Had several problems as this and needed a new computer because the chip controlling sensors that signal the fault lights to come on went bad. Depending on the year of the car some control chips are replaceable, others are integrated into the printed circuit board and are not replaceable.. Hope this helps

SOURCE: airbag light

This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.

SOURCE: car will not jump start

Check battery voltage. If volts are very low, put on charger. In many cases, you can't jump through a really dead battery... not enough voltage gets through to computer etc to make systems operate.
Battery may be used up... if it will not take a charge, replace it and check charging system before driving. PS: use a charger to charge battery. If it is very low, you candamage charging system in other vehicle. Also,,, You cleaned terminals already RIGHT???

When that light comes on, it is indicating charging system problem which could mean alternator not charging for one reason or another like loose belt, faulty alternator, or yes, bad battery or connection at battery, for example. First & easiest thing to do is check all your connections to battery, which you've probably done, and make sure they're tight & clean. Make sure belt driving alternator is good & tight, and in good shape. Now boost the vehicle to get it going & test voltage at battery, after you take cables off. My guess is in your case, the voltage will begin to go down, indicating a bad alternator, that will need to be replaced.

There is certainly a short somewhere. Most dealers will not take the time to find a short, they are in the business of selling parts. I would find a local mechanic that has a electrical specialist on staff to find the problem for you.

Its likely you are looking at several faults.
The airbag abs could be a wheel sensor is faulty or in need of service telling you to look at the brake system.
The starter could be a poor engine ground strap/cable.
The overheat could be nothing more than the fan belt is loose. But I suspect at 10 years old the rad could be blocked.
I'm afraid all this needs a good DIY mechanic who can work methodically without throwing parts at the fault unnecessarily. Careful examination before hand could lead to simple fixes.

All electrical started flashing then car died


The cars computer brain may be damaged now. Other than that, special code settings may be required to rest the computer brain. Never JUMP the battery using + and - posts, use the Plus + side and put the Minus - clamp on the struts, motor support mounts etc. But not on + and - posts.

Test alternator. With engine running, voltage at battery should be at least 14 volts. If not, remove alternator and have it tested at parts store. Low voltage could be setting all 3 lights. Let us know if you have more questions.

Hi, Same problem - with my Hyundai Getz. Thought I'd pummelled the horn too much. However, I'm told that it might be the alternator. Battery completely died and couldn't be charged - AA man cleaned around the alternator ready for new battery, which seemed to work - advised to get new alternator. Didn't! Battery died again few weeks later, but still some power so that I can jump start the car - all lights on! ABS, airbag, brake - you name it! Also, car is brakig itself when driving - this only occurs when all lights are on. Lights eventually go off, and car resumes back to normal driving again - no more bunny hoping a it brakes, and no more smell of rubber. Have read that low power can be a problem for airbag light, and so checking battery, and alternator is a must. My alternator is now being ordered. Hope this helps. If it was anything else let me know.
