Question about 1996 Mazda 626
We let teh gas get low; the fuel light came on. The next morning, when we went to start the car, it wouldn't start. The battery is working, as is the starter. The plugs are good.
We've tried the troubleshooting of using a starter fluid. Also, we followed the books suggestion of holding the accelerator while we start it. Nothing is working.
The car is a manual transmission with a fuel injector. Thank you!
Sounds like a similar problem I had. I had a bad battery. Jumping the car and charger did not help. All instruments work as I am guessing the battery had enough juice to light those but not enough to start car. Either bad battery or alternator. I changed out the battery and everything was fine. If you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, make sure they are setup right. The amp may be drawing power even if radio and car is off which may attribute to low start power (including above suggestions).

02 sensor or a list of other things. Have a tech hook it up to a testing unit and see what code it gives off.
