I have a 2004 mazda6 and mine is doing the same thing. I took it to Mazda and of course it wasnt doing it when i took the tech for a ride to try to explain and show him what was going on. They told me that they cant look into what it is if they cant see what its doing. They told me to bring it in the next time it does it (which has been a lot) but its always on my way to work and from work, when of course the service dept. isnt open. Please let me know if you find a solution.

#1906 of 2862 my car stalled today in parkway...
Oct 25, 2005 (6:26 am)
not really sure if this was answered already b/c it seems i have a similiar problem like other mazda 6S vehicles but mine is automatic...not manual....problem is:
2005 Mazda 6S Automatic 6spd auto
I was on the parkway today and its raining and i guess cold...about 45 degrees and traffic was very slow but moving and i have my gas pedal touches oh so lightly but going slower sometimes then have to hit gas pedal a lil and so forth....ive noticed a kick back when going into 3rd from 2nd...and i was going like 10mph....which to me is weird but whatever...and it kept going from 2nd to 3rd but going very slow mph but im in bumper to bumper traffic....then all of a sudden i try to go and my car stalled...no shaking, no beeping noises...i didnt even know it stalled it was so quiet...so put it into neutral real quick and started up at the drop of a dime but now some my TCS light and *losing traction* light was on(picture of car fish tailing sort of) was permantly on but...i had traction and couldnt shut them off....i pulled over...shut everything off, heat, radio, lights....and restarted the car....and it everything was back to normal....i noticed again, later in more traffic, it was going to do it again...so this time i thru into the manual shifting and just left it in 3rd gear and shifted myself until traffic was normal....does anyone have any idea of what happened? i really dont believe its my driving b/c i was in traffic...but i just bought the car in February and to my knowledge...this car should not be stalling and to me, it seems its a tranny problem but its automatic..i have no clutch...please, any response or feedback would help...thank you very much

My mom returned her car to the dealer -- they paid the balance of her loan and gave her money towards her new car. Look under your state government website for the lemon law.
#1910 of 2862 Traction Control System [gweedostyle]

my TCS light and *losing traction* light was on(picture of car fish tailing sort of) was permantly on
Judging by the TCS (traction control system) light I wonder if a sensor is acting up? Your mention of rain seems to be very important also as that may be causing wheel slip. What has your dealer said?
Here's an explanation of TCS from Bosch:
"In order to maintain directional stability and prevent the vehicle breaking away, the wheels should neither lock up during braking, nor should they spin when driving off.
Bosch TCS prevents the wheels from spinning. It ensures good traction, stability and steerability when driving off or accelerating. Each wheel is continuously monitored by wheel-speed sensors. TCS evaluates the wheel-speed sensor signals and immediately recognises when a wheel is about to start slipping. In this case TCS is activated and regulates the drive torques of the driven wheels. This electronic wheel-slip control selectively brakes individual wheels and intervenes in the engine management."

in addition to this, your correct, maybe there is a short somewhere as well that set off the sensors....but the point of my thread is my car stalled....im not to worried about about the TCS b/c i knew i had traction and my handling of the car was fine....but the thing of the gears and the kickback....and then i stalled...i mean the car is only 7 months old...my car should not be stalling i dont care in what condition, ya know? ive been at work all day i havent called my dealer yet...im actually going to call before i leave work around 5pm EST....see what they say...ive been busy all day and really couldnt call
ok just got off the phone with the dealer service dept. explained to him of what happened and his lovely answer was "we dont know we have to see it first".........dont you just love dealerships? so i made an appointment for next week for when im on vacation...and they have to "look at it"

Big shock, the dealer has had it for 2 days and they have no idea what is wrong with it. They can't replicate the problem and basically said it was driver error.
Please post again if any of you find a solution.
