SOURCE: TRIBUTE TURNS OFF

suprisingly it could be the TCC Solenoid on ur transmission. it could be locked in a gear and when u go to change the gear it stalls out. sooner or later the clutch in the auto transmission will let go and allow you to move. its a long shot. does this happen after a dead cold start or have u been running the car for a while?

You probably need to replace the cc cable. They go bad periodically.

Usually the oil warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, or the sending unit has failed.

Mazda tribute 2003 with 106,000 miles enging light flashing the car shakes when idlle and lwoers when driving


If the check engine light is flashing you should probably get it scanned to see which coil(S) need replacing. When the light flashes it means that something is seriously wrong. STOP driving. If you continue to drive it will melt your catalytic converters. I have had customers that get the misfire issues repaired and come back maybe a month or two later with burnt converters. Converters are not cheap either.

Oil light flickering when i brake


Of course it can be low of oil, but I assume you checked the oil level. It can be a bad oil pressure sending unit. Check the wiring at the oil pressure sensor and make sure it is connected tight and is not loose. If you see any oil leaking from the sensor replace it. If this started after an oil change remove the filter and install a Purolator, Wix, or Mazda filter. Then check the oil level after starting and running the engine for a couple of minutes. Top it off with the correct weight oil. If it is overfull of oil it can cause the pressure light to flicker. Make sure it is not overfull. If so, drain out any excess oil. Overfilling is just as bad as under filling. Also make sure you are using the correct weight oil which is more than likely 5w20. Check your owner's manual to be sure. I would suspect you will find the oil pressure sensor is the culprit.

Battery light flashes


Sounds like part of a wiring harness is shorting to ground or breaking a ground connection. Check engine to frame ground straps and engine compartment wiring. Look for loose or broken leads esp. alternator and battery wires. Perhaps the power lead to the computer is faulty causing the truck to misfire. Any engine codes?
