Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

03 Tribute sat for 6 months

The 03 Tribute I have sat in a garage unused for 6 months and now, not even the remote entry works, so how do I get inside the car to open the hood and either jump start it or replace the battery? Is there a way to open the hood from the outside of the Tribute?

There was a opening for a key on the driver's door handle, so I got into the car that way. Ha, haven't tried to start it yet!

VW Polo wont start.know it has fuel and spark plugs are sparking.tries to start on first attempt but not after that. Mobile mechanic has run diagnostics found nothing that suggests it shouldn't start


Today's gasoline goes bad very quickly. If car sat unused for over three months, fuel may have gummed up pump or filter or even injectors. (Disregard if diesel) Try using small amount of spray starter fluid to see if it starts for a moment. If so, fuel system may require service.

Is it better to replace a timing belt by mileage on it or time


As a rule mileage is the better gauge, but if the vehicle has sat unused for months at a time, then It is best to change it. If the car sits for long times, the rubber dries out and becomes "molded" to the position it is sitting in, becoming brittle and prone to breaking.

Have verified that my newly purchased 03 kia sorento has remote keyless entry, but professional locksmith cannot get new remote to program. Remote is Bontec T009, pretty sure it is correct one. Could it be...


Yes the 03 and up sorento has a keyless remote entry, You do not need to reset the ECU, you however need to reprogram the remote trasmitter to your car so they communicate, otherwise it will never work if you do not program it. You will need to take this to a kia dealership with the remote transmitter. They may or may not charge you for a fee. However I did had a remote, and it became damaged when my kid drop it in the fish tank. I was able to get it done at the dealship, 35 for the remote, and 50 for service fee. I did however found some link referal to manually do it yourself, Please check this forum out http://www.kia-forums.com/2003-2010-sorento-forum/34549-remote-keyless-entry.html. For me, I did not bother, because I did not want to take the chance to mess up something else.
