noise. It's crazy, no squeak just a deep ass hollow noise. Best way I can describe it is that it sounds like my exhaust when I rev it, but it's my brakes or something...

    ~~ The official "What did you do to your 6 today" thread!! ~~ Thanks man I can't take all the credit though, stole the idea from my buddy when he wired one in his 350Z. But I left some slack in the radar wire and tapped into the mirror wire a little higher up so that mesh cover...

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    Well today I just did a little electrical work. Cleaned up the wiring behind my new head unit along with grounded out the parking wire so DVD's can be ran without the e-brake up. Then hard wired in my cobra radar detector to the auto dimming mirror so now that's mounted up next to my rear view...

    3.0L V6
    Thanks for all help guys it was throwing a P0302 so it was a misfire in the 2nd cylinder... It hasn't happened again so I'm gonna start with some of these suggestions you guys put up. Thank you Edit: as for my wiring, I've had my HID's in for over a year and had no problems so I believe the...
  14. Misfire.. again

    3.0L V6
    Okay so my dad thinks because I hooked up the relay harness for my HID's directly to the battery, that the draw from that caused the cylinder to not get enough power and misfire. Any thoughts on that? He's saying I had no problems until I wired that up so in my opinion he's just trying to take...
  15. Misfire.. again

    3.0L V6
    Alright, so as if I' not having a shitty week with my car already after it being hit and ran, now i went to go start it and immediately felt the car shake and i knew immediately that it was a misfire. The CEL came on and started blinking at me, i let it sit for a second and the misfire stopped...

    I don't know why I'm having such bad luck all of a sudden... On vacation got swiped in the back end while my car was parked on the street.. Most looks buffable but there's a 4" scratch straight down to the plastic of the bumper so that sucks. šŸ˜” Just got the notification that my head unit...

  18. Uht oh --- moisture

    Exterior Modifications
    Little update here... So I let the moisture turn to water and I rolled it around inside the housing and found a spot that looked apparently cracked where there was water droplets coming out along where the clear plastic meets the housing on the bottom (kind of made sense because my headlight...
  19. Uht oh --- moisture

    Exterior Modifications
    Soooooo I just installed my new 8000k HID's two nights ago and tonight there's rain and I noticed moisture in the headlight. I thought I sealed the hole I had to drill but I guess not good enough. Anything I can do to get the moisture out? I'm gonna take everything apart tomorrow morning and...

    Cleaned the engine bay with a degreaser, worked amazing... Also installed my new 8000k bulbs. I was hoping for a little more blue tint than what these give me, but I couldn't expect too much for the price I paid. They're definitely WAY brighter than my 6000K.
