Welcome Lights on 2017 model
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:04:06 pm »
According to the manual, with the light switch set to auto, side or dipped headlights, the headlights should come on when the car is unlocked.  This doesn't work, has anyone any ideas on how to switch the function on?

I thought this feature only works if you keep the headlights stalk ON ?

i went in to the menus switched the option off then on and now they work!  Just like any other computer, switch it off then on again!

Turns out that wasnt the answer after all!  Its just been mazda for 3 days with them trying to sort it out! Their answer is, basically, if there is a long time between locking the car after driving and unlocking then the auto going out light wont work, but if its a short time , it will work :o
Probably the most useless explanation ever for why something doesnt work the way the manual,says its meant to!
Does anyone else have my issue?

The headlights in our 2015 Mazda 3 are always set to auto, and there's no welcome lights.  However I seem to recall a time when the welcome lights were active, and it turned out that the headlights were set to on.

From my understanding of this feature I believe you have to keep the headlight setting to ON. It won't work in the auto position
