Question about 1991 Mazda Protege
Have you replaced your battery yet? Sounds like you have a bad cell in your battery basically your battery is not holding a charge. It sounds pretty bad too because typically the alternator will keep it somewhat going while you are driving. When you put you're lights on its drawing a higher load on the battery and killing it. Does not sound like an "arc" of any type. I think you mean a short to power. That could be a possibility especially if you run through alot of batteries on that car. Normally like one every 4 years or so, give or take would be normal. Before you go running chasing short to grounds, check your batt terminals and corrosion on the power and ground wires.

sounds like the starter, i dont think its siezed the motor in that short distance. try and hit the starter with a hammer or something with someone turning the key at the same time, it should start with acouple trys. if it does than u need a new starter.

Doubtful, my guess would be fried. Does the unit get power?
Check the fuses, especially the one for car stereo. If that's not blown you'll need to put the head unit and check the fuse either on the 12V power wire or on the wiring harness or on the back of the actual unit.
I've seen that same thing done several times and usually the damage is more drastic, consider yourself lucky.
