I have a 2002 Mazda B 2300 pickup. Standard transmissioin with 60K miles. I shut the engin off. When I tried to restart it there was no response. dash lights came on, seat belt buzzer sounded but not even a click. I have a new battry and have checked all the fuzes in the dash fuze box. Any help would be apprieated. Lee

Re: Truck won't start.
Check your starter selenoid by jump the battery side of the terminal to the small post next to the battery side. It should send the signal to the starter and rotate the engine. If it doesn't your selenoid is bad. You can bench test your starter by removing it and using jumper cables. Connect the battery post on the starter to the red side of the cables and the black to the starter housing at the bolt hole. The go to the positive and negative of the battery. Starter should rotate, if not, replace it. I usually replace the selenoid and starter together.

stalls. engine stalls. Stalls only HOT. and fails hot soaked.
stalls have 4 paths ?
1: lost DC power, to EFI (spark and fuel brains) "loose fuse?"
2: lost compression only hot (compression gauge to rescue)
3: lost spark or the classic, never doing 60k mile tuneups.
or the classic EGR stuck open , again not ever cleaned at 60k
4: bad fueling. (too much floods, it and stalls it, or tool lean it dies)
(or stuck closed ISC) we clean it at 60k with the EGR. as part of the 60k service points listed in the missing operators guide. (bet)
in that order, this 4 macro paths to , no stalls.
do you want me to guess which of 50 parts are bad.?
or do the 4 tests. to find which path it is.
one takes a month, other 1hr.
one more test. can you save this stall with a fast right foot?
I had the same problem . on my 2002 silverado it turned to be the fuel pump failed because the fuel filter was clogged. I did the work myself could saved myself 219.00 and labor if I replaced a 7.00 $ Filter .
next time this happens get someone to hold the key to start if manual with clutch in and tap on the sterter with a hammer or something. if it starts you can just replace the starter contacts or the starter
Check the engine coolant temperature sensor for proper operation. If the sensor is disconnected, wires to it broken, or the sensor is stuck in full cold mode, it will tell the computer to schedule fuel for full cold operation--which is way too much fuel for a warm engine. The engine then floods out and won´t restart until the extra fuel evaporates.
check your coil and see if you have fire.if you have fire then you need to check your fuel pressure. i have a mazda 2600i that did the same thing and it was the coil .did your truck back fire when you shout it off?. if it did iam pretty sure its your coil.note there is a module in side the dis very few people know about this but they are not notted for going bad good luck
