Question about 1998 Mazda 626

Mazda 626 v6 rear lights wont turn on when car is in neutral

Brake lights work and blinkers work, but rear lights won't come on when driving. My license plate lights also do not work so the guy tried to replace them but they won't work either. Not sure if the two problems are connected or not.

SOURCE: My Mazda 626 Wont go into Drive

Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC

SOURCE: Cruise control problem

The cruise control is terminated by the brake lamp circuit, Check the brake, tail lamp for water or a short. Your turn signals are on a different circuit. Check the bulb sockets closely for corrosion. Failing this check connectors for the tail lights for possible water penetration, or loose connections.

Hope this ia of some help

2000 Mazda 626 brake lights (all 3) not working.


I know the answer to this. I just fixed my in laws 1999 626 with your exact problem. Power comes through the brake switch, and into what they call a "joint box". Basically this joint box is the back side of your fuse box where all the connectors go. Most likely you have a bad box, or connection at the box. It is the only other thing between your brake switch and rear brake lights.

98 Chevy Tahoe, drivers side rear tail light assembly wont work, brake / turn signal. Replaced entire assembly, it worked for about 3 days then stopped working again. I need to get this fixed before I get...


I've got the same problem on 98 GMC Sierra.

I'm an electrical engineer, I checked the electrical diagrams and verified that there is no problem in the rear lamp assembly or wiring. With the light assembly unplugged, I can actually watch the blinker and brake signals operate with a voltmeter. The Tail light works OK.

It simply won't provide enough current to light the bulbs.

I'm afraid that it's melted one of a pair of normally closed contacts inside the blinker switch that feed the brake and turn separately on each side.

95 mazda 626 automatic transmition....will not reverse


Check you transmission fluid level and if it's not your transmission, I'm thinking that your brake shoe lineing in the rear brakes may have separated and is jamming up aginst the drums when your trying to back up. Sorry can't halp you with any more, good luck and start with that and hope it help's.
