Customer Question

I have a Mazda Sedan - bought 29/12/2009 with 46,273 klms on the Odometer.
The ABS Warning Light stays on as well as the TCS/DSC Indicator Light also stays on.
We have had it inspected by an Auto Electrician who has checked data ABS and all power supplies and reports that all is okay. The Auto Electrician reported that is probably needs a new pump for this problem and he suggested it would be in the order of $4000 for a new unit to rid the car of these symbols lighting up on the dashboard.
We were sent to this Auto Electrician by our Mechanic who states that this should not be happening to a Mazda 3 with this amount of klms on the Odometer.
We would like to know if this is a fault with the Mazda 3 and why should this be happening to a Mazda with such a low mileage, a car that has only been used by me for around town.
We purchased this car from Key Motors in Townsville North Queensland.

Hi Ian,

Can you tell me if a code was set in the ABS module for this condition?

If so, can you list the code for me please?

As a Gold Certified Holden Technician, I can assure you that the best people for you to go to are MAZDA, the technicians are factory trained, and they have all the diagnosis aids as necessary.

I have seen many faults with ABS, module failure these days would only be a minority.

No we do not have any code.
We have been driving this car with the lights showing - is this safe?

Hi Ian,

Have you had Mazda look at your car?

While any warning light is on the module function would be disabled.

So in this case, no ABS, no ESP (DSC).

The car is still safe to drive, until the point of whether the added safety of ABS etc.

More than likely safe for you and your wife, if you have some driving years.

Could be issue for an inexperienced young driver in wet conditions.
