SOURCE: mazda 626 - engine do not start
have you tried jumping the engine directly? It wont fix your problem permanently but might get the car started and give you a better idea of what is wrong. connect the negative cable to the engine block and the positive to the battery, good luck hope this helps

SOURCE: 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

I am not a Mazda user but I will try to help you with some advice.Since you have not mentioned the mileage on the car I am just going to assume that it is below 50000miles.
Now since you are the second owner and has noticed that the oil pressure indication can be the reason the engine has packed out, then with the available records you can file a compaint stating that you have not received the performance Mazda seems to advertise . Also the record of your vehicle is intact , it was never tampered by anyone but only by Mazda dealership and that you are dissatisfied .
The local delear who was attendiing the car during this period is the one who has to file to the warranty dept. of Mazda for availing a special claim as the car is more than 6 years Old. Hence the legal rights may not be ggood enough unless you get the warranty dept. to have a personal regard.
When there is a official recall for a manufacturing fault then there is a time limit for the recall and the customer must get this done in the said period. So if the first owner was not aware then sometimes the management may not respond.
Also since you are the second owner is also a negative to our claim.
What at least you can ask for will be to get the engine done up at their dealership service free of cost considering that you are a MAZDA FAVOURITE.
Please have a mail sent to the Warranty dept with copy to the marketing manager/area sales, the local dealer and to the head office. Call them after a day and follow it up with careful words so as the management will respond well to a good customer... specially in such trying times of marketing.
I hope you case will be heard and allowed.
