Question about Mazda RX8
Hi, Please can anyone help me? I've got a Mazda RX8 2004 231ps manual . I've stopped the car for about 5 to 6 weeks and it got flooded. I've manage to start the car but now the warning engine light is on and sometimes the coolant light comes on as well. Also I feel the car loosing power. I've done the diagnostic and it comes up with code P0562 which is System voltage low. I've cleaned the spark plugs, I've tested the battery, even known the battery light never came on,and I've tested the alternator as well but everything seems fine. Does anyone knows what else could it be? Many Thanks Bruno

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

I'm guessing that you've tested the actual current output of the alternator then. I'm assuming that the output is between 13-14Volts at the battery when the car is running... If it's too low, then it's not charging your battery at all, too high, and it's frying your battery.... Another thing that can cause this is if you have a short in your electrical system.. that, however, will be difficult to narrow down...

this is a coolant performance code. Usuallly sets this code if the connector was left unhooked to the coolant sensor or the thremostat is stuck open. By any chance do you have a gauge that seems to be on the cold side ??

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
