Mazda CX-5 Japanese Imported, Tech Pack option. Any owners in Auckland?
I've got a JDM Mazda6, has a few of the Tech pack features (Keyless Entry, AFS) - Techpack didn't exist on that model!
Can't say i really use the AFS much, It's more of a set and forget thing.
Keyless though is a two edged sword, It's amazing when it works, a pain in the ass if it doesn't. Few proof of concepts out there on how this could be exploited etc..
Any comments made are personal opinion and do not reflect directly on the position my current or past employers may have.
So far I can report success of my Japanese to English Dash Conversion process on Mazda CX-5 JDM SkyActive 2012-2014 - Gas and Diesel models:
SOP includes Dash Firmware complete back up / back out plan. Auckland-wide.
Potentially can trial that in Wellington.
Today's conversions: Mazda CX-5 2013 Diesel JDM Import. Owners is high-tech software developer. They were using Google Translate before but because of few recent warning notifications decided to have it in English.
After conversion. They have weak main battery (not caused any DTC though) which is now communicated in English:
In previous 2014 CX-5 conversion there was warning about low battery in FOB with corresponding DTC captured by the scanner, owner did not pay much attention to it when it was in Japanese.
