Power Windows

The ignition switch must be in the ON position for the power windows to operate.

WARNING:
Make sure the opening is clear before closing a window:
Closing power windows are dangerous. A person's hands, head, or even neck could be caught by the window and result in serious injury or even death.

This warning applies especially to children.

Always lock all passenger power windows with the power window lock switch on the driver's side while children are in the vehicle, and never allow children to play with power window switches:
Leaving the power window switches unlocked while children are in the vehicle is dangerous. Power window switches that are not locked with the power window lock switch would allow children to operate power windows unintentionally which could result in serious injury if a child's hands, head or neck becomes caught by the window.

CAUTION:
To prevent burning out the fuse and damaging the power window system, do not open or close more than three windows at once.

NOTE:
- Each passenger power window can be operated with each door switch when the power window lock switch on the driver's door is in the unlocked position.

(POWER WINDOW RESET PROCEDURE).

If the battery was disconnected during vehicle maintenance, or for other reasons such as a switch continues to be operated after the window is fully open/close, the power windows will not fully open and close automatically.

Resetting of the automatic function can be performed using the driver's master control switch or the front passenger door switch.

The power window auto function reset procedure can be done on one or both door switches. The power window auto function will only resume on the side that has been reset.

6. Make sure that the power windows operate correctly using the door switches.

Two-step down function

With the power window completely closed, press the switch lightly and it will open and stop about 3 cm (1 in) from the top.

If you continue to press and hold the switch, the window will resume opening all the way.

NOTE:
Pressing the power window switch once when the window is fully closed will only open it about 3 cm (1 in) to allow convenient ventilation of the cabin.

NOTE:
If you are unable to restore the function despite doing the restore procedure, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Jam-safe window

If a person's hands, head or an object blocks the window during the manual closing operation or the auto-closing operation, the window will stop and open halfway.

WARNING:
Make sure nothing blocks the window just before it reaches the fully closed position or while fully holding up the power window switch:
Blocking the power window just before it reaches the fully closed position or while fully holding up the power window switch is dangerous.

In this case, the jam-safe function cannot prevent the window from stopping. If fingers are caught, serious injuries could occur.

NOTE:
- Depending on driving conditions, a closing power window could stop and start opening when the window feels a shock that is similar to something blocking it.

In the event the jam-safe function activates and the power window cannot be closed automatically, pull and hold the switch fully and the window will close.

- The jam-safe window function does not operate until the system is re-initialized.

Engine-off power window operation

The power window can be operated for about 40 seconds after the ignition switch is turned from the ON position to the ACC or LOCK position with all doors closed. If either front door is opened, the power window will be inoperable.

NOTE:
- For engine-off operation of the power window, the switch must be held up firmly throughout window closure because the auto-closing function will be inoperable.

- The two-step down function is inoperable during engine-off operation.

Opening

Because nobody likes getting into a very hot car, Mazda has introduced a way to open the two front windows and the moonroof as you approach the vehicle to get the air moving before you get in.

WARNING:
Use the auto-window function only when you can see the vehicle and it is in a secure area:
Do not let children play with your keys. If they open the window without your knowing, the open windows are an even bigger invitation to a thief than leaving the doors unlocked.

The windows can be opened for ventilating the cabin before getting in the vehicle.

With unlock button (Keyless entry system)

Press the unlock button on the transmitter once, then press again within 1.5 seconds and hold.

After the doors and the liftgate are unlocked, the two front windows and the moonroof open while the unlock button is pressed.

To stop the windows and the moonroof while opening, release the button.

If the operation is performed from the beginning again, the windows and the moonroof open.
