Many people have been annoyed by the fake engine sound of the MX30. It so happens, a German fellow found a way to shut it off.

For those who do not understand German, this is how you do it.

1) Switch on the car by pressing the start button twice
2) Make sure you are still in Park
3) Press the brake and drive paddle simultaneously
4) Press five times the right flipper
5) Press five times the left flipper
6) Release the drive and break paddles
7) Shift to drive and go

With me it worked on the third attempt. To be honest, sound wise the difference is not very large because now you will not hear the fake sound but instead you will hear road noise and sometimes some wind noise as well. But I decided to keep it in this mode. I like this better.

Good Luck!

Hi Bert,

I'm about to take delivery of my MX-30 and I think I will eventually disable that fake engine noise. I'm curious to know if one can re-enable it following the same procedure though, in case I ever want to go back to that fake sound.
I also don't understand why Mazda does not make this as easy as checking/unchecking a box in a system menu, go figure ¯\(ツ)

Hi, I did not try to switch back to fake noise, but I imagine it must be the same procedure, or perhaps in reverse. But agreed, this should be a simple menu option.

Hello,

the process is completely reversible. Just do the same actions again. Keep in mind that, at least in my case, the possibility to switch off the sound has been accomplished by the recall action AM001A .

Ben benieuwd of dit werkt. Hebben onze mx30 gisteren gekocht, we moeten nog even geduld hebben voor hij afgeleverd word.
Vind het geluid niet storend, maar helemaal stil is nog fijner denk ik.

Worked on the first try. Thanks for this! Although the engine sound is subtle, I do like it better without.

Did the proposed change yesterday.
Succesfully in one attempt.

Mind that while doing no. 1: Do NOT depress the brake pedal!
You should check being in Park before you start this change.
After depressing both brake and accelerator pedals you quickly start no. 4 and immediately perform no 5.
Pressing no. 4 and 5 have to be done in a rapidly way.

By The Way:
IMHO Tips or Tricks ought to be a separate forum page!
There might be more to figure out about strange or irritating settings.

I myself met two irritating settings that I like to change:
1. The message and sound telling the driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel.
I get this message often - with hands on the wheel - driving long, straight country roads for no reason at all.

2. The message and sound telling the driver to brake (the car slows down by itself), when there is a curve in the road to the left, with cars parked directly next to the road.

Not yet found a solution to kill these awkward and irritating messages for ever.
