Question about 2000 Mazda Protege
I have a problem with the electrics, i believe, every so ofthe the ignition just shuts off while driving, some times straight back, back fire and ok, most times have to put in ton N and key start whilst rolling, starts ok, i have changed the ignition switch as the key was a bit sloppy, but problem persists
Similar problem on 96 Protege. Engine, speedo, tach die, then will restart. Replaced ground cable on battery, cleaned terminal on battery and bolted cable to new ground on firewall. Fixed problem.

Hi, Check connections on starter. Could be a bad solenoid on the starter.
Also check fuses and relays under dash. Good luck.

Easiest test is to reconnect jumper cables and switch lights on, if these work and no noise AT ALL from starter, NO clicking at all then could be the jumper cables are too light like most are. Try 2 sets of jumper cables. Ensure that the cables are correclty applied, Red to Red and the black is the last connection to a good steel part on your engine, NOT the battery.Always ensure the car being used to jump from is running at all times while cables are connected.When it starts remove this one FIRST also.

Symptoms are indicative of a partially broken wire somewhere, the cold increases the resistance in the wires and if they aren't working at 100% to start with, will cause your problem. I think you are on the right track, I would replace any high tension parts not already new then start looking for wires showing a high resistance. Check and clean ( with contact cleaner aerosol ) any and all electrical plugs in your ignition system. I would try drying out your computer and packing around it with silica gel to keep it dry.
