check the spark plug wires for dry rotting and check the order there in starting from the back of the motor left to right the order go's 1..2..3 and then the front left to right the order go's 4..5..6 also make sure that all the wires are plugged in the right order on the distributor also it could be your TCS or "TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM"

SOURCE: My 2001 Mazda tribute column

The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

SOURCE: How do I remove the radio from a 2003 Mazda tribute?

Definitely an easier way. Not familiar with your exact model but usually there are two side strips that are removable to reveal a couple of holes on each side. At the bottom of these holes are retaining clips that need to be disengaged to remove the unit. You can buy a removal tool that is a pair U shaped wires to poke in the holes and press outwards to release the clips. You can also make one out of coat hanger wire. It is a good idea to coat the face of the radio with tape to avoid any scratches. If your radio doesn't come out exactly like this the principle will be similar.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

Mazda Tribute won't start and has no electricity


This is a common problem with Mazda tribute and Ford escape. Replace the ignition switch. Actually, if you close the doors and turn everything off. Insert key and turn to on position, do not start, verify all dashboard lights come on. If they are, just press key in and jiggle around a bit, then try starting, u may have to do it a couple of times to start it. But, change the switch and possibly the key tumbler..do switch first and test. .then key tumbler if not successful. Both parts should cost less than $80..good luck.

P.S. you can replace the switch yourself, remove steering column 4 screws, switch has a yellow or white markings and is on the left of the column opposite the key side.

2008 Mazda tribute won't start easily and normally anymore. Sometimes only starts when I turn the key all the way very hard while putting pressure on it . It's like pressing the key inward whi


It sounds like it is a linkage issue between the lock cylinder and the ignition switch. The ignition switch is located on the steering column and there is usually a rod that connects the lock to the switch. These switches have some adjustment, so you should be able to loosen the bolts and move the switch up the column. Just remove the panels below the steering column and look for a bunch of wires plugged in towards the bottom of the steering column.

Car won't shift out of park


Can you unlock the steering wheel but not turn on the switch and try it?
The brake switch triggers a lock solenoid when the key is on.

Key goes into key slot with slight difficulty, will not turn. red blinking light in shape of car with key in picture. LIGHTS, windows, and door locks still work. Key will not budge. Help!!!


Many vehicles have some sort of safety interlock that prevents the car from being started or operated or put in gear - under certain conditions that could be dangerous. Ex. Steering wheel interlock, gear selector interlock, parking brake, regular brakes. Some vehicles even have a little finger lever near the igntion key which must be pressed before the key will release or can be turned. Look for these. Try to step on the brakes. If manual transmission, try to set the parking brake and take the car out of gear / put the shift lever in neutral. If automatic, make sure the car shift lever is in P for PARK. It must be something like that.

consult with your car's user manual - usually found in the glove box. It should tell you about these things.

Ignition ley got locked. ket wont turn


I have an 2002 Escape. I can think of three possible issues:
You're using the wrong key. Duh.
You have a bad ignition switch. Extremely unlikely.
Your steering wheel is pushing against the steering lock. I just went out to my Escape to confirm this on mine. This happens sometimes if you park against a curb, or parking block. The steering wheel is pushed against the lock pin, and the key can not be turned.
Trying turning the sterring wheel back and forth. There should be some play or shake. If no play, turn the steering wheel a little harder in either direction until it moves a little, hold it, and try the key.

For the disbelievers, this can happen on most cars. Go to your car and hold some pressure on turning the steering wheel. Try turning your key from off to start.
