I own a 1997 Mazda Miata MX-5, and have power in the "run" key position, but when i turn all the way to start the engine, nothing happens. I have 11.7 VDC from the battery so it is charged.

Sounds like the starter relay or the solenoid is on the start itself is badSome of the MX-5 also had a fuse for the ignition, check that also.

2000 miata- from a cold start, will have multiple misfires, drive it for 5 minutes and it runs perfect. have replaced fuel filter and plugs. starts and runs perfectly the rest of the time.

how about a set of plug wires? i good way to test other than getting them wet is in the a.m. when engine cold, soak em down with some wd-40 then start if ok or greatly improved then there your culprit
