Hello, is this light flashing when engine running and you are driving?
Does it start and run? have you tried this
Ok, I too own a Mazda Tribute, same vehicle. That light is the antitheft light, By design it is to be blinking with key off and parked, This is to be a visual deterence for anyone trying to steal the SUV, That light starts blinking after you turn engine off and remove the key. It will blink all the time till you start it up and the light will go out, This is 100% normal , The only time there is a problem is when the light is blinking after you start it and or it does not start which then means a problem with the chipped key or sensor and it is in antitheft mode and computer prevents it from starting, This then takes a bit of diagnostic /scanner etc etc to find out the problem, Could be just the key so try another or the sensor or another antitheft issue
