Question about 1995 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

I loaned a car to a friend who neglected to start it all winter, now it won't start or jump. Am I right in assuming this is a problem that can be fixed by replacing the battery, and if so what size battery should I buy to replace it? The car is a 1995 Mazda Protege.

The battery probably is gone. For a battery? Take your old battery to a place that sells batteries and they will duplicate it for you. Good luck

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

My '03 Stang GT won't start. I turn the key and nothing. It has 30g miles, and a friend said it is probably a fuse, not the battery. A jump start did not help. Any ideas?


I believe those vehicles have a spade terminal on the starter it has a plastic square covering on it grab it and wiggle it and pull and push it than try to start those connectors get corroded and dirty!

Suburban won't start, bought a new battery but does no thing, when jump started it stays running until it is shut off and will not start again


If you can jump start it and it stays running....I am assuming that you connect the Jumper Cable Ground to something other than your battery. If so, Your negative battery cable is suspect. Check both ends for ANY corrosion or loose connections.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

sounds like your battery is just low,, it doesn't have the amps to actually turn the car over fully, you have 2 options, get the battery charged, or try to get someone to help you with a jump start,, either way , once you get it started, take the battery and have someone do a LOAD test on it,, to be sure all the cells are taking a full charge

2001 BMW 525i - Not starting - Is it a dead battery?


THE BATTERY IS LOCATED IN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TRUNK IN A COMPARTMENT .... COULD BE THE BATTERY IS DEAD AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.... JUMP STARTING YOUR CAR CAN LEAD IN SERIOUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS .... YOUR BEST BET IS TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL BMW DEALER AND PURCHASE A NEW BATTERY

2002 escort has problems starting in winter...


I would first have the battery tested, it may have enough power to start the car in a warm garage but not enough outside when it is cold. It is not the volts that start the car, it is the cold cranking amps, testing will tell you how much the battery has left.
