Answer 1
It could be the brake pedal position switch. It sends a signal saying the pedal is depressed allowing you to shift from park into gear. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoS4geeVQE1UAkhmJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3D2001%2Bmazda%2Btribute%2Bbrake%2Bpedal%2Bposition%2Bswitch%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701%26fr2%3Dpiv-web%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D5&w=1088&h=545&imgurl=ww2.justanswer.com%2Fuploads%2Fsupermazdatech%2F2011-08-08_223547_sw.gif&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.justanswer.com%2Fmazda%2F5duej-mazda-tribute-es-05-tribute-i-hear-electronic-high.html&size=19.3+KB&name=%3Cb%3EMazda+Tribute+%3C%2Fb%3EES+In+my+05+%3Cb%3Etribute%3C%2Fb%3E%2CI+hear+an+electronic+high+...&p=2001+mazda+tribute+brake+pedal+position+switch&oid=159afc2e83d61e1b7ecf1347c7e60769&fr2=piv-web&fr=yfp-t-701&tt=%253Cb%253EMazda%2BTribute%2B%253C%252Fb%253EES%2BIn%2Bmy%2B05%2B%253Cb%253Etribute%253C%252Fb%253E%252CI%2Bhear%2Ban%2Belectronic%2Bhigh%2B...&b=0&ni=48&no=5&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=12tf74a82&sigb=147403ucq&sigi=122ph9uj5&.crumb=OGLGC8oCoiN It works with the shift interlock preventing shifting out of park without a foot on the brake pedal. -
