    No it is not even turning over. The battery is fine.

    Must be a loose or bad connection to the starter.

If it is turning over when it does not start, may be a fuel pump going bad. Gets hot and stalls out and won\'t start till it cools
down. Must be replaced. Check fuel filter as well. Could also be something as simple as a bad battery, starter or alternator connection... Corrosion is a bummer!

SOURCE: key in mazda mpv stuck in ignition

If you remove the fuse for the flashers, the key will come out. I keep the fuse handy in case I need to use the flashers and I'll just plug it back in!

SOURCE: Engine warning light on Mazda MPV 2002

There seem to be 4 sensors along the way in the air intake and emissions system.

My Check Engine light indicated a bad sensor 1, bank 2 code (I think).

I had my mechanic replace the sensor that was indicated as faulty... cost = $191.

Then the Check Engine light came on again (with a different code), and I had to leave the van with him all day.

Cost to replace and install that sensor = $115.

My advice: if the Check Engine light stays on *AND* your vehicle is riding rough, get it fixed.

Otherwise, put a piece of tape over that Check Engine light and save a couple hundred dollars!

Hope this helps, I do trust my mechanic fully.

I was browsing unsolved problems. If you still have the problem, I'll try to help you. But it's going to be awhile trying to communicate back and forth. First...Check the engine for spark. Take off a plug wire and stick a screw driver in the wire end and place the metal part of the screw driver next to something on the van that's metal. Have someone crank it over for just a second or two and see if a small spark jumps from the screw driver to the metal part. I'll check back for your answer.

Mazda 6 sometimes it will turn over but won't start, leave it fir awhile try again and it will start? Has a new battery cranks good but no go? Then it will fire up and no trouble for days .


Next time it doesn't start, check for power and firing at the coil/s and injectors. Sounds like you may have corrosion at a plug or plugs. Check for codes, even if the light isn't on. Look at the history codes.

Mazda MPV have problems with failing gear shift change assembly ( includes park sensor micro switch)

Pull the fuse for the hazard lights ( 10amp) - if the key comes out, then the switch is defective.

Fix the problem by installing a new change lever assembly - part number for 2000 and 2001 MPV's is LC62-46-10XE with MSRP of $246.90. 2002-2004 would be a LD47-46-10XB with MSRP of $250.40.

Mazda 2001 MPV just serviced. Noticed green


check under the hood and see if you can see where its leaking from might be a hose clamp that you can tighten , if not place cardboard / paper under engine and leave it for a few hours ,return later,any drops will give you an idea of where the leak is. with the engine cold top up the radiator with water only.. do not add antifreeze its only going to leak out again..call the repair shop when they are open..
