Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

Help I have a 2002 Mazda tribute. There is a little red light that looks like a house or a greek building. It comes on when I start the car and then will go off about 2 or 3 minutes later. Then it will come on when I am driving but not all the time. The longest it has stayed on was about 10 minutes. what does this light mean? Can you please tell me? I do not have an owners manual. thank you, jpmjwalker

If its on the left side of the instruments and looks like it is a house with a chimney in the center its the low coolant light.
I hope this helps.

I GOT A 2002 MADZA TRIBUTE THERE A A LIGHT ON THE DASH BOARD THE SHAPE OF A HOUSE i DON'T KNOW WHAT ITS MEAN


I think the warning light is meant to be in the shape of a radiator - check your coolant level - it generally means your coolant is low. The coolant level sensor often fails on Mazda's however, so your 'problem' might actually be a dodgy sensor not a lack of coolant at all.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

My 2002 mazda tribute gets a severe shudder. moisture intrusion?


The shudder comes from ignition malfunctions. Replace the spark plugs and plug wires.
Check coolant level for the white smoke concern.

2002 Mazda Tribute V6 difficult to start.


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE IAC VALE OR IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE IS BAD, WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAP ON THE VALVE. IT IS LOCATED ON THE INTAKE RIGHT BEHIND THE THROTTLE BODY, JUST TAP ON THE SILVER PART WITH THE BACK OF A SCREW DRIVER A COUPLE OF TIMES. THIS SHOULD UNSTICK THE VALVE AND YOUR TRIBUTE SHOULD RUN. THEN IT IS JUST A MATTER OF REPLACING THE VALVE. YOU CAN GET THEM FROM ANY AUTO PARTS HOUSE.

My 2002 mazda tribute wont start at times


I have a 2003 tribute that was doing the same thing. It started right up but if you stopped at the store and came out it would start but not stay running. After waiting a couple hours it would start right up. We replaced the idle control valve and put in a new air filter because it was quite dirty and so far no problem. Give it a try.

Dash lights


I had this problem a while back and I put more antifreeze in the radiator overflow tank and that solved the problem. You may want to check your antifreeze level.
