Question about 2000 Mazda MPV
My 2000 Mazda MPV-DX 2.5-L V6 won't start, wouldn't even crank, it would just click under the hood. Battery was fully charged. So I pulled the starter & solenoid took them to a local parts place where they tested them on their machine and told me they were fine & good to go.
I put them back in the Mazda & it still would not start. I bought & replaced the ignition switch & the main relay. It started & ran well. I started it numerous times w/o problem but did not move or drive it. The next morning it again would not start(Would not crank the engine over it would only click under the hood. I have a fully charged battery in the car. At the starter solenoid I have two large bolt-on electrical connections & one smaller slip-on blade connection. One of the large connections reads battery current(Whatever the battery is charged to
it matches) per my VOM. The other large connection has no voltage
running to it key-on or key-off. The smaller blade connector has no voltage running to it key-on or key-off. If I jump between the Large-Hot connection & the small blade connection I get lots of spark & a loud click but it won't turn over the engine. Is the starter bad possibly intermittent?????
Yes it could be the starter next time it won't start give the starter motor a tap with a hammer or wheel brace also check where the small blade connector is there should be a fuse in line could be the problem hope this helps regards Jim
