Mazda 626 starter

I have a 1995 Mazda 626, right now the vehicle will not start and I believe it's because of corrosion on the pos cable. I would like to change the entire cable, but I don't know how to get to the starter.

On the same but separate issue, when I turn my key all the car does is make a click sound. The power accesories work fine, but the car will not turn over. I put a new battery in the car a few days ago and it worked for about 2 cranks. I tried to jump it but nothing happened, the tow truck guy came buy and used a jumper machine and it started right up. We turned off the car and turned the key again and it just clicked. He put the machine again and it started just fine. He said the battery is the problem, but before I go and invest in a new battery I want to be sure. Does this sound like a simple battery problem?

    I have the exact same problem. Started about 3 months ago. I started it useing supercrank on a battery charger so I changed the battery. It still wouldnt start so I jumped it with the charger again. Been good for about 3 months. Two days ago it got real cold and rainy. Exact same problem. Turn the key nothing, Jump with superstart and its good till I turn the key off, then nothing. Just had the battery and starter checked and both tested good. Im going to change the cables next. Everything on this car is hard to get to.

Yes, it could be as simple as a bad battery. But it could also be a bad wire from the battery to the starter or bad wire from the fuse block to the starter. Based on your information, I'd say the battery you have now is either junk or just doesn't have enuf amperage to turn the starter over. Perhaps you just needed to put the NEW battery you bought on charge for a day before you installed it. Batteries sit on the shelf for a long time sometimes before they get sold and lose some of their charge. When you buy a battery at a garage, you should always MAKE them load test the battery before you pay for it. That way you'll know EXACTLY how much charge is on it. Don't just expect to install the new battery and think the car will start right up. This is a huge mistake. If they tell u they have to charge it first, just tell them to load test it ONLY and make them let u watch. If they won't do either of those things....go to another garage. That being said, they'll probably not have a problem with u physically seeing the condition of the battery. It's much easier (and smarter) for them to keep ur business and sell u a battery than to shuffle u off and let someone else make $$. Good luck to you.

When i try to start my 97 mazda 626 it clicks but won't turn over and other times it starts.. What's the problem?

It sounds like your starter motor is going out. More specifically the solenoid on your starter motor, and since the they are both connected these days unlike the older vehicles you like need to replace the whole starter motor. I hope this helps you out.

My 1995 mazda 626 4 cyl wont start. its getting gas spark. when you turn the moter over you hear like a muffeled noise at the moter not muffler

Your problem could be a lot of things ,,without hearing the noise we have to gess your problems like
1Chech the engine for turning over if not then its the starter bendix slipping and if it is turning over as usual then its could be the starter ring on the flywheel and if so turn key off and turn engine over by hand about 1/2 way around on bottom pully and try starting again and if it starts then its the starter ring.
Engine or Gearbox out job.
Let me know how you get on . Ron

Replace starter

  1. stu~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: When servicing the starter motor or performing other underhood work in the vicinity of the starter motor (11002), be aware that the heavy gauge battery input lead at the starter solenoid is "electrically hot" at all times. A protective cap or boot is provided over this terminal (B-terminal) on all carlines and must be replaced after servicing. Be sure to disconnect the battery ground cable before servicing the starter motor.

New alternator new battery new ignition wire still won't crank just a clicking noise but will crank if it is jumped off. 1998 mazda 626

This is almost certainly a bad starter/solenoid sticking. If you hear the click sound hit the solenoid(NOT the electrical connection!!) on the starter several times with a hammer. If it starts you definitely need a starter. This trick will only work for a few days - so replace that starter.(disconnect battery before replacing it !)

Mazda 626

Hi Janieanip01,
Again we need more imfo....Is the vehicle injection?....If it is you'll have to wait until the fuel rail is re-pressurised before it will start....Crank it for about ten seconds at a time so as not to burn out the starter motor....It may be that the vehicle didn't run out of fuel but instead the pump may have given in....and when did you last replace the fuel fiter?
