sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

Sad to say but your automatic transmission has bit the dust.

SOURCE: Transmission or Engagement issue?

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

SOURCE: WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE

Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

I have a 2004 Mazda 3. The car started revving on its own even while driving. Now the engine light and AT light is on. What does this mean?


This is not an uncommon problem on the Mazda 3 autos of various years and it is an automatic transmission related problem even though the check engine light comes on when the AT light displays.. The AT light is a warning that there is an issue with the auto transmission.

You will probably also find the auto transmission is not changing as it should or not going onto particular gears and the increases in engine RPM when driving is caused by a problem with the transmission.

The cause is primarily neglected maintenance of the transmission by owners .

If you stop the car and restart it you might find the warnings go away and the car starts behaving normally for a very short time. The problems will definitely come back and both warnings lights will come back and the auto trans will start playing up again.

If you do not address the problem the computer system could send the vehicle into limp mode or stop it altogether as a preventative measure to save the transmission from damage. You need to take the car to Mazda service and have them check it over with their diagnostic equipment. They have seen all this before with the transmissions in other Mazda 3s/. For this issue I would strongly recommend you don't take the car to some independent unless the business is a very competent specialist in Mazda vehicles.

2004 Mazda Protege Transmission Issues


Transmission speed sensor loss of signal will not allow torque converter lock up (no overdrive). Transmission filter should be serviced at 80,000 miles. Perform an OBDII scan for stored fault history. The scan should show any issues with trans. sensors or solenoids that can be addressed during trans. service. Let the ODBII scan be your guide to any repairs to avoid buying parts you don't need.
