Question about Mazda Protege

1 Answer

Hey this is great! Perhaps someone can help me solve my ignition problem. Seems when I turn the key, I need to HOLD the key in the start position for about ten-fifteen seconds before she'll catch and start. No sound what so ever, just wait, sometimes even longer to see if she'll catch. The thing is once she catches and starts, I need to wait until the engine is cold before I experience the same problem again. Thus far the shop has replaced the starter motor, completely removed the remote start and various other checks. Still a problem!!

    This sounds like a fuel pump problem, check the pressure when it happens, could also re related to bad run circuit contacts in the switch

Ignition switch on hyundai sonata 2006


Do you hear a click when operating the key ? if not I would suggest perhaps it is the starter solenoid not making contact and powering up the starter, the quick check is to employ the help of a friend, locate the starter ( make sure the car is out of gear or in park ) get your helper to hold the key in the start position and you tap the starter with a hammer or the like, if the engine bursts into life it's the starter, if not the chances are it's the switch, Be careful when doing this and be sure to keep clear of the fan an pulleys.

1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition

7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).
