Question about 2006 Mazda 6

1 Answer

2004 V-6 (73k miles), car won't start. Turned the key to start the car and the lights on display and other electronics start flickering and the MPH needle started going back and forth rapidly. Hooked up a jump kit to the battery and the problem wasn't resolved (5-yr battery is under 2 yrs old). Also, when the ignition key is turned a rapid clicking sound can be heard from the engine.

10k miles added to my odometer after oil change and reset light

The oil change light will come on automatically after a set number of miles (possibly 7,000 for your car). Here's how to reset the oil light:

(a) Set the odometer display window to ODO with the button.
(b) Turn the ignition switch (key) off.
(c) Press and hold down the reset button, and then turn the key to the ON or ACC position. Keep holding down the reset button for at least 5 seconds after you've turned the key.
(d) The next time you start your car the warning light should be off.

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH

You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

Hello, It sounds like you have loose battery cables or very corroded cables. If that don't help then you have a loose electrical connection.

Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert out there for this... 1996 Plymouth Voyager 3.3L engine with 165,000 miles. I'm having intermittent starting problems. I can drive for weeks and no...

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!
