SOURCE: 98 mazda 626..starts then shakes and then shuts off

A few things could be causing this problem:

  1. Vibration when running is an indication that one or more spark plugs are fouled or missing
  2. Cracked/worn distributor cap
  3. On all models except the Millenia, the fuel filter is attached to a bracket located in the left rear of the engine compartment, next to or beneath the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir
I hope this answered your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: '05 mazda 6 will not start with new battery

I have an 06 Mazda 6 that has had starter problems since new. On servicing I have told them of the problem but it never happens when they have it, this has been ongoing for 3 years since new. They told me the battery was weak but I insisted that it's happened since new so why would that be the problem unless I've had a weak battery for 3 years. Then on my last service they couldnt' start it so replaced the starter motor under warranty. The car started fine for a few weeks but now is not starting again. I have also found that this generally only occurs in hot weather or when I have re-started the car numerous times in a short period of time.
Not really a solution but FYI for other Mazda 6 owners.

SOURCE: First: alarm went off on its own.(mazda 6 2003).

there is often a small back up battery in the immobiliser unit itself, if you can locate this unit and replace the battery with the ignition on / engine running, then it should not need recoding and work fine after that. The other thing that could be wrong is the key battery (if the fob has one) or the transponder chip in the key head. If the key signal is low the immobiliser lamp will light during driving, but this does not explain the alarm going off. That is more likely either a poor vehicle battery, alarm / immobiliser back up battery, or another electrical fault such as water leakage into a tail-light or even the alarm unit itself when it rains. A lot of alarms are voltage sensing and when the vehicle is parked they will alarm if the battery voltage changes for any reason, though not during driving so the battery in the immob is my first choice to look at.

Initial indicator is the battery light comes on at the dash. When mine went, I got about 2 days warning (with me resetting the computer every time I started the car) Then, driving in the dark, everything shut down (except headlights) wouldn't accellerate, or manual shift at all while driving at all.

Try to rev the engine while at neutral if you get the same vibration to pinpoint if its from the engine or the drive shafts. If the issue occurs at a certain rev it may likely be the variable valve unit. Check if possible if you can get errors from the computer.

Hi my Mazda 3 won't start in park if I put it in nuteral then it will start. Thanks for your help.

its called a neutral safety switch. it makes sure your car starts in park or neutral, but not in drive/reverse/low

use the repair manual of your choice and replace it yourself, or the easy option, get it done.

Make sure connection for thick red wire going to starter is good if you had that much corrosion.
