More then likely a bad cell in the battery, so it won't hold a charge, jump it and go to any auto parts, they will check the battery and alternator for free, I don't think it's the alternator, due to you drove it for 40 min with no trouble, if it was the alternator, the car would have turn off on you while driving it.Most of these auto parts will also install the battery for you for free.

Mazda wont start, brand new battery


sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

Something is draining my battery 134,000 M


IT costs nothing to have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell which your problems point to. While the engine is running the alternator will be handling the power requirement but the battery will not supply the power required to start.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

Is it my battery?


well this is what you should try ,,jump the car get it running
then when its warmed up take the positive lead of the battery
if the car stops the alternator is gone (thats what charges the battery) if the car runs its fine

and if u have put another new battery in it and the alternator is fine look for any broken wires earths or positives that could be making it drain so quick
and make sure your battery levels are full
hope this helps
