Troubleshooting / Re: Fuse Box Problem
« Last Post by Pezza187 on July 16, 2019, 06:50:51 pm »
Thank you apav.

The contact clean hasn’t worked so my next idea is to replace that plug.
My thinking is that it might be badly scorched inside but I’m just guessing now, plus I’m gonna clean all the earthing points and hope lol.
This is the plug I’m talking about, that’s it after I cleaned it.
I’m trying to upload a picture of it but can’t for some reason.

Did that contact cleaner work?

The plug may not fit again as the initial/permanent contact is now broken. Maybe if you replace that bit will work out.

I had the same problem but mine cut out a few times at some lights.
I cleaned out my throttle body and never had the problem again.

Troubleshooting / Fuse Box Problem
« Last Post by Pezza187 on July 16, 2019, 12:39:59 pm »
I have a Mazda 6 sport 2.5L 2008 Petrol and I have had a problem with the alarm going off randomly for awhile now.
I have done some lengthy research online about it and found a guy that said the connector plug in the fuse box can get tarnished and cleaning it off fixed his problem. So I disconnected my negative off the battery and pulled the plug out to find that it was badly tarnished and scorched, I then replaced it and the negative so that I could go and get some contact cleaner.
My car then struggled to start which was strange but was ok, I began my journey and the car cut out for no reason and then back on instantly as if the ignition was turned off for a second. Further on it completely cut out and left me coasting down the road and wouldn't start again.
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

It is usually like that because they are exposed to similar conditions.

So the other side may give up soon but you are lucky you can work on them.

If you have the time, you may save trouble by giving the time to strip all of them, clean them and put them back.

I have seen people with newish cars, e.g. just after the warranty expired, when they service the car to a small but passionate garage, they strip the brakes and put them back again.

Unfortunately this is not a standard procedure in any of the service intervals and I think that is why the brakes fail.

Maybe it is a cost effective exercise to have callipers replaced every so often than cleaning the brakes on a regular basis.

As an update to this, i checked out the front caliper and the piston was in a bad way and dirt build up looks like the culprit, causing it not to be able to retract fully and drag.

I overhauled the caliper and piston and re-attached and bled, seems to have solved the issue and the front is no longer dragging.

I also re-bled the rear and 'seems' to have solved the issue.

The images put into the first original post have been taken from the hosting page. Probably by the original poster filterlab.  Perhaps he has closed his account with  imgur.com . I'm sorry, but there is nothing that can be done about that.     The images in  reply#14 are still visible.

 filterlab was last active on the forum on November 22, 2017 so he may not be an active member any longer.

Vehicle Electrics / Re: Heated seat not working... any ideas?

Is there any kind of DIY thread to do this? I have the same issue and have seen various replies of what to do / look for.

I don't want to butcher anything so was hoping there was some kind of work through that someone has done previously :)  ;D
