Question about Mazda 626
I drive a 1997 Mazda 626. I have replaced the battery twice and a relay. Additionally, for some reason when I step on the brake, my front lights come on (not the head lights-the small ones under the headlights) and the dashboard lights up too. However, when I turn on the dashboard lights, they barely light. Can someone please help me diagnose the problem? Thanks so much.

For the lights on the front and dash lights coming on when you push the brakes,check the brake light bulbs and wiring at the back.A defective bulb may be energizing the parking light circuit by transferring voltage from the brake light circuit.If you have trailer wiring this could be the source also.Do you have a sub in the car?They can shorten the life of alternators as they can use lots of power.Have you checked the voltage the alternator is producing and amps the vehicle is asking for when running?
