Yes, dismiss it by pressing the up/down steering wheel buttons, the same ones you use to change between average mpg/instant mpg etc.

Hi.....I had a quick look on the Mazda toolbox re Sat Nav. You can update the SD card via the Mazda website for about £100
You need to remove the SD card, plug it into your laptop / computer and pay the money to receive updated Sat Nav info.

Not sure how up to date that system will be.

All the best..........Steve

Mazda 3 / Ice warning
« Last post by sjpoole on December 15, 2018, 05:50:59 PM »
Hi to all...........now the weather is a little colder, the Ice warning is appearing on the display
(Mazda 3 gen 3 2015 SE - L Nav) Once I have seen it can I remove it and go back to the
estimated miles left in the car fuel tank and when using the cruise control - the speed at which it is set

Have looked in the owners manual, does not appear to be covered.

Many thanks.............Steve

Hi,

I have joined up here mainly to see if there is anyone out there that can offer some insight into a fault that the main dealer has attempted to resolve but as yet failed, but it's also looking like a good all round place to level up my knowledge of the car we recently bought. I have limited technical chops in the world of cars but I am a broadcast engineer so I try to flex my right-brain as much as I can.

I will open a thread with the issues I am having in the right place hopefully - thanks in advance for any help with it.

Car is a Mazda 3, 2014, bought in 2017 with 18500 miles, Mazda approved, 2.0 petrol, 165PS, Soul Red... which is obviously the best red to ever have existed on a car since the Testarossa from the posters on my wall in the 80's.

Steve.

I suspected it would be a new cluster but just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the replies  :)

Mostly genuine, but i've always asked the seller for the part number to check against my own to make sure it's OEM that  i'm buying

Plenty on ebay  ;D

The question (always is): are they genuine (and CE certificated) parts designed for the car or some cheap rubbish or dangerous Chinese knock-offs?  Not always easy to tell.

Again many thanks for your guidance.
Are there any owners in the Suffolk area who have had the correct undersealing work done professionally locally and how much did they charge?

Unless you're canny with multimeter  and a soldering iron and very patient you're looking at a new cluster.

Good news is they are readily available from breakers and bolt on and off with a single connector to the electrical system.
