Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Auto Parts and Repairs, Mazda Millenia

If I remember right there is a technical service bulletin about water getting into the ecm. If I am right he may find the computer either full of water or if you live in a climate that has freezing weather, the case may even be cracked. In the past we have been able to perform the recommended repair according to the tsb sucessfully, in some cases had to replace the ecm. Unfortunatley this question was moved from the Old FAQ, and...

Anyone out there have a continuing ac musty mildew smell intermittently and continually eminating throughout the car?

Change your cabin air filter first. If it persists, there are chemicals available to clean the evaporator core area of the A/C system through auto parts stores. Also, you can spray a mildew-killing deodorizer ( Lysol makes a "Soft Powder" scent that's not too unpleasant) into the fresh air intake while car & A/C are running. A/C should be on "fresh air" setting. Spray until scent is noticable inside car. My intakes are just ahead of windshield, on passenger side. Open hood...

How do you clear codes P0300 P420 and P0304 from a 1997 Mazda Millenia?

OBDII codes are cleared with a scan Tool. I recently had 3 vehicles with the CEL/SES on. Although a parts store read the codes for me and I affected the repairs, I still needed a OBD2 Scan Tool to clear the codes. I purchased AutoEngnuity's ($250 with tax)OBD2 PC-based Scan Tool software online which comes with an OBD2 interface module (USB, or RS232) to connect to the vehicle. The device has already paid for itself, and it can do more than...

Locate the 3-wire bundle that leads to the bulb; those wires terminate in a plastic connector that is attached to the back of the bulb. As you view the connector from the top, you should see a compressible clip on each side of the connector. These clips are somewhat...
