2014 Mazda CX-5: Another Audio Issue

June 17, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

Just the other day we told you about the intermittent iPod, today it's done something even stranger.

When listening to the stereo via ANY source, the stereo will cut out all but the right rear speaker for 5 seconds to upwards of a minute. The balance/fader settings don't change, nor do they work during this time of interrupted music. Sound comes from one speaker and there's nothing you can do about it.

We had an appointment for service anyways; they'll look at this, too.
