My new (used) 2001 Millenia S did a weird thing two days in a row.
Yesterday I turned the ignition key and the engine wouldn't crank.
Flipping through the manual, I read that the security system will cut
off the engine. I tried to undo the "security" by locking and unlocking,
and after several tries I got the starter to crank, and the engine
started like it's supposed to. This morning - same problem. Couldn't
start the car in the morning, or several hours later. Then in the
afternoon it fired right up, so I took it to the dealer without shutting
off the engine. Of course, it wouldn't repeat the problem there.
I wonder if anyone has had a similar issue, and knows what it might be
because the starting problem seems like one of those that may be
difficult to replicate in the service shop. The car is under warranty
and they're keeping it overnight, but in case they don't have any clues,
I'm looking for ideas here.
1998 mazda millenia was running fine and just shut down. Have not been able to start since. Checked fuel and am getting gas. checked ign and did not get a spark when checking the spark to the spark plug.cahnaged the crankshaft sensor, still will not start. Any ideas. Can't find in the repair manual if there is a coil. sort of eludes that it may be built into the distributer, but not sure. everytime i think I'm close the repair manual says except millenia. HELP

Don't laugh...but have you a) turned the volume right down. b) hit the 'mute' tab. c) tuned to a channel d) made sure antenna is up ? now it gets interesting e) checked the amp fuse inside the device f) checked the connectors from the speakers.......now the good bit.... wiggle the ignition key gently while engine running also gently pushing key in further.... it happened to my standard original 2001 lim ed still does, the wires cross inside . when engine on and radio going, it cuts out, sometimes just the display, sometimes whole thing blanks out.. comes back on when I tap key in. weird but true. sounds like amp fuse blown (right inside radio itself) Red
For sure you will need new starter (actually starter relay) (that is why there is no engine turn-over). I am not sure about ignition coil and alternator, well it depends. You can get them at Autozone.com
And in a worsest scenario electronic control module (ECM/ECU).
You can buy used here http://www.sunfor.com/ecm_ecu.html
Below there is the electrical starting system scheme for your car.
You can get it on Autozone.com (just add new vehicle Masda 1998 Millienia and go to repair guide engine electrical starting system)
Hope that helps
P.S. Please kindly let me know if you need more info. I am here to help.
P.P.S. I would check with insurance they might cover the case
its the tilt thing, you have to have it replaced for $200, or go to a mechanic and have him adjust it the level you want and let him deactivate the tilt from electricity. Best thing I ended up with my millenia :)
what you are describing is a slow start. Start your vehicle and remove the positive battery cable. if the truck dies than change your alternator. your alternator may be going bad not allowing the battery to keep a charge through the night.
If it is good than remove your starter and have it tested. any auto parts store can test it.
i am having the same problem, thought it was ful pump, no go, I heard they had problms with the fuse box and wiring harness, my mechanic messed with mine a few days ago and it has not did it since, but I am looking at changing that. GL
I just had the same problem. It's related to the factory installed
security system. Something about a glitch in the software.
Turn your ignition switch on, watch the "blinking" security light
until it goes off. (takes about 10 min) Turn your ignition off. Wait about a minute.
Start your engine. It works.
