Customer Question
Hi my engine light...

Hi my engine light is coming on BT50 2012 132.00 KLM, has been coming on off last few months I'm traveling and its staying on

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No stalling and no code not set it goes away after awhile then comes back on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '12 Mazda?

BT 50 2012 XTR 3.2 L

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have removed the negative lead 10 mins ago but I removed and put back on maybe ill removed it leave off for then or so mins the air cleaner is to be changed when I'm near a dealer

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Also the yellow gesar wheel transmission is coming on off while travelling to remove it I turn the car off restart then goes away a few hundred kilo down the track is comes on again.

Hello there,

For these lights to come on, there must be intermittent codes set in one or more modules.

A scan from your local dealer would be more accurate.

Disconnecting the battery doesn't wipe the code history.

Hi Gary,
the car got us back home but yesterday its stopped and had no drive sounds like the convertor is u/s its in a workshop getting looked at no more help required thank you.RegardsKerry.
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Hi Kerry,

Hopefully not major, could be a transmission module issue, (TCM).

Torque convertors rarely fail these days.

Could be clutch pack issue, which would mean a rebuild.

All the best to you.
Gary
