    The car cranks but not start. I can start again if waiting for half hour or more. Then when I drive for a while, the car will die again. All the check lights will be on. Does that signal anything? Thanks.

That sounds like a fuel problem. I would get a fuel pressure test. If it's weak or weaker then specs replace the fuel filter. If it still has trouble you might need a new fuel pump. Hope this helps.

It can be a number of things. From the info you stated you say car wont start, does this mean starter wont turn over or does this mean car turns over but wont start. If starter wont work then replace starter, solenoid could be getting weak causing it to stick open and this will cause starter to heat up and stick, then it cools and works. If car turns over but wont start sound like a vapor lock problem with fuel line, you have and area where the fuel line is in contact with something that is heating it up causing vapor look, when it cools engine starts. Check all areas where fuel line is and pull away from any hot areas, this could be as small as line resting on engine or to close to manifold.

1999 Mazda 626 will not start after been driven for a while. Let it stand a while it will start up with no problems. Drive for a few weeks and again it happens. This has been going on for a year now a

First I would check for any 'codes'. You say "it will not start"....does this mean that the engine will turn over and not run, or you turn the key and nothing happens? Really need more information.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626, I was driving and the car just shut down, The engine turns but won't start.

Seems like you lost fuel pressure. Have the fuel pump checked and see how many pounds you have at the motor.

I have a mazda 626 it will turn over but it won't

If the timing belt or chain is broken, or if there is no oil pressure, the car will not start to protect the engine from damage. Check these two items.

I have a 99 Mazda 626 that just quits running when you are driving down the road. Today it quit and I waited about 20 minutes and it started right up. Anyone know what could be causing this?

Try replacing the ignition switch underneath the steering collar. Pop of the top then the bottom you need a screw driver or ratchet cant remember. Its very easy to replace. I suggest buying a repair manual to see what it looks like. Very small part smaller then your hand. The part cost 100 or less with life time warranty. DO NOT BUY IT FROM THE MAZDA DEALER. They warranty their part for only 9 months? Or 30k miles.

If it starts to putter or not stay on and turn off like you describe it maybe the switch. When you install it first it may shudder or have a high rpm. I think it does this because the main computer is trying to adjust. You may have to turn it off 5 or six times or drive around the block a few times to get it to adjust. I have replaced mine twice already since I have hit 234,000k miles on it. It does burn out and my car at times will not start or turn and try to turn of while I’m driving and stop at a light with low rpms.
