Three problems related to air bag light on have been reported for the 2004 Mazda Tribute.
On July 15 I was driving at a low speed and my air bag light came on. It randomly flashes and sometimes stays on for 2 to 3 days. It has not been fixed due to the cost of repairing it. If the air bag explodes while I am driving this could be fatal to myself, my 1 year old son and my 12 year old son. Every Mazda SUV / truck from 2004 has a recall except mine. The recall needs to extend to the Tribute because there is obviously a serious issue that's needs to be corrected.
Air bag light started blinking and now remains on. The 2004 Mazda Tribute has been in a normal manner and only has 61,000 miles.
The contact owns a 2004 Mazda Tribute. The contact stated that her air bag light illuminated, which indicated a failure with the system. She took the vehicle to a dealer on six occasions for the same failure. The first time the dealer replaced a wiring harness, the second time they replaced a seat module, the third time they had to reinstall the harness because they connected it improperly, the fourth time, they replaced the driver's side sensor, the fifth time they replaced the passenger side seat sensor, and most recently, they replaced the entire system. However, the failure continues. The dealer stated that nothing else could be done. The failure mileage was 72,000 and current mileage was 107,000.
