ALC Issue

Post by switchback » Fri Jul 05, 2019 5:35 pm

ALC (controls the radio volume )

On several occasions mine has reset itself to "0" and I have to keep putting it back to "5". Anyone else had this happen?

Hi there I’ve also been having this issue. Mine resets ALC and volume to 0 and changes treble bass balance etc to the defaults. Also notice the last radio station listened to has changed to some random static. Been happening about once a week will arrange to drop it in to dealer soon. Might just need a software update.

Early models had an issue with ALC making no difference regardless of the setting, and that issue was fixed with an MZD-Connect operating system update. I've not had ALC resetting to zero though.

I have experienced the same thing happening on my 8 month old CX-3, where the Volume settings go back to default and the ALC also has reverted to Zero. I will book it in to have the problem fixed. Thanks for posting the problem it doesn't happen very often but it has happened and I'm glad to read I'm not alone in experiencing the problem.
