Mazda B3000 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Steady throttle. If you punch down it will backfire and then accelerate
Like I said, it runs and starts up perfectly once the engine is warmed up. If I turn the truck off and go to start it up half an hour later, it will start up with no problem. But if I wait too long, it gives me trouble. It just clicks and clicks each time I turn the key, and I have to turn the key at least 10 times very fast and hold it on the last turn before it wants to start cranking. When it clicks like this, the dash lights and headlight dim. The battery was tested and is supposedly fine, the alternator isn't an issue because the battery tested at 100% and the gauge says it's charging. The starter was replaced, as well as the battery cables, but I still have the issue. It didn't start doing this until I drove the truck for 8 or so hours straight when I went out of town. I honestly have no idea what else I can check. It takes a jump, and everything points to the battery, but the battery tested fine, and I don't want to replace the battery if I don't need to. What is wrong with my truck?
When you turned the engagement switch on you could here it click now nothing. could it be a solonoid, fuse or switch?
Battery is new. Started 2 months ago fine.
Replace the camshaft senor, ERG valve, cleaned the mass air sensor and throttle body, changed the transmission fluid.
Worked last week. Now 4 wheel dash light will not come on and no 4 wheel
Starts easily after initial start No check eng light
there is no door key with the truck.the only way to get into the locked truck is with the electronic door fob. did this vehicle come with a door key separate from the ignition key. the ignition key does not work in the doors. i would like the option of unlocking the vehicle manually in case the fob malfunctions. thank you for your time.it also has an alarm installed on it.
steering wheel air bags did not deploy
I replaced the charcoal canister, vacuum switch, EGR, oxygen sensor and the gas cap to no avail. The check engine light has returned. I had the Knetchs sales associate again verify the code and it is again 1443. Problem is the computer is an idiot and cannot distinguish the difference between one failed component to another.
I just received my truck back after getting a new engine and transmission. The fob was not working, but the shop said that it just needs to be reprogrammed by putting the key in the ignition and turning it on and off 8 times within 10 seconds, leaving it on run, then pressing the lock button on the remote within 20 seconds, then turning the ignition off. Well, I tried it, and it didn't work. I locked the truck and went to bed. This morning I went to unlock it with the key, and it wouldn't unlock! What do I do?
I drove my truck to the gym and when it was time to go I put the key in the ignition and turned it. Nothing happened I pressed the clutch all the way to the floor and then I tried again. Nothing. Long story short I took it to Mazda they told me it was the PATS module and told me it could cost anywhere from 700 to 1200$ To fix it. I want to know has anyone else ran into this problem?
Starts fine, runs smooth only hesitates at under 45 mph or like in 4th gear or overdrive, other than that runs fine
I tried to change the crankshaft synchronizer and the camshaft positioning sensor and it still squeaks the same if not a little more . think it might be the idler pulley or possibly but hoping not my harmonic balancer
I was told it was the crankshaft synchronizer and the CPS but everything I have looked up says the noise would be coming from the back of the motor if it was that. I think the noise is coming from some where i the front center of the motor. it will only do it when truck is in neutral when clutch is let out in first the noise will go away until the clutch is pushed back in but it does not do it all the time and sometimes rarely at all the noise is not constant it does it on and off
sounds like noise comes from front center of motor I was thinking it could be idle pulley fan clutch or harmonic balancer
The temp outside was 57 degrees. Is this unusual.
The 01 B3000 has more than 250.000 miles on it.
When I go to start the truck I can turn the key to the on position and push the clutch in and it will start and every time while driving when I push clutch in to shift the starter will kick in. I have checked the starter relay and all fuses and all is good there need to know where to go from there
