Question about 2004 Mazda 3
Turn the key no starter action but can bump start car
Check you are getting a live feed to the starter solenoid (small wire on the starter) If you are, you need to strip the starter off it and find a replacement.
It is probably the starter solenoid - (which is non-repairable) that has stuck.
As a test, try hitting the starter motor with a length of wood. If it then works, then look for a replacement as it WILL do this again , and again untill replaced.
If you are not getting a live feed to the starter, or this doesn't work - please contact me again for further assistance.
If this results in a solution for you. Please take the time to rate as a Fixya.
