SOURCE: Mazda Tribute Intermittent Starting problem

I can think of 2 possibles,it could be a bad battery cable or an intermitent short in the starter solenoid, check or have the battery cables and there connections on both ends first not only are they a cheaper fix but the problem you describe sounds like a current flow issue.Test them with or have them tested with an ohmmeter they should show o ohms resistance,and while not attributed to the problem I do not reccomend using Bosch spark plugs of any variety,the best plugs for any Japanese vehicle are NGK's,this comes from my personal experience with them and other techs that I have worked with.

There's most likely an issue with your transmission. Bring it to a shop to have it scanned for any codes

SOURCE: I have a 94 Mazda MX-6 2.5 DOHC I was driving on

The timing belt has broken. Fortunately though, according to my catalog, this is not an interference engine and the engine should not be damaged internally.

My security indidcator light is flashing every 2 seconds when my car is shut off. It stops flashing once I turn the vehicle on. How can I get it to stop flashing when the vehicle is off?


Hi,
The security flashing is an indicator that your security system is armed and working.
It helps deter thiefs when they see the flashing light. They know if they try and break in your car the alarms will go off.
It is a good thing the red light is flashing.
Hope this helps ease your mind.

HOLD LIGHT FLASHES & TRANSMISSION DOES NOT ENGAGE


Hi there,

The bad news: your vehicle's computer has detected an internal fault in your transmission.

The good news: your computer may be flashing a fault code 'sequence' through the 'hold' light. Observe the code sequence to determine how many long flashes and short flashes occur - long flashes represent the 1st number, short flashes represend the 2nd number (e.g. 3 x long flashes - pause - 2 x short flashes, denotes code # 32).

If you are able to report back with a code of any sort, I may be able to advise the likely fault.

Cheers,

What does it mean when the word "HOLD" appears blinking on my dashbord, I believe it has to do with the gears


Yes the HOLD light comes on when the computer detects a malfunction with the transmission....one quick flash of the hold light means a 01 code. six quick flashes would mean a 06 code. 5 long flashes would indicate a 50...6 long flashes would indicate a 60 code. Hope this helps.
