SOURCE: My Mazda5 "Check Engine" light is on. Fault code

FOR CODE P2106 (INTERNAL ENGINE OFF TIMER PERFORMANCE) THE FLOW CHART WILL LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE ITS THE PCM. THIS WILL PROBABLY NOT FIX IT. FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF NON FACTORY SPARK PLUGS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. IF THEY HAVE THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE CAUSE.THEY WILL PRODUCE INTERFERENCE THRU THE COIL WIRING AND CAUSE THE PCM TO THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM. SIMPLY PUT FACTORY PLUGS BACK IN ENGINE AND CLEAR CODES.PROBLEM SHOULD BE GONE.I HAVE BEEN THRU THIS. SID CODESPOTI (SERVICE MANAGER)STOKES MAZDA, CHARLESTON,SC

Losing power no fault showing up


Check your alternator and see if it is charging properly. With the ignition off, your battery should read approx 12 volts, with the engine running, approx. 14-15 volts. A real sign is if your internal dash lights are dimming while driving, same with the head lights. This does not normally trigger a fault code.

My dash lights and shift lights are not coming on


These problems are always frustrating. Some of the charades swicth directly via the stalk on the column, while others have interposing relays. A common problem with dimmed headlights, indicators and dash lamps on the charade is caused by the fuse box retaining screws becoming loose .... these screws are also the -ve path back to the battery via the chassis.

If you have a meter, check voltages between the fuses and various metal parts to see if you can suss out a poor continuity path. Check your chassis strap between the battery -ve and the body is clean and tight.

Dash Board ligths not working


What year is this vehicle? It might have an ambient light sensor that has failed if it's 90's+,but older it's most likely the dimmer switch. If it's early 80's you should be able to replace it w/o having to removed the dash,just small panel cover nearby.
