One car battery replaced in my carport by AAA before which the computer went completely off track. Four trips to the nearby auto inspection station so I could send in my plate renewal and property tax on the car, all to no avail because the computer wasn't rebooted. One trip to DMV to discover they only do the necessary waivers from 8 to 10 p.m. Meantime, hours spent running the car around on longer than necessary errands to try to get the computer rebooted. While juggling medical appointments and situations for my wife and I. What a nightmare. Are Mazda computers particularly poor, or is this standard? When I jumper cabled the other car, a Toyota, a few days of errands had it passing inspection. Tomorrow back to DMV on the early shift. Does this have to be this difficult?
