- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Battery issue
Hi guys, recently picked up a 2018 2.0. I daily drive it for work, and coming from an RX-8, I was hoping for some solid Mazda 4-cylinder reliability, eheh. Well I went to drive home from work a few days ago, and… nothing! Start-stop button didn’t work (didn’t even light up), central locking dead, yada yada. Phonecall and slightly mad girlfriend later, checked the battery and it was at 3 volts, oh dear. Jump started it (with her Mazda 3, of course ) and all seemed well.
Upon further reflection that night, I think I might have inadvertently left it in ACC ignition mode for 4 or 5 hours with the heated seats and blowers on - I parked up with roof down, and put it back up after 10 mins or so. Engine was off, so I pushed the start button twice to get the windows back up, and then I guess must have walked off like an idiot. I’m sure I remember locking it, though…
Anyway, I just wanted some closure really - is there really no timeout or anything on the ACC mode, and is this the likely reason I had a flat battery, do ya think?
