Welcome to fixya... and hello Roger VanDerHorst,

You look to have two engine possibilities...
When unstated ... I always opt for the

Your trouble is going to MOST LIKELY resolve
to a BLOCKED EXHAUST. The engine must
able to breath to function... (see EXAMPLE)

MAZDA exhaust systems are pretty easy to work
on... but a CAN of LIQUID WRENCH would be my first recommendation...

Be safe & be LEGAL:
California & New York vehicle OWNERS need to pay
special ATTENTION if they are doing this work themselves...
The ENTIRE effort will be wasted if you use ANY non
C.A,R.B. compliant elements... You will run afoul
of some very powerful and UGLY laws... quite
deliberately abusive & expensive.

Happy hunting

Did you check the actual bulbs themselves? If yes, have you used a multimeter to determine if you have 12VDC at the tail light assembly?

  1. I own a Protege and once the low beam bulb burns on one headlight the car electronics quickly cook the bulb on the other headlight as well. it is a poor design by the mfr. Pull both bulbs to make sure the low beam is not cooked.

have you physically seen that the ac compressor is not running immediately the ac is turned on
first check
if it is then the problem may be in the climate control module so have that unit checked for operation

For a coolant leak you need to check all the hoses and fittings by radiator, heater core, expansion tank for leaks and/or integrity. Also make sure that your water pump is not leaking along with radiator cap and thermostat body. Overheat condition has no effect on battery - if it does not hld charge it is because it is chemically worn out and needs replacement. Until you correct water loss, have extra water in car at all times and run your heater full blast - windows open!!!!

Have you adjusted the adjuster to bring the shoes close to the drum? Always force the pistons in (the return springs should hold them in) and then adjust to make a tight fit after replacing. When the shoes are on right, there is no way for the piston to come out, as there is only a quarter inch of travel.

You definitely have an AC leak that has been missed twice. An evaporator is a common problem that is often missed ( not saying that's yours) Take it for a second opinion. if it keeps needing to be recharged its leaking. Its supposed to be a sealed system.

ac units stop working from ,
low gas ( holes in the system)
too much gas ( high pressure from excess gas , blocked , tx valve , condenser fan not working)
ac relay not working ( faulty ac thermostat , faulty relay)
compressor not working( fuse , ac clutch inoperative)
Water in the system ( changing the compressor and not vacuuming down the system for 2 hours to boil of the moisture in the air when the system was opened-- ice in the refrigerant at the tx valve causing a blockage
Wrong gas in use ( lubricant is not compatible with the gas causing problems )
take it to an accredited ac specialist to have it fixed properly before the cost exceeds what you would have paid in the first place by taking it to a professional
