Question about Mazda B-Series Truck
It certainly sounds like an alternator problem.The alternator no longer has the ability to produce enough power to charge the battery and run the electrics in the vehicle so the battery is being drained .Change the alternator and the electrical problem will go away.As to the oil sensor it may also need replacing unless the wire to the sensor has fallen off or earthed out on the body.If you have a multi meter you can personaly check both components.The alternator should produce 13v to14.5v .Not sure what range the oil sensor in your vehicle runs at but you should get and test in ohms resistance.Usualy you will get no signal at all if it requires replacement.good luck and let me know how you go.
