10 blinks is a faulty diagnostic module. If available at the dealer it will be hundreds of dollars. You do see these at salvage yards and on eBay but remember you're purchasing the same 25 year old part that you had failed so make sure you can return the item if it doesn't work. Airbag Blink Codes

SOURCE: Location O2 sensor after cat for Mazda Miata 2002

Just had BOTH of my O2 sensors replaced in my 2002 Miata.  The sensors are located
1. at the back of the engine compartment look down (on the passenger side ) You should see a spark plug looking device near the bottom of the engine (on the side) it has a short wire output that goes to a connector looking device on the other end. This O2 sensor had a short wire connector on the other end
Probably can be replaced from the top.
2.  This one is tougher --- From underneath the vehicle just after the catalytic converter  you should be able to see the Spark plug like O2 sensor .  The person who repaired it for me had to trace the wire from the O2 sensor.  It goes up into ( perhaps the frame or bottom of the vehicle INTO the Driver compartment under the drivers seat.  It is located near the Center Console  right at the carpet seam. It was about in a straight line from the BACK of the Drivers side Car Door.  He felt around -- and located the Connector (under the carpet near the center console. .  He checked underneath the car to the point where the wire disappeared --to confirm he had the correct wire.  
Once he located where the sensor wire led to --He had the old sensor out and wire connector disconnected and a  New sensor and the connector installed in about 10 minutes.  
The O2 sensor for this one was much longer than the first O2 sensor in the engine compartment He had to use some sort of standard release spray on the old sensor itself --to remove the old O2 Sensor.   Since it is exposed to the elements under the car.   Wrench, I think a screwdriver  and the spray were all the tools I remember him using.....

The autozone code indicated only the engine compartment sensor was bad.
The repair man told me Both usually go bad at the same time.  
I fixed the first one only -- turned out the warning light lit up a day or so later indicating the second O2 Sensor under the vehicle was bad.  Fixed that as well -- have had no problems since -- repair was about 4 months ago.....

I have a 93 mazda mx6 ls my air bag light keeps flashing is there any way to make it stop with out removing the bulb????


Easiest solution would be to pull the fuse, but if you do that your air bags won't be in working order. A flashing light is usually a sign that a relay is out in that system and it isn't working anyway. Your fuse panel will show you which fuse it is.

How can I stop airbag warning light flashing continuously on my Nissan Tiida


Try this:
5. If “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates as [as I said before], turn ignition switch “OFF” to reset from Diagnosis mode
1. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
2. After “AIR BAG” warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, [i.e. when it stops running solid and starts flashing] turn ignition switch “OFF” within 1 second. [DO NOT SWITCH IT TO LOCK, SWITCH IT TO ACC]
3. Wait more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 two times. (Perform 3 times in total.)
5. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
SRS is now in Diagnosis mode.
Try it a few times. If you can't get it to work, have someone else try. If you STILL can't get it to work, check your battery voltage. It might be low.
In diagnosis mode, you're going to hope the light flashes slowly. 2 seconds off, 3 seconds on, and repeats. If your light does this, this means that the computer detected a previous error that hasn't been erased. This is good.
to User mode and to erase the memory of the malfunction.
6. Turn ignition switch “ON”. “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates in
User mode. [it should stay on for 7 seconds, then go off, like normal.]

91 miata mx-5 cuts out at 2200 rpms- cant smog- check eng. lite isn't on


The very first thing to do is replace the ignition wires. These were a very common problem on Miatas. Since you're taking them off, it would be a good idea to change the plugs as well. These things are really just maintenance, but one other thing to check is the condition of the intake hose. It is critical that the hose that runs between the throttle body and the airflow meter has no cracks or flaws. Sometimes they are hard to see because the hose has creases in it. It's a good idea to take the hose off and inspect it carefully. If it is broken in anyway, the airflow meter won't know how much air is entering the engine and fuel will be cut off.

Flashing airbag warning light


Ken,
This is a common problem. I have a similar issue with my 92 Miata. I currently have a 10 code problem with my airbag.

Sounds like petrol starvation - the pump may be in need of replacement.
