been there....several times with this issue 2007 CX9
True it did shut off after a while.... definitely more than 30 seconds in my case.
Had the relays done at least 4 times. Not gonna beat up on Mazda, I do like the vehicles.... but man oh man 13 times to the shop in less than 1 yr.
The last thing was a unusual "click" only heard for a moment when accelerating , or putting it into drive. I was told it was the "clips that are on the brake pads"
LOL.... I ask how can that be, when I hear it when I just let the car slow down without using the brake.
....It was the transmission. 2 other things too. I started to hear a constant tapping coming from the rear (inside) passenger third row..... took a long time to find it. But found the spot welds under the carpeting and in the rear qtr panel were separating and that i was hearing was the sheet metal rattling against itself on any bumps... had to listen to that for months... the other thing was no matter which way you turn the wheel, the creaking and clunking noises like the front end was made from an old wood ship....

Clicking is coming from the axle shaft splines having a slight play between them and the splines in the hub assembly. The fix is to have them greased up to stop the clicking...works like a charm!
Creaking/clunking noise from the front end is coming from the bump stops rubbing on the strut rod. The fix is to raise the vehicle and lather/grease up the bump stops and strut rod with white lithium grease, dielectric grease or any other heavy grease that is water proof....works like a charm as well!

Recently I learned that choosing a good dealer to maintain your vehicle is probably more important than choosing a brand of vehicle.
I absolutely love my Mazda dealer near where I work.
It adds greatly to my satisfaction of owning my CX9.
On the relays.
The replacement relays are not just "new" relays. They are actually different relays in design (even different in color). I am not sure your dealer has been aware of this....

FYI: Relay part number is G115-67-730 you need two of them.
#355 of 547 CX9 steering wheel locking
Oct 24, 2010 (1:00 pm)
I have a 2008 CX9 GT which I love. However, I have had several issues with the steering wheel locking and being unable to start the car. This was fixed once with a new wiring harness in 2008 but has happened again. It happened with both the remote start and regular start. I also had the car lock with the keys INSIDE which is supposed to be impossible. The dealer has been unable to explain or fix the locking issue. I am going to be driving for ten hours at Thanksgiving and am getting worried about the car not being drivable.
#356 of 547 2007 CX9 programming issues after battery change
Oct 27, 2010 (2:15 am)
The dealership recently recommended changing my battery. I agreed to let them change it because I was worried about programming issues if the battery went dead and was changed at home.
Since the change the passenger side window would not operate properly. I took it back to dealership and was charged $40 to reprogram the window. Now I have noticed the ipod plug is no longer charging, today the driver's side window has lost it programming, and the rain sensing wipers are not working. Has anyone else experienced these programming issues after changing the battery or is this just some weird fluke?

I know for sure that the windows need to be reprogrammed if the battery goes dead or is replaced. In fact most of the reprogramming rituals are described in the owners manual, the fact that these crooks gouged you for an extra $40 for what they should have done in the first place when replacing the battery is beyond my comprehension. If I were you I'd go back to the stealership and ask to speak to a manager and demand your $40 back because they should have reprogrammed your windows, wipers, et.al. when you paid them to replace the battery. JMHO
#359 of 547 Is my CX-9 only one with many problems?
Nov 02, 2010 (9:21 pm)
I bought 2010 Mazda CX-9 in March and have had many problems since. I would like to share my bad experiences and get your insights.
1. In 2 months, transmission valve broke down and shift gear only went to 3rd. I had my car in the dealer shop for a week to fix it.
2. In the hot summer, the front windows bounced back down after they hit the top as if there was an object sensored.
3. The side mirror (driver side) vibrates badly after 45 MPH. I took the car to dealers 3 times, they could not fix. I was told that other CX-9s were found with the same problem and with many customer inquiries. I called Mazda Service and was told that there is nothing Mazda would do about it and has no plan to fix it since there is no safety concern so I should bear with the problem. This is ridiculous! Evertime I drive I see shaking objects in the mirror driving me crazy.
DOES ANYONE WITH CX-9 HAVE SIMILAR PROBLEM?

My apologies for the confusion regarding our response. Without complicating the matter further, please accept the following as our official response. Mazda has determined your vehicle to be operating within factory specifications, so a repair to your side mirror would not be performed.

The face of a side mirror on the driver side starts vibrating when my car goes over 50 MPH, making it impossible to identify the objects behind the car in the mirror. I took my car to the dealer 3 times but the problem did not go away. I found from Mazda dealers that there are several CX-9's with the same problem. I filed a complaint case (131420200) with the customer service and the customer service rep name by Tim (x1179) told me that it is just the way the CX-9 is made and it would be too bad if I didnít like it but I would have to live with the problem since there is no "safety" concern with the problem.
