P0661 is an SSV Solenoid problem. P2259 is an A.I.R. solenoid problem. they both have power coming from the Main Relay. its complicated but make sure the fuses are good EGI Comp 1 and the AIR PUMP other than that the dealer will need to check it.

Car won't start

Does the car try to start at all when you turn key? If it does try but just won't start then it could be flooded. If you had it started and running the night before and say went arond o the store rewl quick and back home hen it wouldn't start the next morning.. I would bet money he engine is flooded. Its an expensive fix at dealer, but you can do I yourself for free with one socket and a few minutes.

My 2005 rx8 turns over but doesnt start

I have a 2004 RX-8 and had the same problem. Mine ended up being that the ignition coils went bad. I've read on several forums for rotory cars that the ignition coils are a huge weak point and should be replaced around 30-40K on the odo. For all four(new) I paid 125 or so and fixed the problem right away. It starts better now than it ever has. Took me about 15 mins to change all four out.

Car won't start and now makes a rapid ticking noise

all of this is result of low battery as all of you know but for the one who it wouldnt start and then killed your battery the rotary engine with its desing will flood after just a few attempts to start so most likley it was flooded and if your battery was already low than im sure you killed in a short amount of time
