2012 Mazda3 - Ultragauge Doesn't Shut Down
« on: February 02, 2013, 04:47:50 PM »
Hello,

I just installed my Ultragauge in my 2012 Mazda3.  When I turn off the car and remove the key the Ultragauge continues to display.  Is there a way I can get it to shut down?  It worked fine in my Fords.  Mine is not the latest Ultragauge.

Thanks.

Its a defect in the Mazda.  Once the ignition is switched off, turn it back on and UG will shut off.
When the ignition is shut off on the  2012 Mazda 3  continues to return engine parameters equal to that of just before the ignition was switched off.
Version 1.2 of UG uses a completely different method of detecting ignition off and the Mazda defect does not create an issue

Thank you for the reply. Looks like I'll be sending in my UG for the upgrade.

Older units can not be upgraded to version 1.2

I have Version 1.1, Dec 2010. Am I out of luck?

You have a Classic UltraGauge.
It can't be upgraded to version 1.2.
However, it could benefit from an upgrade to the UltraGauge EM pre version 1.2, which is nearly the same except for the Addition of a Voltage Gauge and new power on and power off detection modes.

Thanks for the help.  So, if I upgrade mine it still won't shut down automatically when I use it with my 2012 Mazda3?

Only version 1.2 has the correction for the Mazda defect.  Hence all pre v1.2 UGs will not power off due to the defect.
