Car QuestionsRefine by vehicle
When driving to work this morning, the "!" came on and stayed on for 5 minutes, lasting the duration of my morning commute. What does this mean? It was cold, and I didn't give my car time to warm up.
I'm looking at purchasing this car from Carmax and have an appt this afternoon at the Mazda dealership for a complete car inspection.
All the other power seat functions work except the up and down feature on the driver and passenger seat.
In addition when first started there is no power brake assist. I have to rev the engine to get the vacum to build. The engine seems to run fine above 1500 rpm and drives fine on the highway.
Suggestions to repair?
