I have my last service coming up and the Ute is out of warranty, hopefully one of you guys will be able to tell me what this noise is.
Its only on start up and it would do it every now and then but now every time i start it, it makes a chirping sound and goes for a few minutes before...
In mine after about 4 tanks of e85 mine starts like it's got a flat batery, put 98 back in and fires instantly, I believe pirate says it can fixed with a tune.
Edit- just reading above might give caltex stuff a go and see if I have the same problem
This is the one I got
Wifi ELM327 Wireless Obdii Auto Scanner Adapter Scan Tool Fits Iphone Ipad BY | eBay
I have a V8 but I'm sure it will work on yours as I have used it to clear faults on my VZ work wagon with out a problem.
Yep.... When I have put in 3 tanks of e85 in a row I have trouble starting, it starts like it's got a flat battery actually thought it was the battery filed it up with PULP and back to starting fine, I have replicated the problem a few times.
My MY12 Thunder has the small holed tweeters and also the traction control light displays on the cluster and when TC is off it puts the orange symbol on the cluster as well, so maybe some of these changes started before the Z MY 12.5 series ?
You can get a aerial from Mazda its for a cx7 or similar it costs $22 its shorter than a stock one and works 100 times better , i can now pick up Brisbane radio on goldcost and vice versa

There is you need the wifi one, the one linked above has a wifi version, that's the one you need.
Also the CD that comes with it has a few cracked versions of various software but be aware mine was riddled with virus and malware
I use the wifi OBD Elm with dash command and it works great a...
Looks great mate :) congrats on the new purchase
One thing though I would never park it in a car space with anyone either side of me, I would be out on the road with no one near me, the missus gets the shits big time with my parking :P
Interesting my S2 E85 compatible Ute did the same thing, have been using E85 maybe 1 tank in 5, but in the last couple of months have been using E85 and on about the forth tank it was getting rarely hard to start like it had a flat battery, ran 3 tanks of 98 through it and it starts instantly...
Only difference is ssv has full leather seats thunder has leather bolsters
Ssv has projector headlights thunder doesn't
I think the ssv has a better stereo or maybe just a subwoofer thunder has no sub
I think that's about it, they both have sat nav thunder has different wheels
My last years return took nearly two months, this years was done in five days and they were just simple ones I done myself.
You may just be in a back log or they may be looking over your return with a 5.5k return that could be the case, I know of people who have had to wait for health...
Thought i would give Plasti-Dip a bit of a whirl yesterday :)
Started with masking and then gave each badge 4 coats, only gave the SS badge on back Two coats am going to have to re-do that one.
Things I would do differently next time, maybe use a bit more masking tape or news paper as...
The OP has said he wants to use it with his iPhone Bluetooth will not work with a iPhone I have tried with a ELM327 Bluetooth, if its jailbroken you might get it working but I doubt it, wifi is the only one that will work with iphone
Just to update had it looked at took it to for a drive with the Technician cold start and the knock was acknowledged and seems to be cold fuel knock or something it doesn't do it on E85 for some reason so am going to try different fuel and see if that makes a difference.
As for the smoking...
On the first page if you scroll right down through all the bullshit there is a picture of what you get and it is a ELM327 OBD Dongle with their software lol
a quote from the page However — TOAD can not download/upload the ECU data from/to the car. For that you'll need a separate Tuner kit below...
Your not alone mate mine does the same thing, had it investigated at first service said they tweaked the seal of course when I drove it home the noise was still there.
I do like to drive in silence sometimes no music and just listen to the engine and I must say it does piss me off.
Maybe Im not sure what oil they have put in there but its had a few oil changes since I got it.
Changed at 3000K service, had it changed at 7500K and the 9 month 15000K service was done a couple of weeks ago 9500K on clock.
Note when I had the oil changes at 7500K at my expense on getting home...
I have a MY12 SS thunder ute 9000ks on the clock.
For a little while now i have been smelling oil inside the cabin when sitting at lights, didn't think much of it as it was just serviced and maybe a bit of oil splashed on the exhaust manifold, its had plenty of time to burn off but...
