Question about 1994 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

ABS light flashes on dash

My ABS amber light indicator just came on the dash panel on my 1994 Mazda MPV 4WD. Brakes still seem to work ok. Just previous to this I was replacing a burntout dome light on front center when it seemed to short out and now all the internal dome lights are out. Can there be some relationship between the 2 events? Where is the fuse panel located and is there 1 fuse for all internal cabin lights?

    Same problem here; dome light shorted out and the ABS light started blinking on 1995 Mazda MPV. What is the problem and how to solve the problem?

As far as the dome lights and the fuse they run on or where they are located I do not know. I would say check under the driver instrument panel, or under the hood on the left side ( as you are looking at it). It is highly likely that the lights run on one circuit. Your anti lock brake light is another matter altogether. When that light comes on it is because the sensor beside the brake has indicated an irregularity with the brakes that could impact braking performance in the event of a sudden stop. Most brake shops do a free brake check so if you are a do it yourselfer then you can discover the problem with that option

possibly the indicator bulb on the dash - at the air bag - is blown - or the seat sensor has failed. best be prepared to pay 150 buchs and have the dealer screw you for the fix.

The amber ABS warning light is telling you that there is a problem with the ABS system. When the antilock brakes don't work you just have good old fashion non antilock brakes. When the red brake warning light is on it could be a couple of things. (unless you are talking about the brake light on the back of the car is stuck on) the red brake warning light on the dash tells you when the parking brake is on and it also tells you when there is a problem with the hydraulic system. Some cars will also turn this light on when the brake fluid is low, (not sure if the Cavalier does this)

The ABS system is computer controlled and needs to be scanned for trouble codes to diagnose the problem.

I can't say I have ever heard of a "brights" indicator flashing, Do the headlights go bright and dim as it is flashing? Is it a slow on and off like a turn signal or faster than that?

2001 mazda mpv van brake light stays on after changing brakes and bleeding system how do you get the light to go off


check the master cylinder. there is a float in the reservoir that when the level gets low, it turns on the brake light. or check the ebrake...also on ABS systems you have to actuate the ABS module with a scantool to get out all the air in the system.

Abs brake light


The Brakes may seem to work okey, but you have an
ABS Braking System light on- indicating a system fault,
just like any other check light you get

Do you not check for codes almost the same day any dash light
or check light comes on?

It will bite you some day-- if you ignore the reason they are there

Mazda yr 2000 Premacy. After parking car up for a few months both the brake and ABS warning lights are on. Car brakes seem to work OK


Your ABS control module has failed. It can fail in two areas.. either the fuse controlling it which is a large fuse and located in the engine cmpartment on most vehicles or the actual ABS actuator control module which is a computer driven box located on bottom of vehicle that pumps the brakes to make them antilock (think how in the 70s you were told to pump brakes, now the car pumps its own brakes) The computer module is what burns out leaving you without ABS but not brakes themselves. Your car indicates this by showing you an ABS error light and a brake light. You are not in danger by driving the vehicle you just will NOT have antilock brakes in the event of an accident and could slide if you lock the brakes by slamming them down. Check your owners manual for the fuse location in your vehicle and inspect it. If its burned out replace it and see if this fixes the problem This is a 3-7 dollar fuse. If that doesnt do the trick unfortunately the repair is very expensive 700+ dollars for a new control unit.

Brake Lights not working


You did not mention if you checked the fuse or not.

You may want to get a test light and see if you have power to the switch and if it is working properly.
