Having problems with your 2006 Mazda 6 ?

I took my 2006 Mazda 6 in for an oil change yesterday. The mechanic said when he tried to start the car to back it out of the garage, the car would not start. He checked the battery and said it had a bad cell. He jumped the car to start it so we could take it home and I would replace the battery. While driving home, we found the auto down function of the power windows quit working and the drivers door switch for the passenger front power window will not work. The passenger front window will work

Answers :

Usually the autodown feature needs to be reprogrammed. there are usually 2 ways of doing this. First, roll the window down and hold the switch down for a about 5 seconds and then roll the window up and hold for about 5 seconds. Repeat if it does work just to make sure. The other way is to hold the switch up for 5 seconds and try holding down the switch for 5 seconds.
What most likely happened was they jumped it in the max boost position. For alot of new cars like yours it is recommended that you do not do this. Your car has a BCM. Computer that could of been damaged. I would take it back to the service dept that changed the oil complaining. Even tho you had a bad battery they prabably left the key on during the oil service which is why you never experienced a no start condition. If it wasnt broken before the service, they did something to cause this. If they give you a hard time state you will file a complaint with your state Automobile Industry

My 96 lincoln started having problems with the interior lights staying on all the time, then the drivers side window did not work, then the power steering was operating intermittenly and then stopped working, then the power door locks stop working, then the car stalled and would not turn on.

Electrical Issue After adding r134 to the ac system i shut the car off. About an hour later, I started the car and the compressor would not engage. Also, the door locks, power windows and the defroster fan would not work as well. Changing the ac relay did not work. The local parts guy said the Intrepid has no fuse link, but it seems that power is lost to a large area of the car.


Check to see if you oversprayed on some of the electrical connectors, and also make sure you didn't overfill the system. If you overfill the system, the compressor will not engage. Third, make sure you check both fuse boxes. ... 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1996 oldsmobile eighty eight no start no power windows. Car stalled driving up hill. Fuses are ok, battery voltage is ok. Power windows did work before it stalled. Maybe a main relay could be the cause? Any help would be great.


How did you determine that the voltage is OK? Will it run the headlights, brakelights, and horn at the same time? It could have enough voltage without enough amperage(power). It could be a loose cable - that is what I would check first. ... 1996 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
