SOURCE: electricall problem w/2002 V6 mazda tribute

When that light comes on, it is indicating charging system problem which could mean alternator not charging for one reason or another like loose belt, faulty alternator, or yes, bad battery or connection at battery, for example. First & easiest thing to do is check all your connections to battery, which you've probably done, and make sure they're tight & clean. Make sure belt driving alternator is good & tight, and in good shape. Now boost the vehicle to get it going & test voltage at battery, after you take cables off. My guess is in your case, the voltage will begin to go down, indicating a bad alternator, that will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Gear shift is broken in a 2001 Mazda Tribute 3.0

Mine did the same thing on May 31. Turns out the cable that passes through the firewall from the steering column to the side of the transmission had come disconected at the transmission. I was able to re-connect it using a tie wrap for a temporary solution. Hope this helps.

My 2001 mazda tribute dies while driving. And blows the fuse to my radio. It will stay on as long as I press the gas pedal but come to a stop light it will die, it will die at a stop light even after...


Hi,this could be a lot of things,I would say to you to first service the car,you need to get these parts done first so you can liminate these from the problem,some times a service with a tune up sorts the problem out,if you cant afford to have it servised then try just changing the spark plugs and air filter,as if the filter is derty when comeing to a stop the fuel air mixture will be wrong so will stall,if spark plugs are worn then when the car comes to a stop the sparkplugs will get wet and stall,hope this was some help.

If this is idleing with the ac on then the idle up speed may require adjustment. not a good practice to leave any vehicle idling with ac on unless idle up control is set high enough to compensate for this practice. can be annoying to drive if set up too high

When slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies


Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?
