The window switch on the drivers door panel which is meant to activate the passenger window does not work. The switch in the passenger door does activate the window however. A minor issue, but surprising nevertheless.

I had the same problem when I first got my car and it's easy to fix. It just needs to get woken up.
Turn car to "on"
Roll down passenger window (from passenger side) all the way. Then roll passenger window up all the way holding it for 3 seconds.
Repeat on Drivers Side.
From drivers side repeat with both buttons simultaneously.

Have any of you experienced a very hot ignition key? It seems after I drive the car the switch is quite hot.

Has anyone had problems with the rear stop light housings?
my lens melted, I found out after having owned my car for 2 years. I had the original buls from the factory, it appears that the bulbs give off a very high amount of heat and that the plastic utilized in the construction of the lens is brittle and not of able to withstand the intense heat from the bulbs.
Anyways, my brake lights work but the lens melted. As always I contacted mazda but they have turned a blind eye on my complaint.....

Sometimes the drivers side passenger window control will not work and when this happens the passenger side tail light is also not working.

Passenger window stopped working so looked on here as I have now done daily with issues the CX7 seems to have. It worked! Thanks for the advice. At least it was a quick fix and nothing I needed to take to dealer to drain my pocket. Keep up the good post.
