The car won't even turn over, but all the electronics work fine. When I turn the key to the ON position, the "power loss" light in the dash lights up. Sometimes the car will start fine though.

I tried to start my car this morning. There was no electricity at all and i mean at all, The power locks won't even work nothing. The car won't start, it's perfectly silent when you turn


You would need to use a meter or test light to find out what exactly is dead. It could be a short in the fuse box, or a bad connection in the harness, or at the battery or starter.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.
If nothing on the truck works, you would start at the battery cables and work back to the key switch.

Full Power Loss


I would take a different but not real easy approach---I would reverse the process and remove the new stereo unit and have all wires connected if possible back to the original radio---you may have a ground wire hooked to wrong place etc.

If this happened as a result of replacing the radio back track to see what you have--in over 30 years of repairing electronic equipment whenever a new issue appears instantly after doing something---back up and undo what you did.

Just a suggestion.

Car won't start security light blinks


If the security light is blinking, then the security system is DEFINATELY the reason why your car won't start. The actual cause of the problem is MOST LIKELY a defective ignition switch that is not sending the information from your key to the computer.

Try this:

FIRST try a different key if you have more than one for the vehicle. I have had cars towed into my shop simply because someone was trying to use a cheap duplicate key that was cut at the hardware store. These keys are fine for the doors and trunk. They are great to have around in case you lock your keys in your car. However, they do not have the electronics built into them to allow for engine starting.

If you are using the correct key and a second key also does not work. then...
1. set your parking brake (this will disable your daytime running lamps and conserve battery power.)
2. Connect a battery charger to the vehicle battery if you have one, or see if someone can connect to your battery with jumper cables.
3. Turn the ignition to the START position for about one second. Then release the key to the RUN position. DO NOT turn the ignition OFF.
4. Wait about 10 minutes until the security light quits flashing. Turn the key (without turning it off) to the START position again. The engine should start. If it does not, then you will have to get your car towed in for service.

HINT: you may want to try this a couple times to make sure you are doing it correctly before towing.

If it does start, it is recommended that you have your security system checked for fault codes. I have seen this many times, and it only gets worse and does it more often until this method no longer works to get it started.

After changing the fan belt at a garage, my Mazda 6 would not start. We trried using the extra key remote, but the car still will not start. What is the problem/solution? Is there a special Security...


Hi there,

Your Mazda 6 keys have transponders built in and only the correct key I.D. will activate your vehicle's immobilizer.

I'm at a loss as to how changing a fan belt could have altered your vehicle's immobilizer system - are you absolutely certain the garage hasn't disturbed any of the electronics?

First, we need to establish whether your vehicle's immobilizer still considers your keys as valid.

- Insert Key # 1 and turn ignition to ON (do not start).
Observe the "Security" light in the cluster - it should illuminate, then turn off after approx. 3 seconds. If this works, then Key # 1 is considered still vaild.
- quickly turn Key 1 back to LOCK position and remove key.

Wait 5 seconds...

- Insert Key # 2 and turn ignition to ON (do not start).
Observe the "Security" light in the cluster - it should illuminate, then turn off after approx. 3 seconds. If this works, then Key # 2 is considered still vaild.

Note: if Security light does not behave as above and keys still won't start your car, then your keys are no longer validated by the PCM

If this is the case, then unfortunately unlike other manufacturers, only Mazda will be able to re-program your key's ID into your vehicle's PCM. Contact your local Mazda Dealership to discuss.


Regards,

Scott

This is related to GM's VATS security system. It treats sudden loss of power as an attempt to steal the car. To reset the system, do the following: courtesy of ***** Master ASE Technician

  • Use your key fob (if equipped) or key to unlock the doors.
  • Turn the key to the start position and release it
  • Leave key in the ON position for 10 minutes.(the security light should go out at this time
  • Turn the key to the OFF position for 10 seconds
Repeat this process 2 more times. At the conclusion, your security light should be out and you should be able to start the car.
