I had the same problem. It is caused by a loose/bad connection between the a/c switch and the relay to the blower/compressor. If you remove the radio, you will find what looks like a "plug" that has a number of wires running into it (the relay), that connects to the a/c switch in the dash. If you unplug this relay the a/c stops working completely. I unplugged the relay and with a very small screwdriver bent the edges of the connectors inside it on all the wires, to make sure that each of the wires was making good contact with the metal "tabs" on the a/c dash switch. If you pull off the dial in the dash and remove the plastic nut (a little tricky) you can take the switch all the way out of the dash and plug it straight into the relay to test the connections and make sure they are solid and firm. I had tried everything, including replacing the switch, with no luck, but this solution has solved the problem. The a/c now works on 1, 2, 3 and 4. Good luck! I had the same problem.

Can 1997 Mazda protege auto transmission swap to 1999 Mazda protege?

not likely. the 1997 Mazda protege is a different chassis than the 1999 protege (BHA to BJ, respectively). the two transmissions between the two generations are also different, the BHA utilizing the FB4A-EL automatic transmission and the BJ utilizing the FN4A-EL automatic transmission. they also have different engines. you're better off going to a junkyard and pulling a auto trans from a third generation protege (1999-2003)...that would work. if you have any further questions, you can follow this link: www.protegefaq.net hope this helps!
