My mazda mpv 2001 it does not start. replaced several parts and it does not start. starter problem?

not a starter problem
could be a problem immobilizer or a flat battery in the key fob
That will not show up in a code check
always run the fault codes before you waste money replacing what is good
there has to be a reason for it not starting and the immobilizer is a good place to test

their is no cpu in a van, their is an ecu, and that should be taken care at dealer. they must have a repair depot, or a certified area to get it repaired...
if its the check engine light, well if all fluids are fine, and it runs its ok... just go to a local garage they should be able to shut it off... have you replaced the intake filter?, run some cleaner through the system, looked around for some loose or messed up wiring around the firewall ?

Transmission kicks shifting to second gear

This is a known issue with certain '03 and '04 MPV transmissions; my 2003 had the same problem. There is a Mazda technical service bulletin about this - 05-003/004 (Shift Shock). You need to take the van to a qualified shop and have them flash the transmission control module (TCM) with new firmware.

I had this done. It did not completely fix the problem but it did reduce its occurrence.
