    I came from Indiana to Texas to see my sister graduate college. I drove down in a 1989 Mercury Tracer with a 1.6 fuel injected engine. I parked the car in front of Autozone in order to change out a broken alternator belt and also replaced the alternator. I never had a starting problem but the car will not start now. I have fuel, spark, and compression. I've replaced the spark plugs and the rotor looks good, the air filter is new, and the oil is fresh with no indication of a problem. Two people helped me try to get it started for several hours but we were all collectively stumped. I have family with me and do not have much money. I would very much appreciate some timely help with this urgent problem. Thank you. ejonas358 at gmail dot com.

Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.

Hi my mazda 323 99 won't start I thought it was the battery but I charged that up and it worked then I thought it could be the fan belt came off but that's not the case. I'm no thinking it


step 1check for spark take off coil lead then unscrew plug pop the plug back into the lead and hold it to the block turn the car over if it sparks then you know there ok
step 2
fuel...
turn on reds on dash the listen out for a buzzing sound this would be fuel pump if no sound fuel pump could be faulty hence why car won't start!

I need a 1998 mazda 323 ba immobiliser bypass key or another solution to start my car. Can anyone help me?


I know this question is old but I recently encountered a similar problem with my 1995 323 BA and this may help someone else. Override the immobilizer by doing the following:


open the car via the drivers door
put the key in the ignition
turn the key to ACC
now turn the key to ON
repeat the last 2 steps X 12 quickly (ignore the indicators flashing and the central locking activating).
the dashboard should be lighting up as normal.
Now turn the key to START

There is a switch in the shifter that turns the reverse lights on when you put it in reverse. This switch is your problem.
