I need to know what a yellow (!) followed by three low beeps.
I started my 2004 Mazda RX8 with no trouble what so ever but a minute later a yellow light that looked like (!) with a sqiggly underneath came on followed by three low beeps I have no Idea what they mean this has never happened before and I don't have an owners manual....HELP! PLEASE!
Re: I need to know what a yellow (!) followed by three...
Bell d is right, its youre tire pressure monitoring system. its a rim mounted tpms that calculates the psi in your tires. if they are low light will come on and beep. so its not a good idea to get aftermarket rims unless you want to pay for the tpms for each tire and have them professionally installed.

The rx8 has the rotary ankles engine in it, these have porcelain tipped rotors instead of pistols and are prone to wear resulting in them not starting. The car should start with a bump or toe start. This will require an engine strip down and rebuild and should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. (Mazda recommend rotors be replaced every 25000 miles)
You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.
Check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine.If not replace the pump relay.Then change the pump if still not working.Check for spark at the wires if you have no spark then change the crank sansor.If still no spark then change the coil pack.
hopefully you didnt use too much starting fluid. you dont want youre rx8 to be a crack baby. but as ardyrr said it is common for plug fouling and packs going bad. check packs for discoloration on the back side. if present, replace packs. if plugs are fouled replace them too. wires are probably damaged too or next in line to go. and when replacing parts please use oem or performance parts. cheap aftermarket parts will only cause more problems in the near future.
