Question about 2007 Mazda B Series
Had new injectors fitted, then drove 1800 miles. Now being told that i need new injectors again. Original dealer is no longer trading so i can't nor would i want them to touch the car again. Being told that i need injectos & fuel pump this time. Car refuses to start using the key but will start if towed, but then cuts out after about 30 mins driving, then needs tow starting again.

I have never personally seen the scenario you have described, but it would take severe overcharging OR a very strong voltage spike to blow your computer, so they are on the right track...
As far as the money goes, you should only have had to pay for the first replacement if the work was done by a reputable shop... Did the first repair not come with some sort of warranty? I would strongly suggest that the Ford shop that gave up be asked to either cover the subsequent repairs OR refund what you spent on their NON-repair. You might need to be a little tenacious in your approach on this, and if you are denied at one level, ask to speak to their superiors. If you are persistent, calm, and reasonable, I'm sure you will receive some type of accomodation!
Sorry for your troubles, but hang tough... I'll send a copy of your complaint and my answer to New Bern Mazda for you, and also to Mazda USA. And please don't forget to rate my support: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for providing this assistance!

SOURCE: Need to tow 04 mazda rx 8
Top left and right corners of the front grill pull away to reveal the fixing holes. Make sure you WD40 the threads as Mazda coat the threads with paint. insert towing eyes and turn slowly unscrew and screw a bit at a time as you have a good chance of cross threading if you don't. Keep lubricating as you go. Make sure you take the plastic inserts off completely before towing as you will loose them when towing. replace when completed towing. Good luck and hope what ever the reason for towing it is not serious.

This model uses an engine immobilizer as part of the anti-theft. You could leave the wrong key in the ignition for days, with no success. The key has an electronic resistor built into it that the car's ignition will read. Even if the key is cut correctly, if the chip inside doesn't transmit the right signal, the car will not, under any condition, start............
GM's PASS-KEY System, such as those used on a Chevrolet, allows for any key that was cut to fit the ignition, but did not transmit the right code, to start the car after 17 minutes delay. The idea was that a thief would not want to wait around very long. Your mom's Mazda is more demanding, and therefore, more secure. Please review section 3, pages 20 through 22 of the owners manual. I've posted the link to a digital copy of it below this message. Do consult with your selling dealer, because this rarely happens on next-to-new cars. They should replace her keys and reprogram the immobilizer for free. It should definitely be covered under warranty, especially since she's only driven it such few times.
Hope this Helps!
