Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
I have a 2002 mazda tribute, the battery light came on, so i bought a new one...the battery light is still on and now my new battery is dead and the car wont start only with a jump, but the battery dies soon after?
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.
