Question about 2000 Mazda MPV
Is there a way to tap into it using a actron obd2 scanner. it wont start so cant drive it to mechanic to get diagnosed
The engine has to be running for the scanner to pull codes out of the car. By the way, the engine must be parked as well; if the car in drive (or driving along the street), it will not run the code. The connector should be below the steering column that mates with your Actron scanner.

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
