    I have the same problem, but I put a brand new battery in yesterday. Today I made it to work just fine, but on the way home, weird things happened. Power seriously drained by turning on blinker. Radio died when A/C or vent fan was on. Turn those off, radio comes back on...... Low beam headlights do not work at all and the highbeams are dim. One is out completely along w/parking lights on left side. When phone was on charger, battery drained as opposed to charging. I think the phone battery is ruined. Car will start right up w/a jump, but will not continue to run. Alternator? Oh yeah, the old battery was oozing "stuff" out of the seams. Anyone have any ideas? Had to be towed.

    My 2003 mazda 6 has similar symptons. I put a new battery in it. It starts but only for about 5 minutes..then shuts off. Another thing that is wrong with it is the radio screen goes all crazy and u cant read the writing on it. Any Suggestions?

I had the same problem with my 2003 Mazda6 and it turned out to be a bad battery!

Check your battery connections, i had the same problem only to find out that the battery cable was corroded and causing an arc between the battery and cable.  It's a simple check.

You are describing a low battery, try charging it or, then have it tested, but chances are the battery is kaput.

I have a mazda millenia 01. I put a different cd player in my car. Cd playee would not play and engine light is on now. When i first start my car the gages go up, then back down.. lights on inside...

You apparently have a vehicle with the Anti-theft system on the Audio system. I would put the original player back in to avoid future problems! The vehicle will behave erratically while the replacement unit is installed!
