2011 Mazda tribute 2.5 code B2A3A puddle lamp output circuit

This answer was rated:

2011 Mazda tribute 2.5 code B2A3A puddle lamp output circuit short to ground. The radio isn't working. Is this code related to the radio not working?

hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.

this is a false code and does not apply to your vehicle.

ITs looking like there is an issue with your SJB (smart junction box). this will require a dealer scan tool to configure and probably require replacement

where is smart junction box??

the smj is on the passenger side center console area. i have included a diagram for you.

any replacement of these requires programming

ya i unplugged stereo and plugged it back in and it works now

these radios are on a network, and if the there is an issue with either the radio or the smj, it will shut down one of the systems.

the radio should not cause this code. It might have shut the radio down as a precaution

clear the codes, and monitor for it doing the same issue in the future.

hopefully, it was just a glitch and wont return again. record the code and see if it returns

glad you found it!
