Question about 1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Open Question

Miata fuse box - 80a now welded into the fuse block - HELP!

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.

Where is the starter fuse and relay on 1990 Mazda Miata?

I think they're both in the same box as the main 80A fuse. I replaced my main fuse a while ago and while doing it caused a brief short, spark flew. But I got lucky because after replacing it everything worked.
Get a Haynes service manual, it will help.

I need the correct timing marks for a 96 miata 1.8

The E mark on the left camshaft pulley should line up with the E mark on the camshaft cover. The I mark on the right camshaft pulley should line up with the I mark on the head. There is also a notch on the top of the bottom pulley that needs to line up with the cast pointer above this pulley. I like to mark stuff when I am taking it apart with white paint, it is easy to see when putting stuff back together. The has some help on this.

1991 Miata Help! Won't start, nothing at all on key turn, STILL after battery replacement. Help!

The main fuse blew. Look in your fuse box for a big fuse it should be labeled main or master fuse. Replace this fuse and vehicle should work everything but maybe the starting issues. You have a short somewhere. If the fuse blows again or the car won't start repost the problem

90 miata lights

> Any suggestions or reference to free wiring diagram downloads??

It doesn't seem likely since most of that kind of material is copyrighted works. I think they would take offense to putting it on the web.

You might get some help (or even emailed diagrams) from a fellow owner.

Good luck-
