I'm not a Mazda expert but I do no enough about cars that a fuse of any type can be replaced Mazda just wants your money. (Fuse can not be replaced but they say fuse block needs to be replaced) ????????????Don't make any since...Second opinion I would say.I personally try to vere away from dealers as much as possible unless it's a recall Just friendly Advise.

There is a trailer wiring jack at the back bumper of my 2006 Mazda Tribute but there is no power to any of the pins. How do I fix this so that my trailer lighting works?

The 2006 Mazda Tribute w/o factory tow package can't accept a trailer wiring harness. If you install one you will probably burn out the central computer as I did. I had a top notch trailer hitch instaler try three different brand harnesses. I feel Mazda should reimburse me the cost of this car new, as I bought it to tow and was told that it could tow 3500 lbs. False representation!

No it's not going to be that bad, that's the reason for fuses, check your fuses, with key on and head lights on, used a test light, replace bad fuses, should take care of your problem.

Electrical fault


Does your mazda have a central locking unit in the boot? If so then follow the wiring if you can to the fuse block and see where the wiring goes into and check the problem their? If that does not solve the then check the central locking unit in the boot and the ECU unit behind the fuse box.

Hope this will help you
