Q: Mazda CX-5 2016 GT - Central display blank, music from radio/CD working. Would this hard reset help me as well?

asked by on February 25, 2017

I just bought a Mazda CX-5 2016 EU edition. In several days of yous my central display is blank, although everything else seems to be working. Would a hard reset help me? By hard reset I mean disconnecting the battery and turn the headlights on and holding the foot on the brake pedal for 1 minute.

Is there any other way to reset it?

My car has 200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
