There is a draw, plus you say it doesnt charge? The alternator may be bad, causing both problems.

The alternator is what charges the battery, most likely there is a bad connection at or to the battery, or the alternator has quit working and you will need to replace the alternator.

1992 Mazda mpv . Won't hold charge . Engine won't


The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

Does the car start fine after it dies with out charging? If it only starts after charging then it may be the alternator. but if it dies then you can just restart it without a charge then the charging system is working.

2001 Mazda MPV, have replaced Alternator, but battery light keeps coming on. When negative terminal wire is removed the engine dies, but using meter the voltage output is around 13.85-14. Checked all...


Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

Battery died (or not). When I give it a jump, the car starts, but as soon I remove the jump cable, car turns off.. What could be the issue>


Your issue is indicating two problems. First let's talk about how your charge system works so that you can see what happened. The battery is there to start the engine. At the point the engine starts, the alternator takes over and provides power to the engine and also charges the battery for the next time you start your car. If the alternator fails to work, the engine runs solely off the battery. The car should have indicated that the charge system is not working, maybe you saw a battery light on your dashboard. After some time, the battery is depleted and will not start the car or be able to run the engine. So it appears that you have a defective alternator, and also your battery is either discharged, or is also bad. When you hook up your car to jumper cables, you are running off of your buddy's charge system/battery, so when you disconnect them, your car dies.

Stopped car in drive. next morning no electrics at all.not even a glow. battery terminals still tight. is there a master fuse? MAZDA MX5 1992. 1600.


If your car was running fine when you parked it, you most likely have a drained battery. Try jumping the car or charging the battery. If that works you need to figure out what was left on to drain the battery.
