Question about 1989 Mazda 323

1 Answer

Warning lights coming on with nothing happening

The Heat icon and the Charge Icon are coming on in my 1991 Mazda Familia whenever I start it and stay on for the whole trip.

The heat isnt so much of a problem as the temperature only rises when I am travelling for a distance at high revs such as going up a hill.

It is mostly the alternator/Charge I am worried about.

I would like to know what to look at in the Engine to see whats wrong and what I can do to fix this.

Many Thanks in advance

Loosen the positive battery cable.... start the car.... remove the battery cable.... if it keeps running... it's your battery failing... if it dies... it's your alternator. wear safety googles when you perform this test and it should be done outside where it is well ventilated.

I suggest that you get the instructions manual, you will find what the icon indicates there... you can also visit a local dealership and have a few chat with the mechanic. I'm sure they will not charge you for a very basic question.

ABS SYSTEM of my car is always on


If the light is staying on, there is some problem with the system. the light comes on at startup as it soes a selftest. If it stays on, sounds like you will need a code reader to find out what the issue is. Try your local autoparts house. They often have a code reader and will help you diagnose the issue.
