AT light on 2004 Mazda 3i

The AT light on my dashboard goes on and off intermittently. When it is on, the car makes a very rough transition into reverse, and does nothing when i put it in "manual mode". I was told at a Mazda dealership that they do not know what the problem is, but they charged me 100 dollars and suggested i replace the solenoid valve for $1,200. What the ?!??

    Yeah, there is plenty of transmission fluid in the car. Anybody know anything about a shift solenoid?

The solenoid valve deals with emissions. ? strange. I'd say it may be an issue with the turbine speed sensor on the transmission. Does it have enough fluid?

Trying to find the back up light switch. the transmission is automatic. where is it


The neutral safety switch (also contains reverse lights) is mounted on the outside of the steering column behind the dashboard for column shift models. In this case it's a curved strip of plastic and metal with at least three wires attached; it goes roughly about 1/6 of the way around the steering column. Look inside the shift console if you have a floor console shifter.

Intermittent flashing of all dashboard lights


Weird,sounds like your battery connections are possibly loose, but
the car wouldn't start properly, or at all, if this was the case. You might just have a loose connection to the dashboard controls?
If you are up to the task, I'd remove the guage console,if you can,and make sure all the connections are tight. Good luck.

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


I recently purchased a 2002 S60 D5 which had this problem. I am not a Volvo expert so don't know if it could be the same fault, but it sounds identical. No lights, gauges etc, but intermittently and very briefly comes on. Having heard some silly prices for replacement dash and ECU, I had a look. I found 4 poor soldered joints on the dash circuit board (top left processor & heat sink). I cleaned them and re-soldered them, although I had continuity just after cleaning the corrosion. The dashboard has worked perfectly since (3 weeks) . If you try this make sure you disconnect the battery first or you may have the SRS airbag warning light on! (I had to have it re-set at the dealers!!)

The whole process took less than an hour. If you are not electronically savvi get one of your mates who is to have a look..

Electrical Problem and now won't start


One common problem is with intrument cluster solder joints where the cable connector attaches to the circuit board. Solder joints fracture. Resolder. Use Hanes manual to get dashboard apart.

Indication is instrument panel goes dead and car sometimes will not start.

Other possibilites are loose connectors or poor connections in cable harnesses.

Vehicle starts, howwever transmition does not shift.


as soon as you say that the battery goes flat it pins one thing at me
your alternator
most cars these days run from the alternator and not from the battery
this can stop warning light ans wipers etc
it also charges the battery while driving
however it dose not explain the transition not shifting into gear
change the alternator and let me know what happens
