Even a relativly new battery can develope a bad or dead cell. Does the engine spin over when ignition is attempted? Easiest way to check this is to load test the battery. Any major auto parts dealer( Advance, Autozone, NAPA, Oriellys,etc.) can test this at no charge. Also use a voltmeter to test the alternator output. Most alternators put out between 13.5-13.8 volts at the battery. A faulty alternator can cause the engines electrical system to pull voltage from the battery until it (Battery)gets down to around 10 volts at which time the voltage is to low to support the needs of the system and the vehicle simply cuts off and will not restart as described in the first part of your post. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a current drain on the battery even when switch off. With the ignition off put a ammeter between the negative lead and the negative terminal of the battery and measure the current drain. If detected now remove and reinsert each fuse in turn noting the change in current flow. By this process you will isolate the offending circuit. Interior glove-box or trunk lights can be the very devil since like a fridge light you can never tell if they go off when they should.

It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

Mazda wont start, brand new battery


sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

No power in the car.


For your battery to be three months old, there has to be something causing your battery to loose a charge while parked. Even if your alternator was bad, you would have a warning light in the shape of a "battery" appear on the instrument cluster. There are electricians who specialize in car repair available. They can help you. It could be something simple, like a short in a light switch. Also check your trunk for proper closure. If it is not closed, the light will stay illuminated until the battery dies.
