No, if the belt is on the power steering pump, and it is turning. If it is low on fluid, it should whine. it has nothing to do with the battery connection.

SOURCE: mazda cx-7 2008 left headlight stopped working,

check the wiring from the headlight. You want to find the ground wire which is usually a black wire thats secured to some metal part of the car. Basically just check that all your wires are in tact and tightly secured. A bad ground is a very common electrical problem.

My mazda is set on the sign of the steering wheel with the! Q IS LIKE TO KNOW PLEASE HELP ME

Power stearing rx 8 2004 You need cleaning the two gray plugs below canister air filter. One plug have 2 power cables and other plug have four or five cable. You need electric contact cleaner and cleaning both plug terminal pins Verify the contact must be very clean. The more important is the hose for drainage from the coolant bottle. This is the principal cause of throuble. This is a short hose for drainage. When the car is hot, the hose drainage vapor and drops coolant. This vapor and coolant impact the gray plug and the cable is hot. This causes shutdown of the power steering. change the hose to a longer one so it wont drop fluid on to electrical harness. For finish remove the negative battery cable for reset the electrical system. cleaning the main fuse of power stearing on positive pole of battery. Check the contact this needs to be very clean. check the pole of battery. cleaning both poles if necessary change battery connection. Hope this resolves the problem if not please take it to a qualified technician as you dont want to mess around with steering or brakes for that matter.

Why won't my Mazda mx6 not start?

If you connected the battery cables to the wrong posts, you may have fried a maxi fuse, or the computer.
I would start with testing the major fuses.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929

Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is dismantling. Regards John

My horn and cruise control set stopped working,could this be a fuse problem?

Yes but they don't have to be related. the horn fuse may not be the problem as the contorls that work the cruise and the horn are both in the steering wheel. Is the airbag light on too? The steering wheel has a connection called a clockspring. thats a coil of ribbon tape tha t takes up the turning of the wheel and still be connected. If this is the problem a mechanic with steering collum skills needs to be employed so the repairs are done correctly and safty. This is'nt a do it yourself job.

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?

My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

1990 Mazda miata will not start

check that there is a good connection from the earth to body (a lot of electrical problems are earth related) also that the connections on the battery are firm. check that the battery has good voltage.

PLEASE HELP!! NOTHING works at all, but the head lights!!!

You have lost your main breaker--there is a fuse bank beside the battery and the main(black one) is held in place with 10mm bolts--pull back the cover and all will be evident. This fuse is the first thing to go when you reverse polarity--headlights are straight thru battery and will be all that's powered. Replace the main breaker!
