Question about 1997 Mazda Protege
Use Google & TYPE: OBD & your code
Keep in mind that while codes have names related to vehicle
systems & the sensors themselves,the codes do not mean you
change parts,mainly the sensors
About 70% of the time, a sensor will have failed & needs to be replaced
First you get the codes
Then google them to find out what SYSTEM has a FAULT
Then you have to learn about the sensor,how it works & how
to test it
That is called component testing
You only replace parts that fail a test,so you need a volt meter,
usually a professional scan tool & other test equipment, to work
on vehicles & 50% of the time, a wiring diagram
If the sensors are good,then you have to check/test the wiring
If that is good, then you have mechanical problems that are more serious
Most all sensors get their signals from moving mechanical parts
You can as you do,have several codes & some are not explainable
or related to the main vehicle driveabiltiy issue
