Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
If you did not have these issues prior then it can be: a new bad sensor, damaged wiring to the sensor, sensor or linkage adjustment. Can you check those using the links below?
Thanks for using Just Answer, and rating me so I am compensated, Chris
Let me know the results of the swap and cable adjusting.
As long as the sensors tests fine, the wiring is not damaged, the sensor is adjusted correct, and the linkage is adjusted correct. Then its a fluke failure and now there are concerns within the transaxle.
There is nothing in the center console that electrically tells the computer the gear you have selected. The NSS switch does that. Do you have a scan tool that can see what gear position is being received at the PCM from the NSS?
We are at a stand still on the diag without a tool. Since you have adjusted the sensor, linkage, and tested the sensor. We must know what the PCM is seeing prior to removing the pan and working inside the transaxle.
Hello again Chris here,
