Question about 1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata
96 Miata was on trickle charger during winter so wanted to start several times (on/off) so oil would get to upper end & not starting dry. I started then off then on again & heard a loud bang like gun or backfire. 3 battery cell covers were blown out & acid sprayed around trunk. The 80a fuse is now welded into the holder & car won't start. Funny that the fuse link is not open. Tried pulling fuse with pliers but just breaking plastic of fuse which won't even wiggle. How do you get the fuse out & what is next thing to check? Thanks. PEL

Batteries can have a dead cell in them, meaning there is sufficient charge to run accessories and the "check glass" may look fine (dark green in color on maintenance free batteries), but one dead cell in the battery indicates replacement time.

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.
