*1 The headlight and other light settings switch automatically depending on the surrounding brightness detected by the sensor.

Auto-light control

When the headlight switch is in the position and the ignition is
switched ON, the light sensor senses the surrounding lightness or darkness and automatically turns the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination on or off (see chart above).

CAUTION
  • Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield. Otherwise the light sensor will not operate correctly.


  • The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands and scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the position and the
    ignition is switched ON as fingers could be pinched or the wipers and wiper blades could be damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are going to clean the windshield, be sure the wipers are turned off completely when it is particularly tempting to leave the engine running. This is particularly important when clearing ice and snow.

NOTE

Xenon fusion headlight bulbs *

The low-beam bulbs of the headlights have xenon fusion bulbs that produce a bright white beam over a wide area.

WARNING Do not replace the xenon fusion bulbs yourself: Replacing the xenon fusion bulbs yourself is dangerous, because the xenon fusion bulbs require high voltage. You could receive an electric shock if the bulbs are handled incorrectly. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer when replacement is necessary.

NOTE If the headlights fiicker or the brightness weakens, the bulb-life may be depleted and a replacement is necessary. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.
