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.

Ive been having the same issue and noticed that the wiring harness attached to the alternator was shorting out. Once I replaced the harness, it ran just fine.

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute with the 3.0 V6. The battery light will come on for a little bit then go off then flash on and off and then sometimes go for 100 miles with no light on at all. I went to a local...


14 amps under load isnt enough, plus the brushes in the alternator may be getting short, thats why the light is sometimes on. Ideally the alternator should be checked while the light is on.

What is the best for mazda tribute 2001? v6 2wd 3L


The best battery is the biggest one that you can fit in the battery box. There is no such thing as too much battery. The one that came in your car from the factory is the smallest one they could get to do the job. Certainly you should be in the 500 CCA (cold cranking amps) range, especially if you live in a cold climate. Hope this helps.

2002 Mazda Tribute V6 difficult to start.


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE IAC VALE OR IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE IS BAD, WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAP ON THE VALVE. IT IS LOCATED ON THE INTAKE RIGHT BEHIND THE THROTTLE BODY, JUST TAP ON THE SILVER PART WITH THE BACK OF A SCREW DRIVER A COUPLE OF TIMES. THIS SHOULD UNSTICK THE VALVE AND YOUR TRIBUTE SHOULD RUN. THEN IT IS JUST A MATTER OF REPLACING THE VALVE. YOU CAN GET THEM FROM ANY AUTO PARTS HOUSE.
