    BSM Off Flashing

    Interesting.... here's a theory for that one. I can't remember what the CX9 looks like under the rear bumper but most cars have a little vent with slats covered by pieces of rubber. The purpose of this vent it to have neutral cabin pressure so the air pumped in for heating and cooling can flow...

    BSM Off Flashing

    It ended up being a bad BSM module. There are two - one in each corner of the bumper. Cost $850 installed if memory serves me correctly. Since I find the option a nuisance I asked if they could disable it while keeping the blinking light off and the answer was no. Apparently there is an easy...

    Anyone have a PDF version of the CX-9 Factory Repair / Service Manual?

    Had a BSM fail and had to use the manual to remove the rear bumper and test the module. It came in very handy. brian

    Anyone have a PDF version of the CX-9 Factory Repair / Service Manual?

    It's monty2003 here. I can assure you there is no trojan or anything like that but my virus scanner does pick flag a trojan on nonethewiser.net I use this domain for other items and a long time ago I used a frontpage script to create animation. That script is now flagged as malicious so I think...

    BSM Off Flashing

    Interesting.... The only thing I've done to this car was to install the homelink mirror. Part of that involved splicing into the existing harness. The installation kit included splices which were pretty foolproof but you never know.... Any chance you installed a homelink mirror? Still haven't...

    BSM Off Flashing

    No damage. Sensors are under the rear number on both sides at the corners not too far behind the rear wheels. Looks like i will be doing as you recommend. Hopefully a good cleaning is all that is required. If I can find my software disc I will hook up my obdII scanner check things out. Hopefully...

    BSM Off Flashing

    The BSM OFF light on the dash of our 2008 CX9 GT is flashing. Apparently it has been doing this for three weeks (wife's car) and was not tied to any event. Pushing the button has no effect. I read the factory service manual and there are some voltage and continunity tests to run but I don't...

    Anyone have a PDF version of the CX-9 Factory Repair / Service Manual?

    there's only one zip file. Assuming you're using a PC, save it somewhere and then double click it. The compressed file should open to a folder containing a folder named 2007, a folder named 2008, folder named named owner manual, and then an executable file that will install adobe acrobat reader...

    Missing splash shield (blurry pics inside)

    Odd. Strange for a manufacturer to add parts and holes when they are not used even if it costs pennies. Thanks for checking! Brian

    Anyone have a PDF version of the CX-9 Factory Repair / Service Manual?

    Try right clicking it and selecting "save target as". The file is about 100MB so when you left click it, your browser may actually be downloading the file. If that doesn;t work, try letting the blank screen sit for some time in the event that the large file is being downloaded. Brian

    Missing splash shield (blurry pics inside)

    Had my 2008 CX9 GT up on my 4 post lift today for the first oil change since I've owned it and think there is a splash shield missing. Can someone confirm. Here are two pics - two empty clips are visible near the front and then two bolt holes are visible about two feet back - just past the...

    Anyone have a PDF version of the CX-9 Factory Repair / Service Manual?

    Can you give me some additional information about the service manual? I purchased a version on EBAY but is very low quality and it is not indexed very well making it only partially useful. Is your service manual the same that the techs use at the dealership? Brian

    Need rain sensor cover for Homelink mirror

    Just finished installing an auto dimming homelink mirror on my 2008 GT and it went well with one exception - the rain sensor cover no longer fits. Apparently the accesory install kit from Mazda has part # 0000-8C-L03 which is a new rain sensor cover. The kit I purchased did not have this part...

    Jack Points?

    Just purchased a Cx9 w/21k miles and it is apparent that the tires have never been rotated.... rear tires have tons of tread and the front are nearing the end of their useful life. I have a nice hydraulic floor jack with a rubber pad and with a few pumps can lift the front of the vehicle by...

    About to buy a CX9 - anything I should look for?

    Thanks guys - we brought home a 2008 GT tonight from a Mazda dealer as a certified pre owned purchase. The silver trim was trashed and we printed out the TSB and brought it in and the dealer agreed to fix it. Car only had one smart card and they are going to give us a second for free. Tires are...

    About to buy a CX9 - anything I should look for?

    Hello. This is my first post. I'm about to purchase a used CX-9 - we have a short list of 2008 Grand Touring CX9s with Nav. All of them have between 25k and 35k miles. Are there any issues that I should be on the lookout for specific to CX9s or grand touring options? I do almost all of the...
