If there is no power to the ignition the engine fuse is open. check all fuses in the fusebox normally located under the left dashboard. also check the fusebox beside the engine near the battery.

Mazda mx5 will not start after flat battery battery now charged but soon as turn the ignition on the alarm goes off and will not start

You need to reset the alarm. If it's a Stock/original alarm, read the Owner's Manual or call a Mazda dealer. If it's not stock, you'll need to ID the alarm and look online for the instructions.

If your keyless remote fob has a Mazda label on it and is the ONLY one you have it's probably stock; if it's not a labeled Mazda, look for another name to find the alarm type.

Wont start

I think you're battery has just enough life to turn the engine but not enough to fire it (low voltages tend to mess with the ignition etc)
Stick your battery on a charger (or it might be getting old and need replacing) until you can measure a reasonable 12.5V across the terminals and give it another go. The battery may have been on it's last legs anyway and decided that the punishment was just a bit too much...
I often find I can push start mine if it suffers from a similar act of forgetfulness. I then have to keep my foot on the accelerator for a reasonable period of time to keep the revs up and charge the battery (sometimes it takes a day or so to come completely right again without stalling out at lights etc). The best trick is to take it for a bit of a high-speed burn up some range passes - after it's been flogged for a couple of hours, it'll be much more happy!
Hope this helps, Sherwin
