Check to see if the wires that go from the hold light down on the shift lever aren't shorting because of the insulation peeling. I had the same thing happen to my 94 Protege but the light started doing that after I whacked the dashboard really hard so I must have messed something up under there. I had the same problem on a 93 Mazda and it was a bad fuse just search for it and put in a new one it will all start to work again. The speed sensor which is located up near the instrument cluster is bad. My 1994 is doing this too, I need to find out if the speed sensor is part of the cluster or if it's a separate item.
it could have a bad speed sensor
I suspect your hold switch on the shift lever might be bad..or ahs a broken wire.
The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.
Above the brake pedal,its black plastic.
My knee-jerk answer would be a TCM (Transmission Control Module) problem, but have a shop hook up a scan tool and they can tell you what is wrong.
because your car is broken
The HOLD light means you have an electrical problem with your transmission. See your mechanic ASAP.
It is run off of the same fuse as the engine computer.
Switch is defective or out of adjustment.
Have vehicle scanned at auto parts store--most will do this free
roughly 20 miles worth
You have a problem with the charging system. More than likely the alternator has failed.
To check the hold light blinking of a Mazda Protege, take off the plastic over the shifter tube or bar. Then take off the console below it and look at the wires that come up from the hollow center of the tube. The edge of the shifter tube may have cut through the wire insulation.
Remove the high mount brake light retaining screws from your Mazda Protg. Remove the high mount brake light wiring harness. Reverse the process to install your new high-mount brake light.
The alarm warning light in your 2002 Mazda Protg is an indication that the alarm system is deactivated. Remove the alarm fuse, for 10 seconds. Put the fuse back into its original slot.
you dont have strap on light cars just on pick-up's and big trucks
car stalled at red light and will not start. there is no spark from spark plug, help!
Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.
Typically the light will remain on if the fluid is low, or maybe the ebrake just pulled just enough that it is on..... or the switch that is triggered by the handle is faulty
I think its on the driver side there should be a panel on the right hand side near the excellerator
It's due to your car not having freon go and get it charged. The cold air is from you driving!
the common cause why the light is on is that your alternator is not working well,try to have your alternator checked .may be the carbon brush is already worn out.
