Stop before you take it to your dealer sounds like a bad alternator not keeping battery up have your alternator tested for 13.25 volts it should be higher
( 15-16 ) but as long as you have 13.25 you have a good unit save those bucks we will call them " a stimulus package " !

The calipers are overloading and not fully releasing the rotors. Have you changed the proportioning valve in the brake system? You may want to start there.

1998 Mazda B4000 (similar to Ford Ranger). Wipers, dome light and 4 wheel drive selector switch work intermitantly. I would like to know what is the problem and what parts should be replaced. Mike


With it being an intermittant problem that indicates a possible electrical short. It's not likely that any parts would need to be changed. I hope this is helpful.

Ok, you need to keep checking other related items. How is the charging system, tune-up history, vacuum lines, braking (vacuum booster), and the fuel system (how is the fuel line pressure and has there been any issues with water in the fuel)?

This sound like a loose conection at the batter or alternator. Check to make sure all the conections are tight and snapped in place securely.

1994 Mazda B4000 4WD V6. Check engine light on. Truck


if i remember right if the battery light and check engine light is on, your alternators may be bad. your battery may just have enough to keep it running for a minute or so. you can take it out and get it tested at a auto parts store. or try charging your battery for awhile and see if it stays on longer. if this is completely wrong let me know

Battery light on dash is on but car is still going - only got a new battery 4 months ago - car is still driving - Imported 01 Mazda Premacy


The battery light on your dash indicates a charging system failure, that would be the alternator and its wiring. If you are still driving the car and haven't needed a jump start in four months, you probably have a malfunction in the circuit that checks the charging system.
Check your voltage at the battery with the vehicle running and if it is between 13.5-15 volts i wouldn't worry to much about it.
