Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you tell me if both of these issues started at the same time? Is the check engine light coming on?
Thanks for getting back with me. This is typically an issue with the shift interlock cable in the shifter assembly or the shift lock solenoid. Do you have push button start or key start?
Thank you. Try moving the key around to see if it affects shifter placement. If that does not help then I would also listen closely to the shifter when you apply the brake pedal. If you do not hear a clicking then it may have a solenoid failure. Either way the shifter console will need to be disassembled to find the issue. If this is a shop you typically use that checked it out I would take it back and find out what they overlooked or did you plan on fixing this yourself?
I am sorry that this has happened to you. It is possible that they just missed something or did not do a very good job. I would give them the opportunity to make it right, and since you have 30 days get it dine right away. I would make them put you in a rental car also so that it does not burden you too much. If you need any help or advice along the way I am happy to assist.
It is possible, but I do not really see how the transmission itself can cause this.
That is what I suspected. This is something that I have ran across on this vehicle. I would assume that they balanced the tires to help with the vibration. If you need anything else let me know.
Thank you. I appreciate it. Please rate when you can also. Have a great day.
