2013 Mazda CX-5 had a dead battery 2x in 24 hrs. Is it the battery or a bigger electrical issue?

Asked by Nov 10, 2014 at 12:09 AM about the 2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I thought I may have left a door open over night and an inside light
exhausted the battery. I jumped it and it started but I didn't drive
anywhere. Today, 24 hrs after it was jumped it's dead again. Less
than 24 mos old and only 4700 mi. Is this a problem anyone else
has experienced?

How long did you let it run once you jump started it?

Take it to the dealer. Let them look it over. The battery dieing twice in on day isn't normal.

I let it run approx. 10 min. I did go back into my garage 30 mins after and it started.

I would jump it again this time let it run, with everything in the car turned off, for at least a half an hour to 45 min. If it's dead the next day, do as Mark said take it to the dealer. It will be under warranty still.

If you look on the Mazda CX-5 forum(24-7 mazda) many people have this problem,I myself encountered this problem and I knew it was just Mazda using cheap japanese batteries,I am a really paranoid person and I never leave anything on and once I saw that others were having this problem I knew it was mazda being cheap!Although in your case it might be different,I advise you join that forum,very helpful!

Hi There: I'm new to this forum, and saw your post. I'm not all that thrilled about the Mazda CX-5 battery: mine is a 2014, and I was told that the battery needs replacing (after 2.5 years). This is a first. My 2004 Mazda Protoge 5 has the original battery. Sad...

I have had the same problem with my 2014 mazda cx5. After 3 days in the garage the car would not start. I had it jump started by Mazda Breakdown. The mechanic showed me it was at 14. 4 volts before he left. I immediately took the car out on a run tested the voltage when I got back it was 14.3 volts but only 12.2 the next morning. I went on holiday using the car for 50 + miles each day and tested the voltage each morning I was as low as 11.8 volts. Clearly either the battery is useless or something unknown is using current. I have had more problems with this car than I have had with my last 5 cars. ( in total)
