FFC

Post by SoonerV8 » Thu Jan 10, 2019 1:41 pm

I finally have given up. My local dealership, under instruction from Mazda UK, have had my CX3 twice to try and make sense of non functioning adaptive headlights (apart from bending round corners that is) , non functioning road sign recognition and very erratic lane departure warning.
I checked that the camera was plugged in myself as I doubt the dealership did that!! Software was updated also.
There is absolutely no headlamp beam movement when vehicles approach at night, judged by observation and the number of irate drivers who blind me in retaliation!!
Is it just my car??
I love the car, and the absence of these vehicle "inputs" I've lived without for 50 years, so it's not an onerous task to dip my own headlights, look at road signs or drive between white lines. It just irritates me that they don't work, and because the SAT Nav speed limit information is often out of date, it would be helpful if the HUD gave the correct limit.

It appears that your adaptive headlights are functioning as they turn towards the corner. However the adaptive feature that moves the beam away from oncoming traffic was only included with the safety pack option. Are you sure your car has the optional safety pack?

Do you get the green headlamp light with the A in the middle, as per photo?

I've not got the safety pack but I've also not noticed the headlamps turning either, I'll have to check them some time 8-) .

I think it's a fairly safe assumption that Mazda UK and the dealer wouldn't be wasting their time if it wasn't included!

I don't make assumptions any more, it's almost been my downfall in the past.
Are you saying that your car has definitely got the safety pack fitted? Do you have the blind spot monitoring in the wing mirrors?

Do you have the lights in AUTO mode?
If I turn on my lights manually on the light stalk, then auto high beam doesn't work; it HAS to be in AUTO mode on the light stalk for it to work.
This is on a 2015, so I'm not sure if they have changed that.

There will not be a green headlamp light with the A, in dashbord, if not in auto mode :idea:

I know, that's why my lights always in AUTO mode :-)
Only downside is that my lights doesn't turn on, when I unlock my car. But I believe that has been changed on newer versions.
