CX-60 No Sound and or Station Information on DAB Radio.

Some CX-60s equipped with the DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) radio may exhibit both of following concerns.
- There is no sound.
- Station information screen does not appear.


This applies to EU CX-60's made from March 15th, 2022 to November 18th, 2022.
Or following VIN numbers, 000001 to 117130 (last 6 Digits).

CAUSE
Improper software of the cars remote tuner.

MASS PRODUCTION CHANGE
Control software of the remote tuner has been modified.

Updated file is 10959 or RT_7000R0A-KAAB_10959.kwi
This is only a small software file of less than 9 MB in size.
You install via a USB C Flash Drive and port in cars console.
Takes about 10 minutes to run.

It appears not all CX-60s within this VIN number range has this issue however I suggest you either complain to your Mazda Dealer that you can't hear or see your selected DAB Stations
and hope they do the software update, or if you wish you can update software yourself by contacting me here via a Direct Message.

Hi,

I had sometimes this problem when the car was started. Then there was no sound and the Station list was empty. Short problem solving: switch off the Mazda Conncet System and switch it on again. It always solved the problem but the final solution will be the SW update.

Thanks ASH8 for the info and the soultion.

Greetings

I’m having a similar issue that is intermittent.

when returning to the car, I get nothing. The only solution I’ve found is to choose FM, then when it comes on, switch back to DAB and it works OK.

It’s not every time, but the vast majority. Very annoying.
Software version on car is 14012..
is there a separate software update for radio ?

No it's not trackable, it is Genuine Mazda. Having worked in Dealerships for decades they could not care less.
THE REASON I do this is because Dealerships worldwide just don't do it unless you complain of an issue, then I hear people get fobbed off.
Don't get me wrong there are some very good Dealerships but are few and far.

Apologies: No dishonesty implied, or offence intended. I only meant doing something away from the Dealer from any source. My son-in-law is a wizard at remapping cars. Currently transforming a Vauxhall Insignia. Offered to remap mine. Declined!.
Naturally aspirated engine thats already quite highly strung, so probably wouldn't see more than 15-20bhp gain in it, no point really imo.

The Turbo Diesel thats coming, I think there is probably a good 60bhp/120nm at a bare minimum lurking there!

Same file I offer, sounds like you have a good Dealer, if your car is with the ViN numbers I posted then ever owner should get the DAB fix done, around 6500 cars need to be done in UK /EU.

I just updated using ash8s file, worked like a charm. Is used an old 8gb usb stick with a usbc to usb adapter frol amazon. Took about 10 minutes to update and graphics reminded me of good old ms dos days.

Dab now works after every startup of the car.

Yes I'm happy with my dealer. Always feel they are on my side, although this is the first Mazda I've had, that had any issues at all. Never made me feel I was being a pain.
Some interesting comments about how Mazda handle "warranty" issues, that I won't go into.
