    I had this same problem, and the Mazada dealer determined it was a faulty fuel pump - even though the truck only had 16,000 miles on it (I rarely drive it).



    A broken fuel pump should be a simple repair - less than $100 for the pump and maybe $100 to install it. In my old Mercury it cost me $35 for the pump and with just two bolts, I replaced it my self.



    But the dealer said that the pump is located inside the fuel tank and would cost $1,600 to replace.



    This is either terrible engineering or a deliberate design flaw that hits consumers in the pocketbook.



    As a postscript, the first time I went to put gas in the tank after the repair, gas spilled out onto the gas station floor. The dealer forgot to reconnect the filler pipe to the gas tank.

Sounds like you have a fuel pump issue. first check the fuel pump relay. it's in the junction box under the hood. replace the fuel pump relay with the a/c clutch relay or heater relay and try starting the vehicle if the vehicle starts it was the relay if it doesn't check to see if there is power going to the fuel pump if there is your fuel pump needs replacing if there isn't then check the wire harness for a break in the wire. please rate

SOURCE: Having problem with Mazda 6

#1 The negative battery cable is loose, corroded, damaged, or otherwise not making a good ground connection where it connects to the engine block.

#2 Another possibility, just as likely, is the positive cable not making a good connection to the starter solenoid.

#3 You might as well clean the battery clamps and battery posts (probably cleaned when new battery was installed)

Highly likely that all mechanical parts are ok. Do not change-out the starter.

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

My 2001aroura won't start..I try looking at the


If the engine will not crank, and the battery is charged, you would need to know if the starter is getting power from the battery and from the key switch thru that neutral safety switch.
Have you checked the starter power yet ?

My 2007 dodge charger didn't crank so I jumped it


A battery from 07 is still decently new to be that bad, but I would check the alternator first, just get the car running and unhook the positive cable from the battery, if the car dies the alternator is bad.

1998 mazda millenia will not crank


If the engine overheated and now won't crank, you may have locked it up. If you can't turn the alternator or the crankshaft with a wrench, the engine may be trash.
One of the cylinders could also be full of coolant from a blown head gasket.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

Car will not start


A simple jump start with battery cables should get the car started and recharge the battery. If you don't like dealing with battery cables, there are products that attach from inside the car using the cigarette lighter to jump start the car that work very well.
