Replaced Reverse Lights with LEDs. Gave her a bath: foam cannon and then hand wash with some Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss. I was planning on finishing with wax, but it started sprinkling on me. Still looks good even after the little bit of rain.
Today I visited my go-to wrecker to pick up a front turn signal lamp holder and ended up leaving with a set of black-bezel factory HID headlights instead. They're in mid-wet sand right now and will be cleared and installed tomorrow.
Finally got around to replacing the Shifter Switch on my '14 6 that was having the not-registering-the-car-is-in-park issue Also swapped out all the headlights (low beam and high beam) with Katana LEDs. Took it out for a drive tonight, and they look good - a nice, bright, white with a hint of blue. I'll have to do some testing to see if they need to be adjusted or if there is any glare.
One thing I noticed is the check engine light was on after I swapped the headlights and got everything put back together. I ran a code test and it was the Intake Air Temperature Sensor.
I took off the lid of the OEM air intake box to get to the driver side bulbs - and evidently the intake temp sensor didn't like the inside of the box being exposed to 100* heat for a few hours (I took a lunch break in between). I got back in the car later after dark and the check engine light was off, but I will keep an eye on it. I plan to replace it with a CosrSport SRI soon anyway.
More coming this week: new windshield tomorrow (thanks to a rock chip that has spread all over the place), tint later this week, and hopefully installing the fog lights / led bulbs next weekend.
Just some pics of her new look before we take it on vacation. I dig the look that's coming together. I didn't even give her a bath. It looks like it's about to rain for the 3rd time today anyway so we will ride dirty lol.
I just ordered another round of parts towards my retrofit. 1 more good round and I should have everything I need. Last on the list is D2S bulbs, New H3C bulbs, Projectors, and about 75 feet of 12 conductor multi strand wire. Hopefully very soon I can order it all up and get everything installed. Then I can work on the rear of the car lol.
Nothing too serious. Getting ready to move from Ohio to Arizona in a few days, and decided to install a new starter and properly ground it to the negative battery terminal. Change out the spark plugs. And hopefully, later today, do a full coolant flush. Just the basic services, I guess. Also: later on want to try and fix the super annoying, saggy roof liner with some adhesive spray I recently bought. I hope everyone else is doing well this week!
Lmfao!! Love the pic of the hammer next to the starter. Such an essential tool for changing starters out ? ? ?
As far as the headliner goes, as a heads up, the spray may not work. The headliner will have to be removed and the fabric replaced. There is a foam that will need to be scraped off for best adhesion. You can try it and if the spray that you have works, please let us know because I know mine is due to be redone.
I have a Mazda6 2015, recently i changed both batteries for car and remote key. When stop the car and turn off engine i have noticed that a red light on the ignition button stays on when i turn off engine and then the remote key stops working.
I just sent my Scanguage II to be upgraded to the newest revision.
I know that it's capable of displaying tranny temp, torque @ converter, and HP @ crank.
But these may not work with the 6, and I haven't read anything here about people using them.
Can anyone with the latest Scanguage II tell me...
So I got a new set of 18" wheel from a friend and cant find the exact answer in looking for. Does the 2015 sport with stock 17s have tpms sensors. My local mazda dealer said no that it uses the abs sensors. After test drive tpms warning light came on, I reset the light and need to go test drive...
