Doesd the fan work when the aircon is turned on?If not then the fan needs to be changed as it comes as a whole assembly including the resistor. All you have to do is jack the car up,place chasis stands, unplug the fan wires from the bottom,push the whole frame on which the fan is mounted on and it should just pop out. There is a ceremic resistor on the fan assembly that tends to go brittle over a time.The whole assembly from ford was $120aud.(about 2mnths ago)
Look near the driver's area under the dash for a an OBD-II port and borrow a scan tool from Autozone (they do tool rentals, cheaper than buying one). Pulling the codes will give you an idea of what is going on, you can then work from there.
Buy a new pair of headlights from a French Motor Factor or from your nearest Mazda dealer and just swap them over. Then go to a garage to get the headlight beams correctly adjusted. Voila!
If you want specific instructions, then you'll need diagrams which are not available online for copyright reasons, but Haynes publish the correct manual which you can either buy new or get secondhand from online suppliers like ebay and Amazon.
Only way to know whats going on is to have the engine light checked with a OBD II diagnostic tool, there's a data link connector under the drivers side dash that it plugs into, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will check the engine light with a tester at no cost, for example auto zone, or you could take it back to the mechanic to see if he can diagnose the problem. The service engine light come's on when the pcm (powertrain control module) senses a problem. good luck !
Martin, You should replace your fan motor. One fan is for ac and one is for normal driving without ac. Your car is getting to hot. Hope this helps, these fans are available aftermarket as a whole assembly. Check out ebay I have seen them on there I have a wholesale company I buy them through.
Is there a separate control module for the fan or is it inbuilt in the fan assembly itself? Check the power to the fan, if there is power there then consider trying a new fan if not check fuse before trying to locate fan control module.
