2013 Mazda6 with stop/start
« on: January 09, 2021, 07:37:16 pm »
Can someone advise what the correct battery type/ref is please.

Car is a deisel 2013 6 with stop/start with auto box and 175ps sky active engine.

I have tried all the usual search sources and have found no definitive answer.

Any help would be appreciated

A lot of places do t stock/list a compatible battery as it needs to be start/stop compatible.

I have a new one in the garage that was fitted to my Mazda 6 for a week before I part ex’d it.

I can take a pic and get the park number if you like?

One thing to note is ideally you need to get it fitted by a garage as they have to tell the car it has a new battery as it charges new batteries at a different rate to older batteries (apparently)

The cheapest place you can buy a battery is:

https://www.tayna.co.uk/

Enter your registration number and it should come up with the right batter spec.

They have the option to fit it for you but it basically goes to:

https://www.whocanfixmycar.com/ and you make a new deal.

You can fit it by yourself similarly to that:

The i-stop may not need anything special to be. It should work after driving for some time. But you can also reset it manually like this:

https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/index.php?threads/how-to-reset-the-i-stop-system-eg-after-battery-replacement.123859564/

1. Warm up the engine. Turn everything electrical off that you can - radio, A/C etc so there is no/minimal electrical load.
2. Switch the ignition off.
3. Switch ignition to on but dont start engine. Long-press the i-stop OFF switch for 3 s within 5 s after switching the ignition ON.
4. Start the engine.
5. Press the i-stop OFF switch. Verify that the i-stop indicator light (green) flashes and stays flashing. If it does not flash, go back to Step 3.
6. Allow the engine to idle for 10 minutes, or until the i-stop indicator light (green) turns off. Mine didnt stop flashing so after 10 minutes or so i just went to step 7.
7. Switch the engine off. Wait a minute or two.
8. Start the engine. Go for a drive, and check that the i-stop system operates normally. Those with i-stop will know that you may need to drive a mile or two until it activates. Remember that i-stop will not operate when (a) diesel engines are in regen mode, and (b) in some other conditions - see your manual for details. Also, if a new battery was fitted, it may take some time for the new battery to fully charge up before i-stop will start working. Go for a decent drive so it gets fully charged.
9. If i-stop operates as normal, you have successfully reset it.


The most value for money option is to buy online, fit it at home and then do the reset manually if it is needed.
