Hi Santino, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Santino, are you saying when you turn the key to the start position it does nothing meaning its completely dead. OR are you saying when you turn the key to the start position the engine turns over but it will not start and run. If it does nothing then there could be a problem with the KEY Itself or could be the starter relay. Check at the starter relay to see if your getting power from the ignition switch when its turned to the start position. If you don't have power there it could be the ignition switch. But, if you do have power there then you need to see if your getting power from the relay to the starter. Reinstall the relay and have someone turn the key to the start position while you check for power on the small wire going to the starter. I'm stopping here until I know which problem your facing. For further assistance go to my website and answer the question I ask. Have an awesome day Santino. Auto Repair

1991 Mazda Protege: When key is turned, engine will not always turn-on, I keep turning key until the engine turns on. What causes this?

Does it chug chug chug for a while before it start or is it dead silent. Could be anything from a bad starter solenoid, weak battery to a clogged fuel filter. Need some more detail to help troubleshoot more.

I have a 2002 Mazda Protege 5 with a manual transmission. It has about 78K miles on it. I normally onlyl drive it around town (20 miles a day). After I have driven a long distance (3 hour drive), the next...

Check you battery & cables. If top of cables & battery post are green or white. Mix water and baking soda or a coke and pour on the post. Rinse it off if it's was real bad you may need new cables. Sometime you need to remove the cables to clean. Always remove Neg - 1st then you can remove Pos + replace the Pos+ 1st. Should be a 10 mm wrench have a 8mm & a 1/2 in ready just in case. Use safety glasses.
Get a jump start or charge battery. It is likely you have a dead cell in your battery & will need to replace it. Work safe
