98 Dodge Caravan keeps blowing the wiper fuse. Works for a few seconds then blows.


check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car

Check engine light and airbag light came on; now car will not start


I have run into this problem a few times where the dealer replacing the sensor and a month later light back on, take car back it may need a program update and sensor may be bad or crank sensor may need replacing.
I would have the code scanned at a local auto parts store and if the code is the cam then take it back to dealer to see what has happened.
The car i was working on had a cam sensor problem, replaced the sensor and light came back with same code. sent to dealer and dealer said after market part was bad, car needed an oem part, so they replaced it and in a few days same problem . took car back and this time they installed a program update and so far so good.

Check engine light on 2000 sienna went off when new battery was installed, then went back on


I forgot to mention. when you remove a battery, it resets the engine light, but the trouble part will cause it to come back on.

After you replace the trouble part, the auto parts places do not like to reset the light for you. You can either remove the battery connection for a few minutes to clear it after you fix it, or in many cases, just drive with the light on, and after a few hours/days/trips around the neighborhood, the system will see the part is now good, and it will reset on it's own.

You can buy a cheap ($50) basic OBD2 scan tool and follow the instructions on how to scan the computer yourself and also reset/clear the check engine light.

Engine warning light on Mazda MPV 2002


There seem to be 4 sensors along the way in the air intake and emissions system.

My Check Engine light indicated a bad sensor 1, bank 2 code (I think).

I had my mechanic replace the sensor that was indicated as faulty... cost = $191.

Then the Check Engine light came on again (with a different code), and I had to leave the van with him all day.

Cost to replace and install that sensor = $115.

My advice: if the Check Engine light stays on *AND* your vehicle is riding rough, get it fixed.

Otherwise, put a piece of tape over that Check Engine light and save a couple hundred dollars!

Hope this helps, I do trust my mechanic fully.

Mazda 6 '06 won't start


Well you are right, it does sound like it's just the battery. Since you can't get the car to stay running, take your battery to your local parts store and they will test the battery for free.
If it started like that but shut off right away it's probably cause the cells in the battery just can't hold the energy anymore.
If the battery tests bad get the new one and put it in, after that go back to the parts store and have them test your entire charging system, most parts stores do that free as well.

The check engine light comes on


leave car with them ( or reputable tech) to drive as you did when you did and replicate the problem....a good tech should find the code and its relation to vehicle speed/temp/gear selected..a/c on etc to close gap on issue....high speed codes often catalytic converter/O2 sensor/VSS ...or otehr related..does it run different when showing codes?
