If you had to jump start the LR/RR then the battery was weak. If the car then ran for a while then died I would suspect that the alternator has failed and if you have no power the engine will stop running. The alternator is where I would look first .
You should also get the LR/RR scanned once you have power back and it is running again to see what engine related fault codes if any the computer is generating. All the local mechanics will have a scan tool to do this.
Your battery will also need to be recharged and checked for condition. If it is on its last legs it will need to be replaced, especially if the cranking amps reading is low. Only expect to get 3-4 years out of them.
To be honest Phil-- I do not know or work on a
But in my 50 years of experience, I have only seen &
heard of Ford & some Mazda Products, that every had
a Fuel Safety Shut Off Switch & they should only open
& shut off the fuel pump, if you have a very hard & serious
Sounds more like a low voltage current flow in the ground circuit(harness). Or the voltage output from ignition switch. If No check engine light ever came on, or is not on, then the PCM/ECM is telling us there is No fault anywhere, TCM-automatic transmission computer- uses VSS- vehicle speed sensor, to know when to shift gears. A low input power to any of these control modules would result in lack of performance Rough shifting could be caused by low fluid level
1. Check all fuses 2. ensure the battery cables are tight. 3. Check negative from battery has ground to frame rail 4. Check Transmission Fluid Level.

change or charge the battery and make sure you install the correct alternator capable of supplying the correct amps your car needs otherwise it wont charge correctly/ check your electrical wiring it must be grounded somewhere or the connection is incorrect thats why ur battery drains...
looks like you have something draining the battery (something electrical staying on) disconnect your battery negative terminal and connect a test light between the battery post and the wire clamp if the light comes on you have battery drain (make sure interior light is out when testing) you now need to go through all elctrical systems to trace the reason why ( check boot light goes out first this was a favorite cause)
if the battery goes flat overnight but works fine when driving
there are only two possibilities. either the battery is faulty and not holding charge or there is a current drain on the electrical system
when standing. have your battery drop tested if ok check that current
drain does not exceed 50 miliamps with everything switched off .
common causes of drain are boot lamps, glove box lamps, faulty relays,
faulty cigarette lighter sockets,and leaky diodes in alternator.
to check for these try pulling fuses one at a time to find the faulty
circuit. hope this helps
