I failed to mention that the Bluetooth module was replaced on my Mazda6 about 6 months after I bought the car in 11/2008.
As a follow up to the different phone brands, I now have an HTC phone and the reception is even better than with the Nokia I had last November. It is almost like talking to someone just 5 feet away....! Clear as can be..!

Is it possible that water is getting in the headlight housing ?
If water or moisture gets in the housing, it would cause this.
Also, with the car running, what is the measured voltage at the battery? If it is much higher than 14 volts, you might have a problem with the voltage regulator and or alternator.

#2707 of 2862 battery problems/09 Mazda 6
Jun 23, 2012 (5:17 pm)
I left town for 5 day and when I returned my battery was dead. after replacing the battery the alarm continued to go off. I spoke to gresham mazda and they advised me to change the batteried in the remotes and so i did....the service man didn't know that if yiu put the key in the door to reset it, the alarm goes off. duh!! SO after finally getting the alarm to turn off now the car still wont start. had a neighborhood mechanic look at it and advised me to replace the main fuse....SO I ordered a fuse, which was not available...had to order this part that took 3 days to arrive. replaced the main fuse and the car STILL won't start...ANYONE ever had this problem? I will say this is the 2nd time my battery has died in the past 6 months. I guess the Mazda dealer wants me to beleive this is normal when its sitting for 5 day. REALLY???!!!
#2708 of 2862 are nuts enough support for the tires?
Jul 26, 2012 (10:18 am)
I rotated my tires on my 2009 Mazda6. I noticed that the rims are not supported by any protruding part of the axle as in most cars. They basically fit flat on the axle with nothing to support them but the nuts and the screws coming out of the hub. Is this enough, or did I miss something when I was putting them back on.

2009, it's time for a new battery.
Mazda does have a small discharge as you'll notice something flashing on your dash. 5 days is a long time without starting. Your battery should also be wrapped in insulation to keep the heat off and keep the cold off. I also installed a small 120 ma solar panel on mine (mounted to visor). Between the 2 it has been working great. I also suggest adding extra ground wires from the negative terminal of the battery to the following: engine block, car body, tranny (if automatic), throttle body. Mazda original wires are minimal.
#2710 of 2862 Auxiliary Input Issue
Jan 12, 2013 (6:02 pm)
I have a 2009 Mazda 6I Grand Touring edition and I am experiencing issues with the auxiliary input. When I select AUX, it tries to switch over but almost immediately goes to FM instead. I have my tablet connected and consistently use it to play music. (I don't really use the BT connection because it drops at times without warning and will take a minute or two to reconnect whereas the AUX connection is far more stable.) It used to happen very sporadically and when I called customer service I was told to restart the car but was never given an explanation why this was happening. Restarting the car does fix the problem but its happening with greater frequency and its an inconvenience if I'm already on the expressway when I notice the problem. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it? I'm over 93k miles so its not covered under the warranty.

Took a test drive of the Grand Touring this weekend. First time in a Mazda as I'm basically an Accord guy. The salesman mentioned that there is "no scheduled service" required. I believe he was referring to the 30,60,90k schedule of most mfgrs.
How can that be?
