Hello Jason, I would say it does not have enough oil pressure or maybe the oil sender unit is bad. Did you check the oil level?

    yeah I check the oil level and I added half a quart just to be sure it was a tiny bit low, it only comes on when it idles or when I slow down while I'm driving and it doesn't come on and stay on it just flickers

    Hello againJason, I suggest you install an auxiliary pressure gauge to see what the oil pressure is at idle. If it is 15 psi or better, I would install a new oil sender unit.

Its the Blower Resistor....If it was the switch, it probably wouldn't work at all....But the Resistor will give you those symptoms, of working on high med or low

SOURCE: 2001 Mazda Tribute No transmission-- it will

The plastic rod ends on the cable assy that goes between the shft lever in the colum and the transmittion are worn. I change the cable for the same reason last week and that fixed the problem.
The cable part number is MZEC01-46-500E the price from the Mazda dealer was US $ 64.98. Is easy to change all you need is aphillips screw driver & pliers

SOURCE: 2001 mazda tribute battery light comes on and goes

Probably a loose wire on the battery terminals. Otherwise corrosion on the battery terminals or your alternator is starting to go bad.,
