It worked! Thank you very much. I just bought a 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 and my fiance has a 2007 Mazda 3 s touring. I had no idea that this could be done.

My Car is Living Proof that you Can Absolutely unlock the Trip Computer for the 2008 Mazda 3 s Sport.
I just unlocked my 2008 Mazda 3 s Sport Model Trip Computer. It displays in place of the clock.
Follow the directions for the 2007.
When you get Dis On displayed, hold the :00 for 2-5 seconds and check to see if the display changes. If not (mine didn't) Follow the next directions.
Disconnect the negative to the battery.
Wait a minute or 2.
Reconnect the battery.
Turn the car to acc and turn on the radio.
You should have lost your presets and your clock is now wrong.
You will need to do 2 things here.
First of all, so you don't forget, roll your driver side window down all the way and then roll it back up and hold the switch in the up position for at least 2 seconds after. (This turns on the one touch all the way down feature)
Second, hold your :00 button for 2-5seconds and release. When you release, your trip computer should display. To toggle through each option just hit the :00 button. This should stay on for good.
Good Luck, I have been working on getting this working for weeks and only just got it figured out while I was installing my iPod Integration Kit. Enjoy!

Anybody know if this would work on a 2008 Mazda3 S Touring with the 6 disc changer (non Bose)?
I am debating hard whether to get the S Touring with leather/moon or the Grand Touring w/ bose/moon (it's a $1,300 difference and I want to save every penny I can).

I have an 08 3i Touring with a six disc changer. I got this hack to work in about 2 minutes. Very easy simply follow the steps and the DIS ON will show...then unhook the negative on your battery and hold the :00 button down for 3 seconds and let off and it will work...dont forget to reset your one touch window.....but I can say that it for sure without a doubt works on the 08 Mazda3 i Touring with a six disc

I also have a 08 i touring, do you have a 6 cd in dash, I have the single, and cant seem to get it to work. If you have a single it means I am doing something wrong, and therefore might be able to get it done.
Please drop me a line if you get the chance and let me know how you go this to work.

I also have a 3i touring, but for whatever reason cannot get the trip hack to work.
Do you have a 6 cd in-dash? Im starting to think the hack only works for 6 cd in dash units, I have a single.
Let me know if you figured something out,

I got mine to work, but I do have the 6 cd in dash.
It didnt work the first time, because I didn't leave the negative disconnected long enough. I gave it a minute instead of a few seconds on the 2nd try and it worked.
#49 of 79 security light on dash won't go out

I have a 2006 Mazda 3 and had new tires put on today and got some gas and when I got home the security light won't go out. I have checked the doors and the trunk and the gas cap all appear to be ok.
