Question about 2006 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

Mazda 2006 Tribute 6 cy - why is dashboard key light on when key not in but goes off when driver door is opened?

I went out to car this morning and noticed that dashboard key light was on. Went off when I opened door, back on when I closed door. The last time I drove car was 4 days ago. That night neighbor's dogs started barking. I looked out & parking lights were flashing. Went out to car & key light was flashing. Went off when I checked turn signal which seemed to not be in exact Off position. Went back in house & noticed interior light in back of car was on. Had to manually turn it off. No one had turned on that I know. This key light could have been on since then but I hadn't been out to car before this morning. Car starts. What is problem?

    Thanks, Brandon. Light is staying on (blinking) when door is shut or open now. My Power Steering Pump is having problems. Could this have broken wires in the column?

I have a 2007 golf r32 last weekend the car started and then immediately stopped with immobiliser active reading on the dashboard the battery is fully charged and both keys have new batteries.


Sounds like the tiny transponder in your keys has failed.or dropped.out while your changed /checked batteries. Small glass bead about 2mm diameter and 8mm long. Check where you drooped it ?
Or reset the keys. Driver door open, Key in the ignition, and press.and hold all buttons u.til tiny red light on keys ( pin hole youve probably not noticed before) lights up and flashed to pair after 5seconds press open door. Then close and open again keep driver door open. Repeat with second keys.
Should fix it.

Car ajar light and alarm goes off on 2005 tribute


Pits one of the five door ajar switches. They are located in the door latch mechanism that holds the door closed. The best way to figure out which one it is is to scan the body control module. With all the doors closed. It will tell you which door is giving the open signal. This will need to be done with a high end scan tool that any good shop or the dealer will have. The most common one to fail is the driver front door.

Mazda Tribute won't start and has no electricity


This is a common problem with Mazda tribute and Ford escape. Replace the ignition switch. Actually, if you close the doors and turn everything off. Insert key and turn to on position, do not start, verify all dashboard lights come on. If they are, just press key in and jiggle around a bit, then try starting, u may have to do it a couple of times to start it. But, change the switch and possibly the key tumbler..do switch first and test. .then key tumbler if not successful. Both parts should cost less than $80..good luck.

P.S. you can replace the switch yourself, remove steering column 4 screws, switch has a yellow or white markings and is on the left of the column opposite the key side.

I opened my car this morning and left the key inside as i went to get water to defrost the ice the door closed by itself as it sometimes does but the lock slammed shut with the keys inside i am now late...


just smash the back window as time os of an essence ,always keep a spare key ,and another trick is to have a key cut with no chip in it as these are expensive then grease it and tape it and wire as well to underside of car so at least car can be opened
