2013 Mazda CX-5 had a dead battery 2x in 24 hrs. Is it the battery or a bigger electrical issue?
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
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)
I have the same problem wit my mazda cx5 2013 and in my case is the 4 battery I change in 6 moths
Same problem . After charging the battery x 3 and not being able to start it again, found out it needs a new alternator. Bummer
2015 CX-5. Less than 20k miles. AAA out to jumpstart the vehicle 4 times in 2 months. Replaced battery. Problem started again but effected windows and stereo. Master mechanic buddy told me electric system was on the brink. Took to dealership—they treated me like a twit. I took the Mazda across the street and traded it for a 2014 Honda CRV. Should have bought it in the first place.
