04 RX8 won't start??

50 deg o/s temp. Drove the car the day before, with no problems? Tried jumper cables, then a new battery. No bad fuses, plenty of fuel, sitting on a level lot.

    Apperenlty the whole not starting thing is a design flaw on the car. You're supposed to let it warm up completely before shutting the vehicle off. If you just moved the car a few feet, then turned it off, you could have flooded the engine. I'm having mine towed this morning...

Tried 3 new batterys,had alternator checked,had a new serpentine belt installed as per recall notice from Mitsubishi for 08 lancer,had certified techs from Mitsubishi dealer installed new belt car started...


If you know for sure the battery, alternator, and serpentine are OK. then (A) you might need more power to start than your battery can produce. This is not likely because the jump battery does the job. (B) are not really charging because of a bad connection at ground, battery cable, or fuse. You can test this with a volt meter. You might try checking the battery condition just after running by turning on the headlights and see what they do when you try to start. You can check it again a few hours later. (C) Something in the car is draining power. You can check this by (1) disconnecting the ground cable at the battery, (2) charging the battery, (3) connect a test lamp between the the battery cable and the battery. If the test lamp glows, some device is pulling power with the ignition off. Pull fuses one at a time until the test light goes out. (replace the fuses if the light stays on.) Then find the component on the fuse that is grounded and fix it. Look for simple stuff like a wire with bad insultion at one spot or maybe a bad cigar lighter.

Think I need to check the fuse for alternator to battery, can anyone describe it's location? 04 Mercury Monterey


In the bussed electrical center (BEC), check 10A fuse 50. You also might want to check 10A fuse 49 in the BEC. Fuse 49 feeds power to the PCM.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

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.
