Idle Speed query

Today noticed a change in idle, normal at 750, but when gear selected (auto box) it starts to fluctuate down to 500 and back to 750 constantly.

Re: Front parking sensor's

Re: Front parking sensor's

There will no doubt be different systems for different countries and different years. I believe gilera is saying that on his/her car, by design, you have to momentarily select reverse gear for it to switch on the front sensors and they then switch themselves off again when a set speed is reached. S...

Re: Front parking sensor's

No switches it is activated by selecting reverse (auto box) goes off with speed. Need to reactivate at each parking, bit of a pain until you get used to it. Sounds like a faulty installation- what use are front sensors when you are reversing... I can assure you that is how it is installed here. Whe...

Come again - you need to put the car in reverse to activate the front sensors, to use them them when you go forward??..
As i said previously mine was fitted by Mazda agent in Gandia,Spain. The ony way to activate is to select reverse, ( Auto box).

Re: Front parking sensor's

I had them fitted by Mazda agents in Gandia Spain, work fine apart from the fact to activate i have to select reverse (auto box). If you forget as you park without selecting reverse there is no warning. Not a good idea.

I have had many cars with auto but not had this facility, is this a recent addition to this type of gearbox. I have searched web to see if this is described but s...
