Nope. but disconnecting the battery won't accomplish what you want. you're cel will still be there, and you'll have to reset your dsc.

To make the DSC operable, do the

2. Turn the steering clockwise fully,
then turn it counterclockwise fully.
3. Make sure the DSC OFF indicator
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF
position, then turn it to the ON
5. Make sure the TCS/DSC indicator
light goes off.
If the TCS/DSC indicator light and the
DSC OFF indicator light remain
illuminated even after turning the
ignition switch to the ON position,
consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.
or what u can do is this, go to a local shop n or dealership non mazda, n have them use a microscanner, generic would work has in my case, if its generic it should read off the DTC, then dependin on what urs is, then u can go from there if its small problem u can repair, or take to a dealership for warranty work.
no is not out of warranty, i work from 630am to around 7pm by than dealerships is closed. i was coming from work and autozone was open and i needed a quart of oil hey thanks guys ... today i got to take the car in i went late to work and got a rental from dealership... a neon...
Ug, sorry to hear they disrespected you with a neon. I've seen your car pics - you've done a lot to make it look distinctive. I guess there is really nothing they could offer that would compete. I'd be curious to know how many of your coworkers noticed your car missing today.
i got the car back today. the car had a leak on the evaporative emission system, they replace they replace the evaporative emission system. the leak was real small... i was real please with the service ... but man that neon was a piece of **** it had 25000 miles only but felt like if it was going to come apart...
BTW, it is really obvious how pampered many of us have become when we complain about a FREE loaner car some of the dealers provide. Maybe walking would be preferred?
Ug, I do remember getting out-of-warrenty service at the Chrysler dealership and getting first a 20-year-old Dodge 300 loaner, then nothing at all when they gave up their loaner fleet (I think it died of old age). However, when buying a brand-new-car in 2005 or 2006 I expect part of the price covers a warrenty and a near-equivalent (4-door, 4-seater) replacement car when the car I bought (which should be running) is in the shop.
You're right, we're spoiled - but we also paid to play.
