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...

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.

Hi, chances are you have at least one bad battery cable. Check them with an ohm meter. If you have any resistance in your reading, say above 0.02 change your cable. Hope that helps.

Xterra won't start when the battery has juice free of corrosion and starter is freshly installed


Check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminals. Loosen, twist and retighten them. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the black earth cable where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork. A bad earth can cause the symptoms you describe.

A quick check you can do is to connect a jump cable to the battery negative terminal - the earth - and connect the other end of the cable to somewhere suitable on the engine/bodywork.

If the car starts no problem with the jumper cable - it's pointing towards a bad earth/connection somewhere on the battery earth

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.
