Sounds like the timing unit which automatically turns off your dome lights after a few minutes is working backwards. Probably need a new unit.

The key is tied to the computer which controls the engine. Apparently the key you are using needs to be reprogrammed to the computer. The dealer can do this for you.

I can think of 2 possibles,it could be a bad battery cable or an intermitent short in the starter solenoid, check or have the battery cables and there connections on both ends first not only are they a cheaper fix but the problem you describe sounds like a current flow issue.Test them with or have them tested with an ohmmeter they should show o ohms resistance,and while not attributed to the problem I do not reccomend using Bosch spark plugs of any variety,the best plugs for any Japanese vehicle are NGK's,this comes from my personal experience with them and other techs that I have worked with.

If you have drum brakes in back instead of disc brakes, that could be your problem. Very common noise with drums. Pads, springs, could be sticking, or pistons if it is disc brakes

it is a dirty throttle plate. $280 is an absolute ripoff for a cleaning, it is about 10-15 minutes of work. They are probably quoting replacing the throttle body which about a $150 part.

Got to Autozone and get "CRC Throttle Body Cleaner". Remove aire inlet hose at throttle body with a screwdriver. Spray a *small* bit onto throttle plate, use clean rag or qtips to remove gum/varnish. Spray pivots and also clean around perimeter of the plate. Take it to an independent mechanic if you are unsure of the procedure.

there should be a release lever on side or front

You have to pull forward on the belts located at the bottom of the seat while pushing the lever on top of the seat to lower it. Make sure to take off head-rests or the seats won't lay flat. Its almost like pulling the bottom cushion off in a forward motion, Hope it helps

Hi there. depending on the outside temperature of where you live , you may encounter this problem. If the temperature goes below -1 C , there is a chance that the tire pressure light will go on. This is because the pressure in the tires decrease in cold temperatures and will increase when it gets warmer. I had this problem with my vehicle too and when the temperature warmed up today the light finally went off.

Run tests to see. Do you have spark to the plugs? You can use your inductive timing light or a cheap inductive spark tester pen to find out. Test fuel pressure Key on--Engine off, using a fuel pressure tester. Most parts stores have these on their "loan-a-tool" program. Use a noid light to test for injector pulse. Run a compression test.

How do you know there's no spark?
If engine cranks but won't start, that doesn't necessarily mean a no-spark situation. Try cranking the engine, then remove a spark plug and see if it's wet. If no, the problem is no fuel. If the fuel gauge is near empty, try adding a gallon of gas to the tank. If there's still no fuel to the engine, and the most likely reasons are 1) a clogged fuel filter or 2) the fuel pump relay has failed (fairly unlikely) or 3) the fuel pump itself has failed. If you haven't changed the filter for a while, might as well change it -- they're not very expensive. If that doesn't work, find the fuel pump relay (check owner's manual or online) and see if you can replace it temporarily with a non-essential relay from a different circuit.

Check your vehicle insurance or car club coverage to see if key replacement is covered. Then contact a mobile locksmith. It's a safer than trying to defeat the various interlocks.

On a 2006 Mazda Tribute which everyone tells me is a Ford Escape, in the cab, at the parking brake lever, remove the boot or decorative cover on the parking brake handle. The brake adjustment is a self-locking nut on the threaded end of the parking brake cable that connects to the left and right parking brake cables underneath the car.
The only adjustment possible is right there at the handle after you remove the boot that covers the parking brake handle in the center console. If the brake has been allowed to get loose, the cable may very well have come off the cable guide on the parking brake handle and there will be no braking and the cable may very well be cut or partially cut by the handle. With some straight screwdrivers push the cable into its guide and then adjust the parking brake.
But, underneath, there is no adjustment whatever possible for a 2006 Mazda Tribute.
On a 1991 F-250, yes, but not here. Don't get dirty for nothing. This is the easiest brake to adjust since the old screw handles.
