Gate operator/Canadian
Programming

Canadian radio-frequency laws require
transmitter signals to “time-out” (or
quit) after several seconds of
transmission 

ʊ

 which may not be long

enough for HomeLink to pick up the
signal during programming. Similar to
this Canadian law, some U.S. gate
operators are designed to “time-out”
in the same manner.

If you live in Canada or are having
difficulties programming a gate
operator by using the programming
procedures (regardless of where you
live), 

replace Step 3 of Programming

the HomeLink System

 with the

following:

NOTE

If programming a garage door opener
or gate operator, it is advised to unplug
the device during the “cycling” process
to prevent possible overheating.

While the indicator light is flashing in
amber, press the button on the
hand-held transmitter for 2 seconds
and release it repeatedly until the
indicator light changes from amber to
green.
Go back to Step 4 of Programming the
HomeLink System to complete the
procedure.

Operating the HomeLink System

Press the programmed HomeLink
button to operate a programmed
device.

Reprogramming the HomeLink
system

To program a device to HomeLink
using a HomeLink button previously
trained, follow these steps:
1. Press and hold the desired

HomeLink button. 

DO NOT

 release

the button.

2. After 20 seconds, the indicator light

flashes in amber. After the indicator
light flashes, release the HomeLink
button.

3. Go back to Step 2 of Programming

the HomeLink System to complete
the procedure.

NOTE

If the programming has not been
completed, the system returns to the
previous programming.

Erasing Programmed HomeLink
Buttons

NOTE

x

All of the programmed HomeLink
buttons are reset. Individual buttons
cannot be reset, however, individual
buttons can be reprogrammed. For
individual button reprogramming,

Garage Door Two-Way
Communication

The garage door two-way
communication is a function that
communicates with the garage door
opener and indicates whether the
garages door is open or closed using
the indicator lights in the rear view
mirror. It can indicate the status of the
garage door within a range up-to 250
m (820 ft).

NOTE

The communication range may shorten
depending on obstructions.

Programming two-way
communication

Within five seconds after programming
a new HomeLink button, both of the
garage door status indicator lights will
flash rapidly in green indicating that
the garage door two-way
communication has been established.
If the garage door status indicator
lights flash, the two-way
communication programming is
complete.

If the garage door status indicator
lights do not flash, the two-way
communication programming is not
completed. For additional HomeLink
information and programming videos,

Brake System

Foot Brake

This vehicle has power-assisted brakes
that adjust automatically through
normal use.

Should power-assist fail, you can stop
by applying greater force than normal
to the brake pedal. But the distance
required to stop will be greater than
usual.

WARNING

Do not coast with the engine stalled
or turned off, find a safe place to stop:

Coasting with the engine stalled or
turned off is dangerous. Braking will
require more effort, and the brake's
power-assist could be depleted if you
pump the brake. This will cause longer
stopping distances or even an
accident.

Shift to a lower gear when going
down steep hills:

Driving with your foot continuously on
the brake pedal or steadily applying
the brakes for long distances is
dangerous. This causes overheated
brakes, resulting in longer stopping
distances or even total brake failure.
This could cause loss of vehicle control
and a serious accident. Avoid
continuous application of the brakes.

Dry off brakes that have become wet
by driving slowly, releasing the
accelerator pedal and lightly applying
the brakes several times until the
brake performance returns to normal:

Driving with wet brakes is dangerous.
Increased stopping distance or the
vehicle pulling to one side when
braking could result in a serious
accident. Light braking will indicate
whether the brakes have been
affected.

CAUTION

¾

Do not drive with your foot held on
the clutch pedal or brake pedal, or
hold the clutch pedal depressed
halfway unnecessarily. Doing so
could result in the following:

¾

The clutch and brake parts will
wear out more quickly.

¾

The brakes can overheat and
adversely affect brake
performance.

¾

Always depress the brake pedal with
the right foot. Applying the brakes
with the unaccustomed left foot
could slow your reaction time to an
emergency situation resulting in
insufficient braking operation.

¾

Wear shoes appropriate for driving in
order to avoid your shoe contacting
the brake pedal when depressing the
accelerator pedal.

Brake Pad Wear Indicator

When the disc brake pads become
worn, the built-in wear indicators
contact the disc plates. This causes a
screeching noise to warn that the pads
should be replaced.

When you hear this noise, consult an
Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as
possible.

WARNING

Do not drive with worn disc pads:

Driving with worn disc pads is
dangerous. The brakes could fail and
cause a serious accident. As soon as
you hear a screeching noise consult an
Authorized Mazda Dealer.

NOTE

In high humidity weather conditions,
brake noises, such as brake squeak or
brake squeal can be heard. It does not
indicate a malfunction.

Brake Assist

During emergency braking situations
when it is necessary to depress the
brake pedal with greater force, the
brake assist system provides braking
assistance, thus enhancing braking
performance.

When the brake pedal is depressed
hard or depressed more quickly, the
brakes apply more firmly.

NOTE

x

When the brake pedal is depressed
hard or depressed more quickly, the
pedal will feel softer but the brakes
will apply more firmly. This is a
normal effect of the brake assist
operation and does not indicate a
malfunction.

x

When the brake pedal is depressed
hard or depressed more quickly, a
motor/pump operation noise may
be heard. This is a normal effect of
the brake assist and does not
indicate a malfunction.

x

The brake assist equipment does not
supersede the functionality of the
vehicle's main braking system.

AUTOHOLD

AUTOHOLD

The AUTOHOLD function automatically holds the vehicle stopped, even if you take
your foot off the brake pedal. This function can be best used while stopped in traffic
or at a traffic light. The brakes are released when you start driving the vehicle.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the AUTOHOLD function:

The AUTOHOLD function is only designed to assist the brake operation while the
vehicle is stopped. Neglecting to operate the brakes and relying only on the
AUTOHOLD system is dangerous and could result in an unexpected accident if the
vehicle were to suddenly move. Operate the brakes appropriately in accordance
with the road and surrounding conditions.
Note that the vehicle may move suddenly depending on the vehicle's load or if it is
towing something.

Do not release your foot from the brake pedal while the vehicle is stopped on a
steep grade:

Because there is a possibility of the vehicle not being held in the stopped position by
the AUTOHOLD function, the vehicle may move unexpectedly and result in an
accident.

Do not use the AUTOHOLD function on slippery roads such as icy or
snow-covered roads, or unpaved roads:

Even if the vehicle is held in the stopped position by the AUTOHOLD function, the
vehicle may move unexpectedly and result in an accident. Operate the accelerator
pedal, brakes, or steering wheel appropriately as necessary.

Immediately depress the brake pedal in the following cases:

Because the AUTOHOLD function is canceled forcibly, the vehicle may move
unexpectedly and result in an accident.

If the Electric Parking Brake (EPB)
switch is pulled while the
AUTOHOLD is operating, the
parking brake is applied and the
AUTOHOLD is released. In addition,
if the parking brake is released under
this condition, the AUTOHOLD
operates to hold the brakes.

x

Under the following conditions, the
parking brake is automatically
applied and the AUTOHOLD is
released. The AUTOHOLD is
re-enabled when the conditions
before the AUTOHOLD is released
are restored.

x

The driver’s seat belt is unfastened.

x

The driver’s door is opened.

x

When about 10 minutes or longer
have passed since the AUTOHOLD
operation started, the parking brake
is automatically applied. Because the
AUTOHOLD is restored when
releasing the parking brake, the hold
on the brakes by AUTOHOLD
function resumes.

(Manual transmission vehicle)

When starting to drive the vehicle
forward or in reverse on a down
slope, depress the clutch pedal and
shift the shift lever to the appropriate
position for driving in the desired
direction, and then depress the
accelerator pedal to release the
AUTOHOLD.

x

The AUTOHOLD can be canceled
forcibly by fully depressing the
accelerator pedal for 1 second or
longer while the AUTOHOLD is
operating. Forcibly cancel the
AUTOHOLD only when the
AUTOHOLD cannot be canceled due
to a system malfunction or it is
necessary to cancel the AUTOHOLD
in an emergency.

Hill Launch Assist (HLA)

Hill Launch Assist (HLA)

The HLA functions to assist in
accelerating the vehicle from a stop on
slopes. When releasing the brake pedal
and depressing the accelerator pedal
to accelerate the vehicle from a stop
while on a slope, the function prevents
the vehicle from rolling. The HLA also
operates when reversing on a slope.
The braking force is maintained
automatically after releasing the brake
pedal on a steep slope.
For manual transmission vehicles, the
HLA operates when the vehicle is tilted
rearward with the shift lever in a
forward gear, and operates when the
vehicle is tilted forward with the shift
lever in the R position.
For automatic transmission vehicles,
the HLA operates when the vehicle is
tilted rearward with the selector lever
in a forward gear, and operates when
the vehicle is tilted forward with the
selector lever in the R position.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on HLA:

HLA is an auxiliary device for
accelerating from a stop on a slope.
The system only operates for about 2
seconds and therefore, relying only on
the system, when accelerating from a
stop is dangerous because the vehicle
may move (roll) unexpectedly and
cause an accident.
The vehicle could roll depending on
the vehicle's load or if it is towing
something. In addition, for vehicles
with a manual transmission, the
vehicle could still roll depending on
how the clutch pedal or the accelerator
pedal is operated.

Always confirm the safety around the
vehicle before starting to drive the
vehicle.

NOTE

x

HLA does not operate on a gentle
slope. In addition, the gradient of
the slope on which the system will
operate changes depending on the
vehicle's load.

x

HLA does not operate if the parking
brake is applied, the vehicle has not
stopped completely, or the clutch
pedal is released.

x

While HLA is operating, the brake
pedal may feel stiff and vibrate,
however, this does not indicate a
malfunction.

x

HLA does not operate while the
TCS/DSC indicator light is
illuminated.
Refer to TCS/DSC Indication/
Indicator Light (Turns on) on page
7-33.

x

HLA does not turn off even if the
DSC OFF switch is pressed to turn off
the TCS/DSC.
