Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
How to service power steering fluid
Checking the power steering fluid level at least once a month is a good idea, since as components in the high pressure system wear out, the possibility of leaks increases. Always stay alert for changes in steering wheel operation. If you suddenly find it hard to turn the wheel, check the steering fluid immediately.
Step 1:Apply the parking brake and place the transmission in "Park" (automatic) or "Neutral" (manual).
Step 2:Check the level of the steering fluid in the reservoir. If your car is equipped with a see-through plastic tank, compare the level with the markings on the side the container. Other systems are equipped with a dipstick inside a plastic tube, or have a dipstick mounted on the reservoir cap.
Step 3:Pull the dipstick or remove the reservoir cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean shop rag. Insert the dipstick or replace the cap and remove it again to check the fluid level.
Make sure the level is within the crosshatched area on the dipstick or at the "Full" mark. If necessary, add steering fluid.
Place a small funnel or a funnel with a flexible hose on the dipstick tube or reservoir opening to add fluid.
Hope this helped your troubles!

Most of the time this lite goes off based on mileage. usually oil change is very near or overdue. depending what year you hit gas 3 times and hold unti it goes away, after Key on engine off. engine cannot be running and wait for chime to stop. make sure doors are closed as well.
