Question about 2001 Mazda B-Series

Open Question

2001 Mazda B3000 electrical momentarily lost on acceleration

On about 4 different occasions, after cranking the truck, when I back out of my driveway, and begin to accelerate down the street, all the electrical goes dead for a second - The headlights go off, the stereo stops, everything. The electrical immediately comes back on, but of course the motor has died. If I stop, put it in park, and crank it again, everything is fine. This happens very rarely, about 4 times in 3 months. This past week, I have noticed occasionally the ABS light will momentarily come on, and then immediately go out. I don't know if the ABS light is related, I am guessing it is. Does anyone have any ideas about what is happening? Thanks in advance for any information.

SOURCE: Electrical problem

stop before you take it to your dealer sounds like a bad alternator not keeping battery up have your alternator tested for 13.25 volts it should be higher
( 15-16 ) but as long as you have 13.25 you have a good unit save those bucks we will call them " a stimulus package " !

2004 mazda b3000 instruments dont work and than on occasion peg

bad connection of the back of the instrument gage cluster. You need to remove the cluster and resolder each connection for the connector on the circuit board. Don't need solder.. just heat them up with a 25 watt soldering pencil until each one melts and then put it back in.

Truck making noise after replacing water pump, think i may have put belt back on wrong

I have a very loud squealing noise in my 2003 mazda mvp engine when i accelerate. We removed the belts which would eliminate belts as the problem. And that's that it. If anyone has any info please let me know.
Thank you

2001 B3000 Mazda truck vibrating when idling and accelerating but not when accelerator is released. Rotten egg smell when problem began, but seemed to fade when heater turned off. No smoke or odor under...

have you had the catalytic converter checked at the local exhaust shop? try that first. is the truck a 4wd? time to start checking the ujoints. do a compression check on all cylinders and see if there is a major drop in that hole that is misfiring. let me know what you come up with.
