Actually the knock sensor has nothing to do with the idler
but yes you are right the code # 5 means knock sensor problem
most of times knock sensor is located on either side of engine block but if you don't know how it looks like just buy a new sensor and compair it with the one on your car, if you are planing to instal new sensor is ok but if codes keeps coming on then it migh be the circuit from sensor to computer or the computer it self, but again i don't belive it has nothing to do with idle problem. hope and this help

Is there a jump start connection under the hood?

Yes. On the passenger side of the engine bay there is a black rubber grommet in front of the flat panel attached to the fire wall (directly behind the shock tower) that can easily be accessed. Pull the rubber grommet back and that will be your "positive" terminal. Use the shock tower bolt area for the "ground" connection.

Good luck.

Getting codes for mazda

the test connector is under the hood on the drivers side..
  1. Warm engine to operating temperature and turn ignition "OFF."
  2. Ground the test connector (1 pin wire) with a jumper wire. NOTE: Test connector is located next to the check connector in the engine compartment near the left side strut tower.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  4. If MIL illuminates, goes off, and stays off no codes are present.
  5. If MIL illuminates, goes off, and then starts flashing, codes are present.
  6. Count the flashes to determine the fault code.
