Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
Always replace the starter as a unit. The brushes are usually bad as well as the solenoid. Replacing as a unit is cost effective and will reduce labor.

It sounds like it could also be the connection-check the wires going to it and the ground wire on the battery itself.

Have you tried moving shifter slowly through all gears, especially neutral when trying to start ? Sometimes safety neutral switch will become faulty & some movement of shifter may make it turn over.

The starter is found in between the transmission and the block. If I recall my Mazda's correctly it is located on the side near the firewall. It is mostly cylindrical with wires coming from it.

It sounds like the small tickler wires may be reversed to the Solenoid.
If no success, call Itasca and ask if there were any changes for this Solenoid. There are several types of Solenoid with the grounding being the major internal difference. Most likely your wires are switched.
