Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Check engine, don't know the codes. Battery is constantly producing corrosion have not gotten it tested, no
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

ok so if you can get that thing up to the auto parts store they can do a scan for the codes and also the battery needs to be tested they can do all that there for free, the battery needs to be checked though and terminals cleaned that could be causing all this trouble, make sure they read the codes first before removing the battery terminals
