Question about 2010 Mazda 5 1.8

Open Question

Car shuts off unexpectedly while driving.

About once a month, my Mazda 5 loses power while I am driving and shuts down. This happens regardless of the speed that I am going. Various icons on the dashboard light up and the key is in the "on" position in the ignition switch. I have to turn the ignition switch to off and restart the car. All of the icons on the dashboard turn off (meaning they are no longer lit). Mazda has been unable to offer a solution since their computer doesn't register anything wrong. Please help.

SOURCE: Flashing red light when I pull my keys out of the ignition

It is possible it may have had a keyless remote, and to find out get your VIN nimber and call a mazda dealership. If it did, and you want one they can probably order one for you. On the matter of the light flashing, that's normal. it's a security light, telling a car thief that without the origional key for the car, the computer won't allow the car to run.

SOURCE: 1998 mazda 626 check engine light flashing

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. A technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. When the light starts flashing the computer is telling you to have the vehicle looked at now before other problems happen.

SOURCE: key in mazda mpv stuck in ignition

If you remove the fuse for the flashers, the key will come out. I keep the fuse handy in case I need to use the flashers and I'll just plug it back in!

Car stalls when driving


Take notes , when this happens.
For instance : engine warm or cold , outside conditions (cold , hot) , car driven for a while , long or short distance when problem occures etc.... , that may help for diagnosis.
It very well may be temperature relaited , sience it has to sit (cool off) for 5 min.
Ignition coils sometime do that.
I'm mechanic shop owner and intermittent problems are the hardest one , so any piece of iformation on above mentioned events may give a clue.
Good luck.

Mazda 2004 Miata automotive battery, I only use car once a month, why does the battery go dead?


You may have a light that stays on of a very minor short. You have to put an amp meter on the battery cable and then start pulling fuses until it reads no draw.

It can be a real pain to troubleshoot. Or use a battery keeper to maintain charge when you are not using it.

Mazda MPV 2003 Turn Off On The Highway


I had a similar problme to this years ago on a VW that I was driving.

I took it into the the shop and they said that they couldn't find the problem either and couldn't get the car to do it when they tested it.

Then a few weeks later it happened to me again as I was out in the country and an old farmer stopped by to help.

He discovered that the wire leading to the alternator was too thin. It would over heat and then shut the car down. Once it cooled off, it would start up like nothing.

He got a larger piece of wire and and changed it for me right there on the spot. It took about 5 minutes and I was off and running.

I never had the problem again.

I don't know if this is the same thing that you have, but it's worth a look.

Good luck.
