Radio don't use as much voltages (AMPS) as the starter motor. remove battery and charge up. remember radio is coded so you will need to put the code in after. negative lead first off the battery.also have ignition turned to number 2 then turn off and you have 30 seconds to remove the battery. if not battery starter motor solenoid has failed and a new motor is needed. check battery first.

SOURCE: Mazda 2005 RX-8 wont start... ran yesterday, lights on & sounds

I have a 2004 that had the same problem. It sounds like the engine might be flooded. The best thing to do is to remove the fuse to the fuel pump. It will be listed under the fuse cover under the hood. Mine was a 20 amp but check to be sure. With the fuse removed, crank the engine for a minute to remove any fuel flooding the engine. Replace the fuse and crank the engine in 10 second intervals without touching the gas or you will reflood the engine. This process can sometimes take awhile and will drain your battery, so have it connected to an additional power source ( i.e. another car battery or jump box). When the car finally cranks over there will be a huge cloud of smoke so don't be alarmed when it happens. Lastly some words to the wise. This process CAN ruin your starter, but is essentially the same process that the dealership will you except that they will remove the spark plugs to drain the fuel and then charge you for new ones. If this process doesn't work then you probably need new spark plugs which is going to cost quite a bit. I was quoted upwards of $525 to fix this problem until I talked to a Mazda mechanic and found out how to do this myself. Just make sure that the engine is up to running temperature before turning the car off and you shouldn't encounter this problem again. I hope this helps you, and remember that if all else fails the dealer can fix it. It won't be cheap, but they will get it done.

I almost forgot, you HAVE to get the oil changed as soon as possible because there is probably gas in the oil now.

SOURCE: Mazda Tribute Intermittent Starting problem

I can think of 2 possibles,it could be a bad battery cable or an intermitent short in the starter solenoid, check or have the battery cables and there connections on both ends first not only are they a cheaper fix but the problem you describe sounds like a current flow issue.Test them with or have them tested with an ohmmeter they should show o ohms resistance,and while not attributed to the problem I do not reccomend using Bosch spark plugs of any variety,the best plugs for any Japanese vehicle are NGK's,this comes from my personal experience with them and other techs that I have worked with.

SOURCE: starter clicks but does not turn over

typically, this is indicative of a worn out starter. inside the starter there is a coil that pushes the drive gear into the flywheel (this is what makes the click) and then there is a motor that turns the drive gear. The armature bushings of the motor are likely worn, and having difficulty making continuity. (sometimes lightly tapping the back end of the starter with a hammer will get it to work). ultimately, the starter has to be replaced. best of luck

I Ask a Mechanic to change Starter and now most light are dead.


i would say check all the fuses again, both in passenger compartment and under the hood. plus, the mechanic should be responsible for this issue. it also sounds like you battery is not fully charged. i would also suspect, the starter was changed without disconnecting the battery and something was shorted as he installed the starter. good luck

93 mazda mpv v-6 wont turn over


Well, maybe. When you modified the original fuse you could have provided a way for the short to get much worse. LIke putting a penny in an old fuse box on a house. The penny has to get super hot to melt compared to the original fuse. Or it could make the connection that was overheating fail competely. Fuses melt when there is too much current in a circuit. Which can be a short to ground or a weak connection. A weak connection will carry current, but with much resistance which causes heat.
You'll have to take a meter or test light and start at the battery cables and work back to the fuse box, including the ground side. Also make sure the actual battery cables are clean and tight.

Turn key wont crank


Possible issues: too many to list

Do you hear a clicking sound when you turn the key to "START"? If so, I'd say your battery is dead.

Do any of your gauge lights, head lights, radio, etc. work just fine? If so, I'd guess you have a bad ignition, bad coil, or bad starter.

Likely issues:
Dead battery
Bad coil
Bad ignition switch
Bad starter

This is an indication that you have a bad or loose connection at the battery. Check the cable ends on the battery and clean them of any green looking stuff. Make sure all connection are tight at the battery.

Started my mazda 6 this morning. Was a little sluggish but started. Went out 10 minutes later to move it and it wont start. Only clicking noise when trying to start


battery is dead. possibly the alternator isn't charging too. once the car is running if the battery light is on the alternator needs to be changed. if that's the case stick with a mazda part not a rebuilt.

Only makes a clicking noise and wont start


First, remove the battery terminals and clean them. Check that the ground wire on the block is tight and clean and the wire at the starter is also good. If you have 12v at the main starter cable and12v at the smaller (trigger) wire next to it with the key turned to the "start" position, it's likely the starter is bad (providing you can turn the engine by hand with key switch off) Make sure that the battery has 12v before starting diagnosis...radio etc. draw far less than the starter does. Even if relatively new, if the charging system isn't working, it will draw down the battery in less than an hour while driving..
