CX3 Active driving display ovesm

Post by coxy62 » Sat Aug 10, 2019 7:41 pm

We have a 67 plate CX3 with a Active driving display .
After a while the speed display will gradually move to the bottom of the screen, then when we re-set the height it will be ok then after a few days it will move again.
When I approach Mazda they don't know know the reason.
So if anybody has a solution it would be appreciated.

Is it the height of your seat changing rather than the display changing?

On my 17 plate it stays where I set it. Maybe there’s a fault on yours.

I think HouseSpider may be correct. There was a problem with the seat height dropping. My seats are at the lowest setting so I don't have a problem.

Mine does the same...if your seat was dropping the speed display would move higher up the screen. My seat was slowly dropping so I put a wooden block under the seat to resolve that problem which it did, the speed sign was still changing.
I have noticed when driving in France recently the Speed sign was going to the top of the screen as the temperature rose, I think the temperature effects the vertical position of the plastics screen which will effect your view through it. I started adjusting it when stopping for a break.
But noticed if I didn't in the morning when it was cooler the speed sign had returned to its original setting. Interested if you test yours you find the same.
It is not a lot and I am sure a lot of people wouldn't even notice but being a fussy old bugger I did.
