Question about 1999 Mazda 626

1 Answer

1999 Mazda 626 antenna won't go down, hums.

The antenna suddenly stopped going down when the car is shut off. Now it hums for 30 seconds and stops. Is there a way to disconnect the power until we decide to replace or repair the antenna?

Spray the antenna with a spray lubricant (WD40) or similar. and let it sit for an hour.

Then start the car and see what happens.

The antenna is probably full of filth or corrosion..

If that doesn't work take the side cover off the trunk on the side where the antenna is and you will find a plug in electrical connector near the motor that winds the antenna up and down, pull that plug out and the antenna will stop trying to wind itself down..

2000 MAZDA 626 LX 2.0 tries to die at lights or stop signs. Runs fine otherwise.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

2000 mazda 626 4 cyl a/c problem - unit runs for 15- 20 min then compressor shuts down. If you shut car down for 20 - 30 min a/c function will resume

Might be time to get some r134a freon added. When the car sit's it will build up pressure and when the pump kicks on it looses the pressure and goes into safety mode to not burn up the pump. If you do it yourself get the dye and pag oil also with the freon. It is very tricky to do it yourself so follow instructions carefully. Then check with UV light to see if it's leaking.

1999 Mazda 626 squeals

It sounds like a the tensioner is going bad or your water pump bushing is at it's end. A backyard way to check is to remove your belts and rotate all the accesory pulleys by hand and feel for roughness. Try to move the pulley laterally to feel for play in the sideways motion. If there is any of the above, you have found your problem.

Electrical Problem

Oh Daphne! Bella needs some care... first check the fuse related to radio,it usually protect radio and antenna motor.The trip odo problem can be located inside the dash so you have to emove it and check the macanism that runs the odometer.About the doors lights look down at the door stricker area and you'll find a push-in switch,it is pushed by the door each time you closed,check if any of those is damage and letting the lites on.hope you solve all Daphne,Buena suerte!
