#3334 of 4030 Anybody with Radio Experience?
Apr 22, 2005 (3:28 pm)
So my Millenia 2000s radio (in-dash player, not the trunk mounted multidisk player) began to skip while playing CDs. I asked everyone around about this and the advice was that even very skilled shops couldn't do anything with the "Mazda Diversity" system because the schematics are not available and parts are not available.
It seems that you could take it to Mazda dealer, they send it somewhere for weeks, the bill is high and then the dealer marks that up 40%. Unappealing.
Current advice is to scrap the player and install a new Alpine/ Pioneer/ whatever.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to stick with high octane premium gas from one of the major dealers for awhile, and see if that solves the problem.
That means paying a buck a litre for gas up here in Manitoba.. but if it means better performance, it's worth the few extra bucks.
#3336 of 4030 Gas door release not working
Apr 24, 2005 (7:23 pm)
Wouldn't you know it.. I go to gas up today, and my gas door won't open! (2001 Millenia S, 10000 km) I kept pressing the gas door button, but nothing happened.. it took several tries before I finally manged to get it to pop open. Now I tried it again tonight, and it doesn't work.
I intend to bring it in as soon as I can, but it would be helpful if someone could give me some insight into what may be the problem here.. i.e. why isn't the gas door release mechanism working? The car is still practically brand new.

That happened to me and the dealer just sprayed some silicon on the hinge and release tab where it catches on the post and it works fine, now I do it myself about once a month just to keep it slick.

I have owned my "Milli" for 5 years and she's great. New paint, 20' wheels and tires, side view mirror blinkers and custom stereo are just a few things I have done so far. My question for anyone out there is I was thinking about installing Lambo doors on the car. If anyone has attempted to do the level of custom work to their "Milli" they will know that there is not much of a market or this model car. Just wanted to know if anyone has tried it or what you think. Thank you.

Turned out the release tab was a little too tight, and wasn't allowing the door to pop open. A simple adjustment on the tab, plus some lubricant on the hinges, and it works fine now.

How's it going, george25? Do you have pictures of your esteemed Milly? I don't see why one can't install Lamborghini doors in the car. I remember seeing a universal kit used in MTV's "Pimp My Ride" not too long ago.
I'd like to put sidemarkers on the side mirrors, as well. Do you have a flip trunk in your ride, as well? I bought a kit off eBay, but have yet to install it. I don't like the standard goose necks.

It's amazing how history repeats itself and how common Millenia owners have to face basically pretty much the same problems over and over.
Awful to hear that a +/- 35,000.00$ cdn car has audio components issues.
If i'm not mistaking Nagamichi manufactures(d) Millenia's head units.
My opnion, like you say: crap the OEM & install a good aftermarket (Alpine); a little pricey but woth the money.Of course you can buy any brand you like.
Personally i removed & replaced all OEM audio from my '00 S & built it from scratch. Apline HU, Boston Components (doors & rear deck) Cerwin-Vega sub,
Alpine Amp. Sounds great and costed well under 2000.00$ cdn.

Hey george25, do you any pics. of your ride? Sounds like an awesome Milly!
I got some blinkers also but i haven't done anything yet. Can you explain the procedure? on this forum or email me!
Good luck with the Lambo doors!

I have a question, I have a 2001 Mazda Millenia, and just today as I was driving I noticed that the brake petal went all the way down... And the next thing I knew I couldn't stop!! So.. I let go of the break... tried it again and it worked. Decided to drive it a little bit more.. then.. my emergency break light came on.. I freaked!!! Pulled over and read the manual, it said... "You may notice that the pedal is harder to push or that it may go closer to the floor. It says to check the brake fluid... it should be at Max... after adding fluid check the light" Ok so I check... it was at Min, I added break fluid.. and decided to drive around a little bit more... And I still notice that the petal is going closer to the ground... I am calling my mechanic tomorrow.. but I just figured I would post this.. and see if this has happened to anyone else... Please let me know!! I am a little frantic!! Thanks!!!
