Question about 2000 Mazda MPV
I just put in a transmission and now it wont start. Every time I put the battery terminal on, it blows the main fuse.
You have a dead short eather a pinched posative wire or you have a negative wire or a bracket toutching a posative hook up the neg. cable take a test light hook one end to the batt. the other end to the cable if shorted light will light start unpluging plugs and wiggleing wires till the light gos off and that should point you to the cause, make shore all lights and egnishion switch are off underhood light also.

They may not need to be replaced but they need to be repaired. Somewhere under there in that wire harness you have a power wire that has a bare spot chafed in the insulation. You'll have to unwrap that bundle, the one you jiggle, and check each wire carefully for a bare spot. Start with any wire that is red,pink, orange; those are the normal power wire colors, but don't stop if you find one. There could be more than one. Just tape over the bare spots, you don't necessarily need to replace them. If the wire harness has beeen rubbing on a piece of the car try to reposition it so this doesn't happen again. Zip ties work good for this. Hope this helps.

see the schematic:the + RED cable must be in+ and Black cable in -minus.
test after you did the correct polarities, see if the solenoid or starter motor are in SHORT circuit. disconnect each wire step from step until you isolate the short.
God bless you
