Question about Mazda RX8

Obd2 code p0562

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

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low

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.

SOURCE: 2002 mazda protege5 auto battery light coming on

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...

SOURCE: Toyota Camry 96. Won't start the engine turns over

Ignition timing could be off, the plug wires and firing order may be scrambled, there could be a large air leak into the intake manifold, the EGR could be stuck open, the fuel pressure is too high and flooding the engine through the cold start injector, the MAP or MAF sensor is faulty, very dirty fuel injectors, idle air control valve defective, the engine coolant temp sensor is faulty (stuck at full hot).

Mazda 6 2004 auto, hold light blinks and engine check light stays on

It could possibly be an emission problem or ur transmission. Most likely your transmission especially if theres a lot of miles. With a problem like this there is no specifics to truely point out what it is. I suggest taking it to a mechanic that can plug it into a computer and tell u the code of the problem and then go from there

fully charge battery and make sure everything switched off i.e rear window demist etc and take it for a run to get it up to tempature then park up rev engine at fast idle approx 2750 rpm for 180 seconds then take foot off throttle and allow to idle for 30 seconds this will clear your catalyst and get it up to the 600 degrees needed for it to operate properly this should remove the engine warning light

sounds like a problem with the ignitionkey comuting with body control module verifying that it is the right key for the car. if you have another key and see if it does the same. reprogramming of keys may help. Prados have been known to have a similar prob.

resources & the car is only worth that much

Car Won't Start - Engine No Completely Start. It is starts but stops immediately.

Hi there,

You haven't provided much information on Year or Engine model.

This condition could be caused by many things, ranging from fuel, air leak to sensor issues.

If your vehicle is 1996 (or newer), your vehicle's onboard diagnostic (OBD2) computer will have stored the fault codes relating to this condition.

Have an approved service agent check for codes (this only takes 15mins) which will quickly identify the suspected circuit/component.

The above process will save you unecessary expense.

My 2001 Ford Crown Victoria has had the check engine light on for a while, and the code came up as something to do with the fuel pump circuit. Now I've been seeing some sluggish acceleration and a kind...

Take it to a repair shop & then use the
computer to study OBD2 Systems & get
a cheap code reader

Look at a fuse,they do not fix anything
& hardy ever blow.

When you say check light has been on for awhile
Are you not aware of why the dash light come on?
They have been on all vehicles for 31 years now

Any dash light is a System Malfunction,& you need to
check for codes within a couple of days or stop using
the car,each & every time,unless you understand the
current OBD2 Systems & have at least a code reader
