#1821 of 1866 Airbag indicator light problem
Jun 13, 2007 (5:27 am)
I hope someone can help. I own a Mazda Tribute 2002 V6. 6 months after I purchased it, I had a problem with the airbag indicator light appearing on the daskboard. It would blink on and off and then it would stay on. The garage at the dealar replaced a sensor module on it. Now 5 years later and guarantee being expired, I am running into the same problem where the light blinks and then it stays on while driving.
Has anyone out there experienced the same problem and if so, how did you resolve it? Must I bring it to the dealer to get this repaired? Any info would be nice.

Just bought a used 2005 GT Tribute with 39K mileage last week. It was just last night I noticed that chirp or squeaking sound that seems coming from the right side, which comes and goes. Most of the time, its not there.
I think it's already been discussed here before, I'll keep looking for the postings.
If there's new info about it, it'll be much appreciated.

#1825 of 1866 Getting ready to buy used '03 Tribute ES V6 4WD
Jul 24, 2007 (5:39 pm)
Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. I'm purchasing my new to me Tribute tomorrow if all goes well with the 2nd test drive. On my first, and my boyfriend's separate test drive, we noticed a whine. The salesman drove it and sent it to the shop for a bearing replacement. I need to drive it again to see if I can still detect the sound. Also, I asked if all of the recalls on the '03 Tribute were addressed. I got a less than thrilling response: "The shop checks for all of those things before we sell it to you." I guess I am looking for some advice on this before I purchase it. Please respond and wish me luck too!

I have had this same problem since I drove my 2002 mazda tribute off the lot. I have called mazda canada a number of times and have complained to the dealer. They won't do nothing about it. Its been in the shop a number of times but the problem keeps coming back.I can't even sell it cause no one wants this problem. If anyone has any info please let me know

im not sure if this is a good remedy for the airbag indicator but this is what i did to my 2005 tribute and since then i had no more blinking airbag indicator --locate a plug/connector(dont what its called)underneath the driver and passenger seat. Take it apart and spray a little of wd 40 on both sides then plug it together again.

I have a 01 Tribute and started experiencing the same problem last winter. I took it to a Madza dealer and they could not fiqure out the problem. I also took it to a local machanic who could not figure it out too. I am still experiencing the same stalling problem and shaking. What did you do to resolve your problem. Did the indentified the problem? I need you help.
