Had the identical problem. It began after Mazda repaired my liftgate latch as part of a recall. The rattle was caused by a loose part inside the liftgate latch. They were able to repair it easily, however, when they finished, the rattle was gone, but the glass wouldn't lock on the liftgate. Brought it back again for another easy fix. Now everything is fine. Sounds like you may be having the same problem.

Had the same happen to mine. However, now that the lock has been fixed, the rattle is back. I'll get it looked at again.
#1769 of 1866 Regular chirp being heard??
Jul 20, 2006 (4:15 am)
In my 2005 Tribute, I am hearing a chirp that seems to be coming at a somewhat regular interval from the mid to rear section of the vehicle. I comes on mostly on acceleration, but it can also be heard at other times. It sounds like metal to metal touching. There are times when it is not heard. Any ideas??

I bought the connector for this but the trailer lights did not work, There must be something else that is needed to make it work. Uhaul had to rig the harness to my tial lights which caused my cruise control to stop working when the night tail lights came on. Anyone else know what else is need to make the trailer lights work?

I think I jinxed myself, lol. I asked a couple of weeks ago what I can expect from my 03 Trib w/80K+ miles on it as far as longevity goes, etc. (with proper maintenance of course)
Well mid July I had an O/C and sticker put on it, then noticed w/in the next week that my tranny started to slip, dropped it off the dealer last Sunday - needs a new tranny, thank dog I dropped 1300 for the extended warranty when I bought it, so I think this will be a $100 deductable, plus the $80 I'm spending on a rental for the weekend.
"new" tranny only comes w/a 12 month/12K warranty on it, I think that's a bunch of BS.
Whaddya think now, should I still pay her off and keep her? I like my truck, would love to hang onto it, but that NEW tranny that came w/it only lasted 80K, what can I expect out of a rebuilt/reconditioned one?
~sigh~ I really don't want to have to buy a new vehicle, I was so looking forward to getting rid of my car payment.
I wonder how much extending my extended warranty would cost, according to the company (CNA) I can call shortly before the one I have expires and renew it but I don't know if its worth it.

What year is your Tribute? I have a 2005 model and I had to get it wired by the dealership as I was advised that my waranty would be voided if I went aftermarket. From what I understood, when you buy and select the towing packadge, the whole wiring harness is different in the vehicle. In my case, I did not get the towing packadge so they had to modify the harness to be able to connect the towing wirring harness. This was a 6 hour process.

Just ordered a nice Alpine CDA-9857 for my '03 Trib along w/the iPod adapter and necessary wiring, bracket, etc.
Anybody have ANY experience swapping out a giant in-dash system for a smaller, better deck? Any advice?
Where the heck is everybody???
#1776 of 1866 Dashboard Indicator Light
Aug 14, 2006 (6:18 pm)
I have a Mazda 2001 ES Tribute. One of my dashboard indicator lights is on. I purchased the car from Carmax and did not receive an owners manual. The indicator light in question is next to the temperature gauge in the Tribute. It is the fifth light, out of six. It's under the air bag deployed indicator light (4th light). The symbol looks like a radiator or battery. Does anyone know what this light indicates when it comes on. The light does not stay on. It only comes one after the car has been running for several minutes.
