Water intrusion into a connector 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.

2000 Mazda B3000 Problems
The Check Engine Light may come on and the engine will run poorly. During diagnosis the technician may find a trouble code for the Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP), P0340. It is recommended to check the CMP driveshaft for looseness in the housing because if the shaft is loose, a new sensor will be damaged again. If the shaft has play, the CMP sensor and housing unit will need to be replaced. Our technicians recommend using the factory type timin...
A dirty, or contaminated mass airflow (MAF) sensor can cause the engine to run poorly. There may be a Check Engine Light with trouble codes relating to the MAF sensor, P0102 and/or P0103. In some cases, carefully cleaning the sensor element will fix the problem, but replacement may be required.
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.
If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. The inertia switch is located on the firewall and can be tripped when the parking brake is set too hard and then released. The inertia switch should be reset, and will click when it is reset.

2000 Mazda B3000 Reviews
Well i have a Mazda B3000 Year 2000 bought it new as of today it has 289000 and it runs great. Most of the truck still original other than the alternator battery brakes and shocks i did burn a ECM at about 150000 miles got it replaced with one from a junkyard, it gives me a good mpg on the hwy. but it also helps that i drive like a grandmother but if there is no rushed why speed? im very happy with my truck and very sad that Mazda stoped production, i found the Ford Ranger very weak and they dont make them on 6 cyl so i will keep driving my truck and will never sell it hopefully one day it will reach a million miles
Bought this truck new in 2000. I now have 165000 miles on it and it runs most excellent. Been through eleven Minnesota winters and still looks good.
Best pick up to have!!
