Hey guys, does anyone know where the ground point are for the Alternator? I've just replaced it due to bearing noise and no charge, but it's still not charging. It's outputting 12.1V at the Alternator terminal. I've cleaned up battery posts, ground points to the battery, engine ground point (engine mount) and also any random ground points I could see. I don't have access to a wiring diagram unfortunately. Any help is appreciated.
I have a 1998 626 2L Mazda Station Wagon. In the last year the locks have been playing up, so that only the driver's lock will automatically unlock the rest of the car. Yesterday, when trying to turn the key to lock the door, it would turn but not lock the door. Does anyone know a good solution? Is it simply buying a new key (with chip) or replacing the cylinder door lock?
There seem to be a few issues like this posted previously but they don't match my issue exactly so I thought I'd ask:
My turn signals/Hazard lights in my '98 626 seem to work intermittently. The problem has gotten worse over the past 2-3 weeks to the point where I'd say they only work about 25% of the time. I'm not sure if it's just co-incidence, but turning the wheel seems to help me turn them on (but not always, and less and less each day). For example, if I pull up at an intersection and try to signal and it doesn't work, turning the wheel over will often allow me to turn them on. When it does work they will flash maybe 5 or 6 times and then stop. The issue happens turning both left and right. All the bulbs work when the signals actually work.
I've checked the fuses and they seem fine and my next stop was to get a new flasher relay. However, I just wanted to see if anyone could tell what the issue was with the above before doing so. My research seems to have me split between Flasher relay, hazard light switch, combo switch in the column, with an outside chance that it's the ignition switch (although perhaps not applicable to this particular vehicle).
