If the starter motor is close to the exhaust and no heat shield then probably starter is getting to hot to work. I had this problem on mine not a Mazda tho, u can either wrap the exhaust which is what I did or get a heat shield to cover stater motor
check all of your grounds a bad ground or a shorted ground can trigger stuff to go off at random plus if it started right up when you got the car jumped then yea it has to be a bad ground like i said check all of your ground wires and update me with the situation
I have a customer with a 2000 Nissan Xterra 3.3 liter V6 with 180k miles. He stated that while driving on the highway the vehicle is fine. Once he exits the highway and drove on surface streets the engine stumbles, sputters and shuts down when he stops. The fuel pump is located under the right side rear seat. I removed the inspection cover to view the electrical connections. No problem there. I drove the vehicle for approx 20 minutes and it hesitated a little but not enough for me to come to a good conclusion. I needed the engine to heat up some more so I drove to Panda Express for lunch. I got my lunch to go, return to the vehicle and started the engine to eat while the engine idled. After my lunch was over I drove back to my customer's house. On the way God bless me with what I was searching for...the engine started to sputter. To shorten this story I replaced the distributor with a brand new assembly from AutoZone($233.65). Once I removed the factory distributor I spun it by hand and that's when I could feel that bearings were rough & worn.
Problem solved and my customer is happy.
Perhaps this is a safety mechanism in your car. Once it gets to a certain temperature, it shuts itself off. There are alot of cars out there that once they overheat, and turn the car back on, it won't turn over.
Temp control sensor, sounds like, Check the sensor and see if its wide open, it should shut the curcuit once its heated.
Good way to test is set the OHM metre resistance, Shouldnt have a reading when its cold and if does move than its stuck open and should be replaced, And if has no resistance and shuts off when heat applied to it see if it shuts of at a certain temp.
