i just bought a 2006 mazda 3 sp and every time i do a u-turn a light comes up on the dash..it's a steering wheel with an exclamation mark next to it..
That is the power steering warning light. You may have an issue with the electric power steering motor, low power steering fluid or a low charge on your battery. You need to bring it to a dealer and have them diagnose it.

Gneff Cracked dash
I bought a 06 mazda3 hatchback on sat.
Today (wed) the dash cracked in the middle above the vents for NO REASON
can't believe it.
there were 2 screws missing in right wheel well liner where it attaches to bumper.
Had to BUY from dealer..installed screws , next day new noise from right side
today dash cracked all the way from the vents to the window...crap!!!!
I've owned an acura for over 200,000 miles plus...no cracks...this sucks.
should start a campaign to make mazda fix...recall...recalll...RECALL.
Is mazda removing well screws to ease tension???I don't get it.

Maybe you are beyond the mileage limit, but I think the '06 had a 4 year bumper to bumper warranty.

is the air bag light the red coloured "person with a circle in front of them"?

Yes, that means the car has detected that the seat is occupied but the weight is too low so the airbag has been disabled. Could be a small person, say below 80 lbs, or a briefcase or other item on the seat.

A little late probably, but just thought I'd confirm-
'06 and before- 4yrs/50k miles powertrain & bumper-to-bumper
'07-'09- 5yrs/60k miles powertrain & 3yrs/36k miles bumper-to-bumper
#77 of 79 Help with Mazda 3 - 2006 Dashboard replacement
Aug 25, 2009 (6:56 am)
I got a new "used" dashboard from a junk yard to have mine replaced because it was not working properly but it appears that the new "used" one does not work with the same ignition keys? Something about the locking system having to be reprogrammed or something?
Has anyone replaced their dashboard? What can be done on my end without having to spend a great deal of money on taking it to the dealer?

I just noticed that my dash is cracked on my 06' Mazda 3 hatchback too. I'm so mad. My husbands 20 year old piece of junk trunk doesn't even have a cracked dash.
The crack is right in the middle of the dash , on either side of the sensor.
Want to see who else has this issue.
