Mazda RX-8 'M-Tips' - Service Techs

Here is a list of Mazda's (NA) M-Tips pertaining to the RX-8.

These are "tips" concerning 'issues or problems' for Mazda Dealer Technicians.

All RX-8 model years and series...please note the Model Year in reference to your car.

They may give you some help and advice in rectifying a Technical issue you may have or are experiencing.

Note: There is a possibility an 'issue' has already been resolved by your Mazda Dealer some time ago.

Remote Keyless entry system will not unlock doors

If you encounter a customer concern regarding doors not
unlocking when using the Remote Keyless Entry System, check
for possible installation of aftermarket LED light bulbs. These
bulbs may produce electrical noise that may interfere with the
operation of the Remote Keyless Entry System.


If you determine the Remote Keyless Entry System door unlock
malfunction is caused by an aftermarket accessory, inform the
customer and do not attempt any repairs to the vehicle.

2004-2011 Engine Stalls After Engine Replacement

PDF CORRECTION WARNING..

I did not want to post this 'updated M-Tip' as the INJECTOR Colors information in it for Series II Engines is WRONG.....(and yes attempts have been made to MNAO over the past 10 months to have it rectified...all on deaf ears).

PRIMARY..........GREEN.........#N3R1-13-250......NOT RED as in this M-Tip

SECONDARY....Dark RED......#N3R2-13-250......NOT BLUE as in this M-Tip

For ALL Series II 6 Port Engines...

2 X PRIMARY Green Injectors install directly into the intermediate Iron Housing.
2 X SECONDARY Dark Red Injectors install into the LIM
