Question Mazda 6 Skyactive Sport Nav+ Auto Locks and Windows

Mazda 6 Skyactive Sport Nav+ Auto Locks and Windows 2019 New Model

We have just taken delivery of the new model which is great but we have found some shortcomings that are a safety issue for the person getting into the car unless you guys know better and can advise.
When pressing the request switch (keyless) or the unlock on the fob, all the doors unlock, this is a safety issue for my wife as anyone could be lurking and jump into the car etc. Does anyone know how to programme the fob and locks, it cannot be done from the command screen. This link gives instructions but I cannot get it to work unless I am being thick here www mazda6info dot net/locking_unlocking_with_request_switch_door_handle_ with_the_advanced_keyless_function_-7 dot html Mazda 6 Owners Manual - Locking, Unlocking with Request Switch, Door Handle (With the advanced keyless function) - Door Locks

The other question, is there a setting to close all open windows by pressing and holding a fob key? This does not seem to work either. Mazda service guys are no help at all but then again a few years ago I had to educate VW technicians that Bi-Zenon headlights could be adjusted for continental driving by using the computer settings in the command module, they were amazed!

The head-up display is slightly tilted, (not showing straight on the windscreen) even though it's at full rotation, is this common on the sixes?

Even the radio cannot be used unless the key is in the car which really is a bit silly. My daughter likes the music on whilst waiting but we do not leave the key in the car for obvious reasons. Does anyone know any different?

So far we have found a big difference from our VW CC that had lots of features, radio worked without a key, security door opening, full closure and opening of windows when required. Only had it a day or so but finding small things that mean a lot and as its the top of the range model we expected these small things to be there. You don't think about it when test driving and if you did the sales staff would not know all the answers anyway.

The safety features, why we decided to change our car are good although the radar is a bit snatchy when seeing vehicles in front, it did follow a vehicle though and stopped behind it then set off when the vehicle moved again, a bit strange but useful in stop-start traffic. On the motorway and A roads, one has to pull out a lot further behind a vehicle if the cruise is active otherwise the Mazda slows down, which it is supposed to do, but overtaking needs to be done by pulling out much earlier.

The vehicle seems well made, is surefooted on our country roads and comfortable so a good choice we think and a few grand less than a new VW Arteon the CC replacement but not a patch on the CC.

ANy of you knowledgeable people can shed any light on these small issues please do we would be very grateful for your knowledge. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum!

I have the older version of your car, so I can only help so much since I don't know the newer one's intricacies. @Mz6GreyGhost would be more helpful on those matters.

1) The windows cannot all be rolled down at the same time unless pressing the individual buttons simultaneously inside the car. We do not know why Mazda removed this function from previous generations, or if they'll ever bring it back.

2) Pressing the 'Start' button without your foot on the brake while in the car (with the fob) will put it into classic 'AC' mode. Radio/Center Console on, nothing else. Mine actually requires you do it twice, but I believe that's just my older GT model.

Thanks for the information I believe Mazda may have removed some functionality from my European Model. I do appreciate your help. Cheers again

Thanks for your help it's appreciated 😊. I think mazda may have removed some functionality from my European 2019 model.

Maybe others will have some more advice for me.

Thanks again

There is a personnalization feature for that :

Unfortunately, no. I miss that from my 2nd Gen 6. That and being able to open the moon roof with the key fob.

There is a setting for display angle correction :

You would have to put the car in ACC mode before leaving the car. Have a look here :

Hope that helps a little.

Love that Web manual mazda's put online for the USA. Even though I have a Canadian 6, most of it is identical.

Hi to update, that personalisation feature does not work does not work, I have tried every way to see if it will but I cannot get it to work.

I know about the rotation for the head up display, however, it seems to go back to a slight tilt, guess factory installation could be slightly out.

Is it possible to put the ACC mode on without leaving the key in the car? There is a continuous warning to power off if the key is not present.

There does not seem to be any headlight washers on this model either, I cannot see any on the front and headlights are not wiped when the screen is washed.

Mazda seems to have taken off some features to save a few shillings, false economy really because it took the shine off the new vehicle primarily because of the door locks and safety for my wife and daughter.

Thanks for the suggestions though, at least I tried. Had to remove URL's would not allow me to reply

Honestly, you should have checked these features before purchasing the car. Not sure why someone would assume a car has the same features as another car, especially a different brand.

After adjusting the Heads Up display, save it with the seat memory button. Unless saved to one of the memory buttons it defaults back to the factory setting.

Why would any car allow you to have the ACC on without the key? If you have or have had one it's the first I've heard and anything but common, at least here in the States. Just asking for a dead battery.

Headlight washers? Umm, no.

Regarding the door locks, the models here in the States can be changed in the settings menu. There are several options regarding the locking and unlocking of the doors. If the settings are not available to you I'd be willing to bet the dealer can change them for you.

When I got mine, I felt like the HUD was tilted, too. But I soon came to think it's an optical illusion because of the shape of the "horizon" of the dash below it. I haven't tested it with a level or anything to confirm. I got used to it quickly.

This is great! I had this "problem" and I was wondering why it will go back to its default position whenever I turn off the car.

I got tired of adjusting it so what I did is adjusted my height seat! Crazy solution for me but it worked as I got used to low seating position.

I don't know where I've read it, it says that you should have a low seating position as much as possible. This will let you have a better "feel" of the car.

My 21 year old CR-V wouldn't let you to listen to the radio unless the key is in the car and turned to ACC (accessory) mode.

The last time I was waiting for my wife, I rolled my windows down then switched to ACC to listen to the radio. After some time, it turned off automatically. A bit surprised, I switched it again to ACC. This is also true if you switch on the dome lights and leave it on, it will automatically turn off. Unfortunately, I didn't time it.

Great feature for me as I experienced having a dead battery the following morning because I left open the dome light on our CR-V 98.

Good thing I have a portable JumpStart battery. Now that I mentioned it, I should also buy one for the 6.

The manual or thorough MZD connect programming is done at the car, not the fob.

in MZD
Settings > Vehicle > Door Locks > Unlock Mode.

The Auto door lock mode option at the top selects how you want to lock the car.

Edit: The manual programming requires you to keep IG on (engine off) hit the unlock button, then hit the lock button a corresponding number of times, the number of beeps heard will signal which mode you have programmed (refer to owners manual).
