Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute
My 2003 Mazda tribute misses and the battery light flashes. I have already changed the battery and the alternator.What else could it be?
My 04 Tribute had the same problem. It turned out to be the very early stages of the alternator going out. It lasted for almost a year before I needed to finally get it changed.

Sounds like part of a wiring harness is shorting to ground or breaking a ground connection. Check engine to frame ground straps and engine compartment wiring. Look for loose or broken leads esp. alternator and battery wires. Perhaps the power lead to the computer is faulty causing the truck to misfire. Any engine codes?
