2002 Mazda Millenia no crank no start cranks by stater not key no fire to plugs or fuel pump


Could have faulty starter relay that provides crank signal voltage to starter when key is turned to start. Assume the no voltage to plugs or fuel pump performed when jumping the starter directly at the starter. Was the key turned to run position? Needs to be or no power to rest of system.

My Mazda Millenia won't start or turn over. I replaced the battery and still nothing. When I try to crank it all the lights come on but that's just about it? What's wrong?


Do you have any other symptoms, like the lights dimming when you turn the key, or a clicking sound from the engine compartment?
It sounds like your starter is not engaging and that could be from a number of reasons. The main culprit is usually the starter solenoid, which is the main switch between the battery and the starter motor. Sometimes the starter itself is faulty, very possible, so have that checked. If you can't move the car, you will have to take the starter out. You could do a quick check if the starter will turn or not.
1 Remove all jewelry from your hands. There is a LOT of power on the starter, you don't want to cook your fingers.
2 Take a heavy metal object, preferably a large screwdriver that you have no emotional attachment to.
3 Short out the two big terminals on the starter solenoid. The starter should now spin, but will not engage. If this happens, the starter might be OK.
4 Trace the main battery cable to the starter. Now short out the main cable to the smaller contact on the starter. This should pull in the solenoid and turn over the engine. If this does not happen, your solenoid is suspect. If the engine does turn over, you have a wiring problem, or a problem on the ignition switch. The latter is very unlikely, but possible.
Happy hunting!

My car will not crank the batter is fine someone said my altenator buts not draining so could be a post or just the starter


the alternaor doesnt affect the starter. check the battery connections, If you think its the starter, have someone hold the key on like trying to crank the engine and rap on the starter lightly with a hammer, if it starts then, replace the starter. if not you may need to find a shop to diagnose it.

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1997 Milennia 6cyl? I have a friend who cannot start his car. He changed the battery and when he turns the key gets only a click.


That issue isn't a solenoid, that issue sounds like a starter. The solenoid is integral into that starter for that year/make/model. If he's getting a click, then that says to me that power is reaching the starter, and the internal starter solenoid is opperating. However, it also ays that the starter bendix is not engaging. I would remove, test, and if bad, replace the starter.
