Asked by for the 2006 Mazda Mazda6
The check engine (or transmission) light indicates that the computer has detected a malfunction in the engine/transmission control system and has diagnostic codes and data stored which would be essential in diagnosing the problem.
A technician with a scanner can access the diagnostic codes and data and then be able to give you a diagnosis.
Get yourself and the car to a Mazda specialist or a transmission shop before it gets worse.
