Battery not charging in Mazda Millenia year 2000

Low start power in the morning finally resulted in car not starting after engine was shut off to fill gas tank. Lights, clock, radio all work, but car was hard to start with jumper cables. As soon as engine was shut off, car would not start again.

    Thanks... I ended up changing the battery as a first step, and the car is running fine now... Will take your advice and check for sources of power draw... Thanks again...

    I fill the tank and then my car has a hard time starting and runs weird. First and second gear are very sluggish as well but every other gear is good. What could this be?

Sounds like a similar problem I had. I had a bad battery. Jumping the car and charger did not help. All instruments work as I am guessing the battery had enough juice to light those but not enough to start car. Either bad battery or alternator. I changed out the battery and everything was fine. If you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, make sure they are setup right. The amp may be drawing power even if radio and car is off which may attribute to low start power (including above suggestions).

My 2000 Mazda Millenia ran out of gas and after I put gas in it wouldn't start, what do you suggest?

I assume that you filled with the right grade of gas, not diesel. The simplest fix to try is to make sure that after filling there isn't
an air lock in the system as a result of running out of gas. There should be guidance available to allow you to bleed the system. Is there a service manual available that you could check? Any information available by contacting the manufacturer? Try to find an enthusist group.

Need more info. Could be fuel pump pressurizing. You should turn ac to off position before shutting down the engine, it causes strain on engine start and premature compressor failure.

If you ever have an oil leak it really should be fixed right away unless this happened all at once. Go to a local mech or if there is an Autozone around go there and have them check the Engine Light code for you for free. You will have more info to work with.
