2001 Mazda B2500 Problems

Rough Running Idle, ABS Light Illuminated, and Check Engine Light

Water intrusion into a connector (X309) located under the cab, beneath the driver's seat, can cause a rough idle, erratic speedometer operation, ABS Light and Check Engine Light illumination, and automatic transmission shifting problems. If needed, connector repair parts are available from Mazda dealers, and possibly some Ford dealers.

High Engine Idle with Manual Transmission

A high idle speed can be caused by a poor connection at the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Connector replacement kits are available from Mazda dealers and possibly some Ford dealers.

Crank but No Start Condition and No Spark

The engine may fail to start due to an electrically shorted sensor. Some of the sensors may internally short and not blow any fuses. A technician may find no spark and no operation of the fuel injectors in the diagnosis. One way a technician may isolate the defective sensor is by disconnecting sensors one by one to see if the engine starts.

2001 Mazda B2500 Reviews

10 years old and runs like its new. I replaced the battery a year ago, other than that everything is fine. The "check engine" light came on yesterday (I almost fainted) but I put a quart of oil in it, came online to check that dis-connect and re-connect battery would re-set the light. It stays off.
