Where is the thermostat located on my 2000 madza b2500?
- Disconnect the heater return hose at thermostat cover. Disconnect ECT sensor and water temperature sender unit. Disconnect the upper radiator hose from the outlet connection. Remove the bolts. Pull elbow away from the cylinder head. Remove the thermostat and gasket.
The thermostat cover casting contains a locking recess into which the thermostat is turned and locked.
Do not use more than 15 - 20 ft ibs to tighten the thermostat housing bolts.

I have a Mazda B2500 (2000). Everytime it rains
You could have a windshield that is leaking water. Often this water will trickle down from the bottom/inside of the glass and then down the firewall, under the carpet or floor mat, and to the floor. The way I usually hunt for these is to remove the floor mat or carpet then get a flashlight and lay down in the cab so you can see under the dash area while someone sprays water on the vehicle with a garden hose. Often the leak will show up as a trickle that you can then backtrack to it's source. Another spot to look for is at the cowl in front of the windshield where air for the heater and a/c is pulled into the passenger compartment. The water drain holes in this area can plug up and allow water to overflow into the passenger compartment. Good luck, hope this helps!

Door ajar light keeps coming on when door is closed tightly
The problem is a dirty switch. use a can of wd-40 or equivalent and spray the door latch heavily. Next hold up on the door handle and work the latching mechanism back and forth really fast. Next repeat the process 2 or 3 times. It only takes a few minutes and your door latch sensor will be working like new again.
