Customer Question
2004 mazda 3. Whenever...
2004 mazda 3. Whenever high beam lights are turned on, directionals, interior lights, rear window defrost stop working. Have to shut off car and restart with lowbeams in order for directionals to work again. Now this morning started car let run to warm up and headlights slowly dimmed and car stalled and battery was dead . Had to jump with battery charger. Saw that high beams were on. Is this related to highbeam issue or something else going on.

Over the very cold weekend we had here (20 below) it started fine.... is this something that comes over time? Or will occur quickly? Once the car got running after charging it ran fine to work....
