SOURCE: 2002 Mazda Protege ABS & Brake light

It is most likely caused by one of the ABS wheel speed sensors, those little cylindrical nipples on the back of your rotors with the cable attached to them. One way to confirm it is to read out the OBD2 codes for the ABS system, but there are some checks you can do. Visually check all four cables and sensors , and make sure there is no build up on the sensors. Make sure that the connector they plug into has good connections. Look at the wheel speed sensor and make sure the gap between the sensor head and the sprocket is the same on all four wheels (should be no more than a mm). Disconnect the wheel speed sensor cable and use an ohm-meter to check the resistance of all four sensors (they should all be similar, but don't remember the value exactly). There is a way to just disable the ABS by pulling out the 60A fuse, but if you do that you may have to plug in a code reader and use a grounding jumper on the ABS electical access box (don't remember which pin) to reset the ABS faults, otherwise you won't be able to drive around like that because your engine rpm at high speeds will behave erratically. Also, do not drive around without fixing this problem or bypassing ABS completely because it could get you into an accident. My ABS problem was intermittent, and the ABS would sometimes kick in on completely dry pavement as soon as I touched the break pedal, it almost caused me to rear-end a car on couple of occasions.

SOURCE: Possibly battery-related problem with '02 Mazda Protege

It sounds like the car's security system is going off. Is there a key fob to lock/unlock doors and turn on alarm? If there is, connect battery, and immediately press alarm/unlock button to turn alarm off.
I have a truck with an aftermarket alarm system installed by the previous owner, my battery died, and when I hooked up a new one the alarm went off, and it took a while before I hit the key fob button, but it stopped it. Let me know if this works for u.

SOURCE: obd2 code p0300 on mazda protege 2002

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.

SOURCE: check engine, engine light on for mazda protege

most vehicles check light comes on when you have a bad oxygen censor or maybe because it is fuel injected, it has a dirty or faulty injector or something of that sort if you take it to an automotive place they will test it on a handheld computer for you and most of the time its free i know it is at an autozone! goodluck!

Mazda protege turn signal


Sounds like a short between the circuit for the 4-Ways and the multi-function switch (The lever that operates the turn signals). Have the system checked by a qualified mechanic.

2000 Protege: my 2000 mazda protege battery is fully charged but...


How old is your battery? If I am having problems with starting, and my battery is getting close to 5 years, I automatically change it, as I want to have reliable starts. This usually fixes the majority of my problems. If it doesn't, I take it to the shop and have the starter checked.

O/D off light flashing - 2002 Mazda Protege5


There is most likely nothing that they did to cause the problem.
Its just a coincidence.

I would take it back to have it checked out by them.

I have seen this problem on many Protege's, and it is usually a simple fix.
