Disconnect the battery hot lead for a little while so the computer has to reset. A half our is time enough. Then reconnect your battery, turn the switch on, you'll see the check engine light which is normal, start the engine and the light goes out. If it doesn't go out upon startup, the #2 sensor wasn't all that was faulty. Put the diagnostic unit back on it to find another code and research that code to find the problem.

When that light comes on, it is indicating charging system problem which could mean alternator not charging for one reason or another like loose belt, faulty alternator, or yes, bad battery or connection at battery, for example. First & easiest thing to do is check all your connections to battery, which you've probably done, and make sure they're tight & clean. Make sure belt driving alternator is good & tight, and in good shape. Now boost the vehicle to get it going & test voltage at battery, after you take cables off. My guess is in your case, the voltage will begin to go down, indicating a bad alternator, that will need to be replaced.

1. Typically Mazda builds engines with very close tolerances therefore they are HIGH interference engines.
2. Every car manufacturer has specialty tools that are needed. This includes all foreign and domestic.
3. Any tool that is REQUIRED to repair a car will not be cheap because the manufacturer does not want you tinkering with it. Therefore they engineer it to require the tool.

2008 mazda tribute abs and all wheel problem when you start the vehicle all lights are out after computer check but drive 1 km abs lights and all wheel lights comes back on

That's telling us that the abs is passing the self check when you turn on the key. When th e light comes on after you start moving it usually means that a sensor is not sending a single or a signal is messed up. A scan tool will tell you wich wheel to focus on. It is fairly common for the exciter rings on the front drive axles to break and cause this code. It wouldn't hurt to inspect these for crackps or misalignment. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!
