SOURCE: Mazda RX8 starting problem
Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

Try first using the ignition key to unlock the system , in case this is locked.
If it is not this, then you can reset the whole system by unplugging battery cables for ten minutes.
Ensure you have your car stereo code if you decide to unplu the battery, as you will be asked for security code when you connect back the battery.

Did it all work before, or is this the reason you replaced the battery? is there a antitheft problem? does it have a key fob? does it work? Check all fuses? Did you start it and only let it run 1-2 minutes then shut the car off, they are bad about flooding if you run them and shut it off before fully warmed up. IE backing the car outside, them turning it off to wash it.
