Hi, As my car lost power steering and sent to my local Mazda dealer to check it up. They said my car has been encountered a serious acceident before and cause the computer (or ECU) of the electronic power steering pump, the ABS computer (or ECU), or may be the whole computer system (or ECU) of the car show error code and might need to change. But my car just lost the power steering and I found no diagnosis on braking and no warning light on dash board is lit. Please help me as Mazda dealer said if to change all. I need to pay USD6500 - 9000. If I really need to change all, can you help me and tell me where I can find for re-conditioned computer(ECU) and they can send to Hong Kong freight collect. Thanks a lot of your help.

I would suggest that you just go to ebay and buy one for $139. They are not hard to change yourself. Just be sure to unhook your battery when you change it. If you don't you will ruin the new one. I don't have any idea why they were trying to charge you so much. But the ECU can cause lots of problems. I would suggest taking your car to Autozone and they will run diagnostics on it for free.

    I tried to copy and paste the link, but it looked like it went off of the page. Just go to EBAY and type in 2004 Mazda 3 ECU and it comes up with several of them.

I lost my keys to my 1990 Mazda Miata. Can you tell me how to replace them?


Hi:
The first thing to try is to go to your local Mazda dealer service department, and usually they can make a key for you off of your VIN number. Call to see what they need from you to do that, such as registration or other paperwork.
My wife locked her purse in our car with the engine running, when we were out of town, and the local dealer helped us out in about an hour!

If they can't help you, then you are at the mercy of a locksmith.

You either lost your belt, or the oil is gone from a broken hose.
