The illumination dimmer knob can adjust the illumination level of the dashboard and instrument panel lights. Turning the knob to the left will dim the light, while turning it to the right makes the light brighter.

Whenever the knob has been turned to the maximum dim position, it will beep to alert you. This is what some owners have reported as being a cause for the mysterious beeping coming from their Mazda. To fix it, simply turn the knob so that it is not at the very dimmest level.

    your car has a faulty parking sensor on the rear bumper. Your have to change the sensor and will be fixed this problem. Use an ODB scanner to find the faulty sensor
