Good news! Wiring harness turned up today so I plugged the aftermarket stereo in and the screen stays on fuel range so happy days! So I will be turning my attention to fitting it for real!

Engine/Transmission/Powertrain/Exhaust / 2L 121hp diesel chip tune
« Last Post by IceManLT on September 19, 2018, 10:20:44 am »
Hello so I'm debating if i should chip tune my mazda 6. They claim that it will raise the horsepower to 153hp  and the torque to 375Nm. Has anybody done any chip tuning to their first gen mazda's and did they have any problems?

On my radio it has a "clock" button. On the right hand corner of the screen is the clock and if I press the clock button changes to the range of fuel I have left. If I fit an adaptor I will lose the "clock" button. I have a radio harness coming so I will give it a try with an aftermarket stereo so see what happens. I shall report back!

I do not think the radio is connected in that way to the screen. That is why I mentioned the heater controls. If by removing the radio you impact the screen, then you would also miss the other information like the temperature.

If you do not want to replace the radio with the same one in better condition, a good adapter that will keep most of the functionality live, will help you get everything working.

I've just got/sold my Mazda 6 / I just sold my 2.0 TS2 Mazda6

Today I part-exed my TS2 Mazda6 for a 2017 Skoda Superb 2.0 TSi Laurin & Klement.
It is in a different league compared to the Mazda, even if I compare it to the newest 6. More spacious, more kit and a lot quicker.
I loved my Mazda though as it never let me down.
I will keep an eye on the forum as it is a fun place to be.

:D

Thanks for your reply mate. I know what you mean but the heater controls will still be there, it's the clock/range button that are on the stereo that won't be there if I remove the stereo. The screen will still be the same but the drivers side corner is the clock/range so I'm curious to know what it will display, if anything when the stereo is removed.

Troubleshooting / Re: P0472 and p0471 fault codes

The exhaust pressure sensor was the only fault that came up on the diagnostic. Apparently this causes the other lights (scbs,traction control and engine management lights) to come on. That's y I changed the exhaust pressure sensor. Was just trying to c if I could resolve it before mazda chucked a load of expensive parts at it trying to fix it. The car has only done 37000 miles and does regular motorway runs so dpf should be ok. Also have had no lights come up for dpf or fault codes. Was wondering if it could be something related to exaust pressure. sensor

Are you sure that a new radio will affect the screen? If that was the case, then you would have also have troubles with the heater. You can control everything from the steering wheel except the clock. At the end of the day, it may be down to the combination of radio and adapter.

It sounds like a lot of random problems came together.

If you can find what triggered the problems, then you could do something about it.

Removing the wheels, replacing the pads and the tyres and putting the wheels back, it does not seem like what caused the problem.

But if they hit the car, or messed with something else, then you have to investigate in this direction.

The exhaust pressure sensor could have been faulty but it could also mean that the DPF died. I am not sure if it is healthy to keep replacing parts like that.
