Question about 1992 Mazda 323

2 Answers

I cant turn my car off!

I couldn't start my car today (Mazda AZ-1 which isn't listed as a valid product :( ), when I turned it over it just made a tickticktick sound, which I figured was a dead battery. So I bump started it and it ran without issue. I went for a drive 10-15 mins ish. When I got home I turned the key off and pulled it out but the car kept running... Took me a bit to get the car to turn off, what I had to do was turn the key off and pull the ignition fuse (small 15a fuse under the dash) before it would turn off. Any idea what I should do to fix this or anyone have a wiring diagram available?

Sounds like you may have shorted or gotten a hot spot in your ignition switch.

1987 mazda bseries pickup wont start in the cold but will turn over. it has fuel and spark but it wont start even with the starter fluid. i have checked antifreeze oil and the connection to everything


what is the temp you are at ? -1-20 check the fuel line is feeding fuel. you may need to take the pipe off and use a syringe plunger see if the fuel can fun free. they put water in fuel ( fuel don't freeze but the water does) and this can freezes and not get through the filter. ice blocks it up. failing that try some easy start. or leave the engine over night with a few blankets over the engine . stops the engine freezing over. some nice thick one's this may help.

After changing the fan belt at a garage, my Mazda 6 would not start. We trried using the extra key remote, but the car still will not start. What is the problem/solution? Is there a special Security...


Hi there,

Your Mazda 6 keys have transponders built in and only the correct key I.D. will activate your vehicle's immobilizer.

I'm at a loss as to how changing a fan belt could have altered your vehicle's immobilizer system - are you absolutely certain the garage hasn't disturbed any of the electronics?

First, we need to establish whether your vehicle's immobilizer still considers your keys as valid.

- Insert Key # 1 and turn ignition to ON (do not start).
Observe the "Security" light in the cluster - it should illuminate, then turn off after approx. 3 seconds. If this works, then Key # 1 is considered still vaild.
- quickly turn Key 1 back to LOCK position and remove key.

Wait 5 seconds...

- Insert Key # 2 and turn ignition to ON (do not start).
Observe the "Security" light in the cluster - it should illuminate, then turn off after approx. 3 seconds. If this works, then Key # 2 is considered still vaild.

Note: if Security light does not behave as above and keys still won't start your car, then your keys are no longer validated by the PCM

If this is the case, then unfortunately unlike other manufacturers, only Mazda will be able to re-program your key's ID into your vehicle's PCM. Contact your local Mazda Dealership to discuss.


Regards,

Scott

96 mazda mpv minivan 165k mi. Ran fine until one day just died.Had towed home.3 mech.tried diagnose gave up wouldn't start-turns over-no start. Last mech.replaced timing belt&idle pulley. Still no...


I was browsing unsolved problems. If you still have the problem, I'll try to help you. But it's going to be awhile trying to communicate back and forth. First...Check the engine for spark. Take off a plug wire and stick a screw driver in the wire end and place the metal part of the screw driver next to something on the van that's metal. Have someone crank it over for just a second or two and see if a small spark jumps from the screw driver to the metal part. I'll check back for your answer.

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.

Engine rotates but will not start. I have spark and can hear the fuel pump relay click, but I don't know if the fuel pump is working. T in Georgia


the only method that work was pulling the fuel pump fuse,wait 1 minute, crank her with out your foot being on the gas for 15 sec. Put the fuse back in , and start her up normaly. 1 st attempt she started but cut off, redid the process over , got in started her up normally, but had my foot 1/4 way down on the acclerator. She started and feathered the gas til she was fully operational. Let her stay on for about 10 minutes then took her out for a good long spirited drive.smile.gif
