2003 Mazda protege5 dashboard light/rear lights stopped working

I just bought a used 2003 Mazda protege5 last week. I had a mechanic go through everything and he said the car was sound. A few days ago i replaced the stereo with a new one. Yesterday, my dashboard lights went out, although the light to tell me if i am in park, drive, reverse, etc.. still works. Also my tail lights don't work either. They work when I put the breaks on but not at night. My front lights work fine. Please help!

My 2003 Mazda protege5 hatchback started shaking at a low speed. Also the engine light keeps flashing. What could this be? Can anyone help?

Engine light usually flashes because you have a miss fire in one or more of the cylinders. Change spark plugs and only use what came from factory( platium, double platium etc.... NGK) This can also destroy your cat. converter.

I have a 2003 Mazda Protege5. When I turn my lights on the transmission shifts to 3rd gear, D and R both light up, and my reverse lights come on. Any Ideas of where to start?

Yikes! Sounds like an electrical short from the lighting system to the transmission controls. I would see a mechanic about it. Shorts can be non-trivial to trace out and repair. Sorry I can't suggest something easy and less expensive.

Car won't start just clicks. 2002 Mazda Protege5

The check eng light and the click are separate issue. The click is caused by a burned contact pad in the starter solenoid, the starter solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor on the engine. As for the other problem replace the O2 sensor, the heater is defective that preheats it when the engine is first started.

2002 mazda protege5 auto battery light coming on

I'm guessing that you've tested the actual current output of the alternator then. I'm assuming that the output is between 13-14Volts at the battery when the car is running... If it's too low, then it's not charging your battery at all, too high, and it's frying your battery.... Another thing that can cause this is if you have a short in your electrical system.. that, however, will be difficult to narrow down...
