Question about 2002 Mazda B-Series
Your starter motor consists of 3 main parts. 1. the armature 2. the solenoid and 3. the bendix. Problem with any one of them can be the source of your starter motor not working. Most commonly it is the solenoid not kicking in because it is not getting power when you turn the ignition key on. To determine this disconnect the small wire on the solenoid. Usually connected with a spade connector. Make sure the car is in neutral. Then take a wire from the live (red) terminal of the battery to the male of the spade connector on the solenoid. If the solenoid does not kick in then your problem is the solenoid. If it kicks in then your ignition switch can be faulty or a fuse is blown. Follow instructions about the fuses of a previous solution sent in.

If it starts by push start and runs then it's obviously a standard. Then it's not your wiring it's your battery. now if your battery drains down quickly, then your starter may have an internal ground . but sounds more like a f ..upped battery.sometimes you may put a battery on a charger, and it may show that it is charged, but in actual fact bateries calcifie over time, and are use less.

I'd bet that they blew the fuses that feed the starter/ignition as well - Locate the interior cab fuse box, and with the key in the "on" position. go through it with a test light (one end grounded, pointed end to each side of each of the fuses) and ensure all the fuses are good (if one side illuminates, both sides should, but not all of the fuses will be hot) - I'd also look under the hood and check the fuse links and other main fuses located there as well - -I'd bet you'll find one or more of them is bad or blown...Hope that helps...Hope you find it - Damn thieves...
