SOURCE: Mazda 2005 RX-8 wont start... ran yesterday, lights on & sounds

I have a 2004 that had the same problem. It sounds like the engine might be flooded. The best thing to do is to remove the fuse to the fuel pump. It will be listed under the fuse cover under the hood. Mine was a 20 amp but check to be sure. With the fuse removed, crank the engine for a minute to remove any fuel flooding the engine. Replace the fuse and crank the engine in 10 second intervals without touching the gas or you will reflood the engine. This process can sometimes take awhile and will drain your battery, so have it connected to an additional power source ( i.e. another car battery or jump box). When the car finally cranks over there will be a huge cloud of smoke so don't be alarmed when it happens. Lastly some words to the wise. This process CAN ruin your starter, but is essentially the same process that the dealership will you except that they will remove the spark plugs to drain the fuel and then charge you for new ones. If this process doesn't work then you probably need new spark plugs which is going to cost quite a bit. I was quoted upwards of $525 to fix this problem until I talked to a Mazda mechanic and found out how to do this myself. Just make sure that the engine is up to running temperature before turning the car off and you shouldn't encounter this problem again. I hope this helps you, and remember that if all else fails the dealer can fix it. It won't be cheap, but they will get it done.

I almost forgot, you HAVE to get the oil changed as soon as possible because there is probably gas in the oil now.

SOURCE: 2005 BMW X 3 service interval reset

Hi geonkm, if you look on the instrument clusteryou will see 2 buttons in the lower centre part of the dash, make sure the ignition is swiched off, press and hold the left button and turn the ignition on to the first position keep holding the button down until you see the display change, then lift you finger and press and hold again untill reset appears ( normally after aprox 5 seconds ) it will also flash, once this happens lift your finger again then press and release straight away, this should reset the service indicator. regards mark ps you may want to print this off prior to trying to reset to make it easier to follow, good luck

Sounds like you need a starter, or you have a loose wire somewhere under the hood.

Bmw not starting


some amount of detail there!!!... you looking for the miracle faries to help you??...
lights on dash? symbols... when go to red lights (pre ignition) are all lights on?... make life easy on yourself and give more detail.
if lights working on dash and it physically cranks turns over....my first port of call is to pull plug one by one off the spark plugs and check for a spark... I use a screwdriver and shove it up the leed where the plug goes and let it to earth when cranking and you should have a spark at each....if not theres the problem...coil pack... hows that answer for you I hope it gets you started

My 1984 bmw 325e DASH BOARD LIGHTS dont work


Check a couple things:

1. Verify that the dimmer switch for the dash lights isn't in the full dim position (it turns off the dash lights).

2. Check your fuse panel (in the engine compartment) for a blown fuse.

Engine wont turn over even though all dash lights work when key on.


This is the classic symptom of a bad battery. Your engine requires a lot of power to crank but the little lights in your dash require very little. if the battery is even a little drained it won't crank the engine, but everything else will seem to work fine. Either jumpstart the car (if it starts, then you likely need a new battery) or test the voltage at the battery terminal when trying to start the car. If the voltage drops below 12 volts you need a new battery (or at least a freshly charged one)

I have a bmw 330 ci, i forgot to turn the head lights off, 2 hrs later the lights were on and i could not crank and did not hear no sounds. i have good power, all dash and head lamps work, will not start


the battery is most likely too low to start the engine as the starter motor needs a lot more power than the lights to operate, you will need to charge the battery.......hope this helps......cheers.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.
