Question about Mazda Protege

1 Answer

1999 Mazda Protege - Over the last week or so the "emergency brake applied" light has been going on and off intermittantly. Yesterday, when I started up the car there was a plastic burning smell but the car seemed to run fine. The smell was back this morning when I was driving to work. Part way to work the radio cut out and the "air bag" light started to flash. Then, when traffic slowed to a stop, and I stopped and then tried to start moving again, the car had lost electrical power and shut off and there was no battery power to restart the car. We pushed it to the side of the road and got a boost, and after that the car seemed to work fine, although the funny smell persisted. We checked the battery terminals and ensured that the battery is connected properly (i.e. no loose connection). Any thoughts?

I had a similar problem once. I would take it to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts and get them to scan it for codes, they will usually do it for free. It could be the speed sensor, at least that was the problem for me. Hope this helps.

My 1998 Mazda protege is stuck in park? Help me fix please


the release is a solenoid that is powered by applying the brakes. do you have brake lights. that gives you an indication that the signal is being generated and that the solenoid is either bad or miss adjusted. this device is within the shifter console.

My 2003 Mazda Protege won't start. Then "check engine" light came on last week. Where do I find the place on the car that I find the codes for the light? And when I find that gizmo, how do I...


You need to have an OBII faucet scan done with a scanner. Any good shop or parts store can do it for you (usually free). If you want to do it yourself scanners run about $60 and up. connector is under dash below steering column.

They may stay on if your headlights stay on. Try turning your headlights off and see if the break light goes off.

Madza protege 1998 front brakes making grinding noise when brakes applied , changed brake pads last week


You would need to apply some adhesive to the back of the brake pads.
This is common practice regarding disc brakes.
Quite a few brands are sold in most autoparts stores, and you should ask the clerk to show you some disc-brake noise reduction adhesives.
Once you get one of these adhesives, jack up the car again, and remove those pads. Follow direction as written on the adhesive's package.
