Customer Question
i have a 2006 mazda...
i have a 2006 mazda 6 - v6 . It keeps blowing a 15 amp fuze under the dash. it is the fuse responsible for transferring electricity to the starter. Any way, after changing the fuse last time. I got a slew of errors- U0100, U0101,U0155,P0051,P0037,and C0701. I am thinking that these are all connected to the short that is causing my fuse to blow but am not sure where to start and how to trouble shoot and fix the problem. Thanks
