Whatever the case, find out everything you need to know about resetting a Mazda radio with our helpful guide for Watertown drivers. We’ll walk you through how to reset a car radio easily.

Steps to Resetting a Mazda Radio

See the following steps for resetting a Mazda radio.

Resetting the Infotainment System

Newer Mazda models are equipped with a digital infotainment system. If you notice you are experiencing issues with your information display or the Mazda navigation system, here’s a quick fix.

  • Reset your radio by pressing the music, navigation, and volume buttons at the same time.
  • Hold these three buttons simultaneously for at least 20 seconds.
  • The system should then automatically reboot itself.

Resetting the Bluetooth Connection

If you ever have trouble pairing your Mazda with another device, there may be a problem with your Mazda Connect feature. Here’s how to fix Mazda connection problems.

  • Press and hold the volume, back, and navigation buttons at the same time for ten seconds.
  • Look at the screen and keep following the instructions displayed.

This should allow you to establish a connection.

Performing a Software Update

If you’ve tried all the previous steps and there is no improvement from your radio, a software update may be necessary. This is something you can do yourself, so there is no need to go to a Mazda dealership.

See the steps to update the software:

  • Go to the home screen.
  • Choose settings.
  • Click Systems on the screen.
  • Choose the Gracenote version, OS version, or search for software updates.
  • If there is an available update, the download option will show up on the screen.
  • Select this button.
  • See the update starting.
  • Confirm the update once finished.
