Our Tribute is doing the same. Anyone help?

It can be the sensor or have the cap checked out.

The caps in these go bad. You can replace the cap/container (sold as one unit), or try putting in approximately 1 qt of coolant above the full line (sometimes this works).

the floating ball sinks and the sensor goes on to make the light come on there ios a recall for this bring it to your Mazda dealer
