Question about 1999 Mazda 626
Alternately...if you are comfortable with doing this...You will need a dense metal object that you can get at the starter with, locate the starter, apply the dense metal object liberally for a few good whacks, then try to start the engine, sometimes the solenoid will seize, this method will dislodge the mechanism and allow for a good start, however is a temp fix, you will still need to replace the starter. worked wonders on my old chevy and my 95 mazda

It is possible that your starter motor is stuck. First of all you can place your vehicle in the 2nd gear and push to disengage the starter if it had the bendex stuck. there after try to start. If not you will need to remove the starter motor. carefully do remove and place it on a table . clean off all dirt, then open the motor carefully. you can even test the motor with a heavy power cord and the battery but please be very careful to hold or use a good vice grip to hold since the intial torque can make it slip from your hand. thereafter check the brushes and the bush / bearings. if damaged or wobbly change / replace. Now you can reset the starter motor and test.
I am sure it will work. Good day

Sounds like a faulty / intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.
