Hi!!
Check your brake fluid level, if low, fill to level, if OK, check the status of the brake pads, the may be worn out. On the back of the wheel rotor where the brake pads go, there is a device with an electrical plug, that's the VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor, make sure they are all connected and the wiring is not damaged. Repair as necessary.
If the lights are still on, have vehicle's computer scanned for Trouble Codes. AutoZone, Checkers among other auto parts stores, have this service available at to cost for their customers, you'll get a print out of the codes and their description.
The reason I suggest you do the code scanning at last, is that some times when the above mentioned items are not within specs. The computer can give you a code, that certain part failed, you replace the part and the problem still persists.
Keep me posted!!

Sound like an electrical wire that's faulty or the braking computer itself. The only way is to scan it and it more than likely one of your rear sensors.

This is most likely the problem. Any work there in the wheels could touch rear sensor, I suggtes take it apart again just to check the alignment of the sensor as well as cleaning it.

Keep us updated.

My 1998 Mazda protege is stuck in park? Help me fix please


the release is a solenoid that is powered by applying the brakes. do you have brake lights. that gives you an indication that the signal is being generated and that the solenoid is either bad or miss adjusted. this device is within the shifter console.

Either the parking brake switch is stuck or you need to add brake fluid to the master cylinder.

My mazda 2000 dashboard dont light up what is the problem?


Check the Instrument/Brake light fuse. If you also don't have brake lights, the problem should be the fuse. If your brake lights work, then it's probably the instrument light dimmer, adjust it.

Check engine light on; ABS/Parking Brake light on - 02' Protege 5


If you live in the US, you can take your car to an Auto Zone store and they will read off the diagnostic code that is causing the check engine lamp to come on. Once you have that then you can decide your next course of action.

Hope this is of some help.
