2001 Mazda B4000 Problems

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.

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.

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.

Makes a clicking sound when ignition key is turned. The "theft" light and "check engine" lights flash rapidly while I'm trying to start it. Just had a new battery installed in August, 2010. It did this once before about a month ago, then no more problems until this morning.

2001 Mazda B4000 Reviews

2001 with 150k miles. By this point, the original suspension is very worn. The ride is not bad on the highway. I have not gone on long trips in it. The transmission started to kick but a maintenence flush and additive resolved that. Overall, I'm not disappointed.
