Hi Steve,

Firstly you do need to be 100% sure this is not a battery or battery connection problem. Disconnect the battery, clean the posts connections, trickle charge the battery for 12 hours, and if possible carry out a \"load test\" to establish it\'s health.

BUT, immobiliser faults are rife on these cars. To find out all about this visit , the Ford Probe Immobiliser web site. It is fiddly and tiresome, but could save a lot of money !

Regards, Adam

Hey, Dynamic, why didn\'t that web address come up as a valid link? I did the http bit !!! Are the inverted commas the problem ?


Sorted. Yes it was the inverted commas causing the problem. DD

Just remember it's not really a Ford;It's a Mazda.

It may well share some parts with the 626 but it is not a Mazda and is not made in Japan. It has more in common with the 626 sedan made in Detroit, with all its accompanying build quality problems.

Steve, from the symptoms you describe I think you may find the american website for Probe/626/MX6 useful. Although the problem you describe occurs on 93-94 automobiles this could be applicable to your model in the UK.

The site address is

See section 3 which states that this \'ignitor module\' problem is known to all Ford and Mazda dealers (in the US).

If you go to section 6 and click on \'distributor/ignitor module\' you will find a fuller explanation and how to deal with it. I hope that this is helpful. Let me know how you get on.
