Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hi Im david, thanks for visiting the site, has anyone tested the alternator?
P0560 - System Voltage Malfunction Possible causes - Low battery charge - Battery defective - Loose or missing alternator drive belt - Faulty alternator - Open or short system voltage circuit
P1794 MAZDA - Engine Control Module Battery Voltage Low 0 | Add Comment Possible causes - Faulty Battery - Low battery charge - Blown fuseIwould have the alternator tested and i would also have the power input wire checked to the ecm by doing a continuity test and check for a high resistance short to ground on the same wire.
just checking in to see how its going
why do they "think" the ignition key cylinder is bad? Do not let them do anything until they can prove that its bad.
especially at that price.
ok. thank you
this what i hate. these frickin guys just throwing parts at cars without knowing if its bad or not. they told you it was bad because they had no idea in the first place, so they went with the most likely cause. well my friend, "most likely" dont fix cars.
unfortunately the dealer will probably need to reprogram the keys, so the immobilizer stops dumping memory
a certified locksmith with the proper equipment can also do it. it would be cheaper also.
as far as why did it happen now? why does anything on a vehicle quit working? it happens
it sounds like an intermittent transponder is what it sounds like. another thing is a weak battery (vehicle battery) can cause this. if the battery doesnt read at least 12.5 volts dc while sitting then it can issues with the fobs and key transponder. so check your battery voltage.
ive been around a while and have seen just about everything.. good luck to you. please accept the answer and leave a positive rating for me if you were satisfied with my assistance. thank you and have a great weekend.
