Question about 2005 Mazda Tribute

2 Answers

2005 mazda tribute battery problem.

I came home from a weekend vacation and my battery was drained. A friend came over and we tried jump starting it with his car. We let it charge for maybe 20 min and tried to start it maybe 4 times. Finally, I said lets just get a battery charger from the store and charge it over night. We got one, took it home and I charged it for about 10 min and it said it was fully charged, but since i've taken it out I get no dash lights or anything when I try to start it. The next morning I tried it again and now my gages move, the anti-theft light blinks, and the low battery light comes on when I try to start it. Should I take it out again and charge it? I'm afraid if I do, I'll be back to square one again and get no response from trying to start it. Dose my car have an immobilizer on it as a anti-theft device, is that what I'm up against when I remove the battery? My connections are tight, and lights and radio work, and I dont' have any blown fuses from jumping it. I really need to get this fixed so I can be back at work again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Joe

    battery drains after a couple of days. I had professionally checked but unable to find a solution. Battery just simply dies. I jump start it and charge the battery but it won't last. Any suggestions?

2002 Mazda tribute won't start but can jump, car will shut off while driving


you mentioned new alternator and battery, but it seem that the alternator is not charging, when you install the new battery the car started and run and after hours of running specially if head light is on the car shuts down. this is an indication that the alternator is not charging. (factory defect) have it checked or return part to auto supply.
if alternator is good and you have the car jumped and run it will not shut down even if your battery is dead because the charge of the alternator is enough to power the electrical system of the car until you turn it off. this applies to all cars

Had a truck that kept killing battery and we unplugged the air conditioner control panel and no more dead battery. Don't know if will be helpful but worth a try.
