Basically the phone companies have been caught red handed sabotaging old phones but so far there is nothing about car companies. Maybe if people serviced their cars at the dealers, they could sabotage them to sell the new model, but it is a bit extreme.

Vehicle Entertainment / Navigation Systems / Mazda 6 2016 Stereo
« Last Post by matthewgo on October 15, 2018, 07:03:43 pm »

I have recently purchased a 2016 Mazda 6 SEL, its such a good car!  I've noticed that the volume on the stereo/speakers doesn't seem to go very loud. When turning the dial the volume will raise until you hit around 30 on the volume marker and then after that it doesn't seem to raise the volume at all.

I have read some other posts which are similar but there doesn't seem to be a fix. If this isnt a issue that can be fixed, has anyone upgraded the systems/speakers?

Thanks all

I guess I'll have to take one for the team, then!
Did you contact the local dealer? Sounds like they know this is an issue.
I just heard back from Mazda that they are going to fix my car FOC, using a new Turbo unit with a modified by-pass flap. Bad news is new units are still in transit from Japan and won't be available for about 10 days. At least I don't have to spend a fortune now!
I hope you get yours sorted.

It sounds like your injector seals had gone and the engine is already dirty. It should be worthy doing the sump as the rocker was already in a bad state.

Do clean the EGR. Somebody cleaned the whole lot, EGR, turbo, manifold, all in a bucket with some oven cleaner overnight.

Let it run as it goes and maybe forget about fixing the turbo boost thing. It is already high mileage to keep pushing it. Maybe somebody with inside knowledge can fix it.

Well i did the rocker gasket and injector seals after actually getting the injectors out,,there is a huge amount of gunky crap under the rocker cover how its still going is beyond me,,so i cleaned the cover and left the rest where it was as i didnt fancy taking the sump off.. I didnt bother with the egr so i blanked it off which made no difference and threw up the eml light the next day so i unblocked it and the light went off again, the pipe from the inlet was nearly completely blocked anyway.. Im thinking i might get a exhaust pressure tester just to see if theres any back pressure which will indicate blocked dpf/cat,, before going down the new dpf route

It was always like that. Mine is 9/2009 and it does it.

What auto lights means for Mazda gurus is that the dashboard illuminates when it is dark outside but the lights at the front and back of the car are always on.

They changed some relay for the facelift car and that can turn off the lights. Some people have swapped the relays for £150 or so for the part. The trick is that if you get into a knowledgeable and legal MOT centre, the car will be failed because it is not at its original set up.

The lights at traffic confuse you based on the shape of the car in front. I have come home and had to check that the bulbs were on because the reflection looked like one of them had gone off.
