Best Answer

On a 1981 Mazda 626 (same engine)2.0 you remove the right/left cover on the steering column (three screws) and remove them. On the left side behind the key cylinder is the disc (round) ignition switch with several wires attached in a circular pattern around it. Wires and connectors (believe 4) go down the steering column from it (this is the ignition switch). The part # is Niehoff LC62411 on my 626. You remove this and install the new part in it's place. Problem is finding the part. Get one from a junkyard if nothing else. Also, the 82 Mazda truck is the same as an 82 Ford Courier (so maybe a Ford dealer has the part). Ford owns about 30% of Mazda and a Ford VP runs it.

Apparently you have NO clue that the truck has electronic ignition!

I own a 89 b2000 and the point gap is 0.45-0.55 and it DOES have points! I can take a photo for you if you like? So they are NOT all electronic ignition!

Yes, a Mazda B2000 is most definitely a 4-cylinder with a 2.0L engine. However, technically Mazda didn't produce the B2000 as a 1988 model. It was made in 1986-1987. Then in 1989 Mazda made the B2200 Pickup, which is a 2.2L 4 cylinder.

Why does the starter motor keep running It won't turn off 1984 b2000?

Sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck. Another possibility is the ignition key switch is not automatically returning from the start to run position. As the switches get older they seem to get stiff. Could be a weak spring in the switch or just gummed up lubricant. The easy test is to try turning the key counter clockwise after starting the engine and see if the starter motor stops running.
