Mazda steering does not lock

Car wouldn't start yesterday, starter didn't even click. All electronics worked & all warning lights came on, including check engine light. Noticed the steering wheel didn't lock. This AM it started fine- twice, but steering wheel still doesn't lock when key is removed.

When ever a batter this new goes bad, it is either because it is not being charged, because there is something wrong with the charging system, or there is a constant drain even when the key is off.

To check the latter, with everything off, you remove a battery cable and see if the is any glow from a test light between the post and the cable. If there is, then you have something on that should not be, all the time. Then you pull fuses and disconnect things until it goes off.

To check if the charging system is not working, the easiest way it is to borrow a battery to get it started, (don't jump start a car if you can avoid it, because you can ruin an alternator when it starts, because it will kill itself trying to charge up that bad battery.) With the lights on, rev up the engine. They should get slightly brighter. Of with a volt meter, see it go from 12.5 to 13.5 volts, or so. If it does not go up, then your battery is all that was powering the car, and it won't last long like that.

It sounds like you may have a bad starter or maybe even a bad ignition switch. Then again there is always the possibility that you may just have a bad connection some where. I hope this helps you out.

first most GM OEM systems will need to recognize the key first and foremost ,to do that you will need to roll window down on driver door,turn the key to the run position and with engine NOT running leave the key on for 10 minutes exactly ..then turn ignition off then try to start engine. if original system is working engine should start normally

Townace won't start!!! Help!!!


First thing I would do is make sure the batter cables are secure and tight to the battery post and make sure the red cable is to the + side of the battery and black is on the - side of the battery. They need to be tight and snug in order to put out the amps needed to start the car. YOu can also put a trickle charger on the battery over night at the 2 amp setting and make sure it is charged up. I would guess one of those problems is what is causing you your grief.

Good luck

Disconnecting the battery cable while the vehicle is running is a no no ! The electronic's on your vehicle , you can cause some serious problem's doing that . That was ok on 1960 era vehicles , from 1970 on with all the transistors in the electronic control modules ,you don't want to do that . You may have caused your problem yourself ! http://www.troubleshooters.com/dont_disconnect_battery.htm .Take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

My car will not start... i turn the key and i get one click... i have lights and power.. tried jumping it just in case it was a drained battery but nothing.. don't know what to do next


Try having the seatbelt sensor checked. Just bought 1991 vw jetta yesterday. They Owners said that the car wouldn't start. They had the starter rebuilt, they tried boosting it, but it still didn't start. They finally found out that the seatbelt sensor was bad, and because it is a safety feature it wasn't allowing the car to start. Instead of replacing the sensor they by passed it by cutting the wires that go from the latch down through the door ppanel and twisted them together. The seatbelt still latches it just by passed the senso sor and allow the car to start.
