2006 Mazda B3000 ProblemsRuns Poorly, Possible Check Engine Light
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.
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.
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.

2006 Mazda B3000 RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The windshield wiper may have been produced without grease applied to the output shaft gear. After a period of continuous use on the high speed setting, this lack of grease could cause the gear teeth to distort or fracture, resulting in the loss of wiper function. An inoperative wiper during inclement weather conditions could cause a crash due to impaired visibility. Dealers will inspect the wiper motor for the presence of grease. Grease will be applied to the wiper motor gears if necessary. The Mazda recall number is 3705K.
