Iíve searched, but havenít been able to find any topics related to my problem. I have a 2007 I4 Sport HB with Bose. About 2-3 months ago, the radio would ďstay onĒ after shutting the car off.
By ďstay onĒ, I mean that the music (it didnít matter if I was listing to the radio or CDís) would continue to play for ~2-3 seconds, then cut out. The display would stay on for an additional ~2-3 seconds, and then shut off.
This continued for about 4 weeks, so I made an appointment with my local dealer. However, the week before I was to take it in, it stopped doing this. 2 weeks ago, it started again. I made another appointment, but this time it stopped acting up the day before I was to go to the dealer (yesterday). I had to take the car in anyways for another issue, so I asked them to look at it anyways to see if they could see anything. They came back and told me that it was because of my remote car starter. Before Mazda will look at it again, they want the car starter removed ($400).
Has anyone else had this issue? Is there any weight to what they say about the car starter being the problem, or are they passing it off? The car starter was installed by a someone who has been installing them for 30+ years.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
