The act of replacing the battery will not damage or effect Remote start up or ECM functions. Either this is a coincidence or when the Battery was replaced you inadvertently affected a ground strap. Ground straps are placed against painted panels. These panels can arc because of poor contact surface area. A poor ground will affect different on-board systems. Please start there. The autostart feature utilizes the same circuits that the ignition key uses to start the vehicle. The only difference is the autostart system bypasses the anti theft circuit at the ignition switch. If you can duplicate the symptoms consistently and are sure the autostart system is affecting ignition operations. These issues would go back to the PCM. Ignition voltage could be affected by a short or faulty component. I must say that the failure is a misfire code to cylinder number three.

The Mazda CX-7 ran for 6yrs (2006-2012), which year is yours? Sorry but without specific diagnostic information. There is no way to narrow down your search or provide helpful ideas. Your symptoms could be anything. For Example: Out of gas, Low or no fuel pressure, Timing issue, Blown fuse, Faulty wiring, Bad ground, Defective CKP sensor, Damaged PCM or faulty ignition component. Please write back but I need much more information to help. Is the engine light on? Do you own a scan tool or code reader? If so, did you already look to see if any codes were stored?

Wiper motors have a park position switch mechanism built into them that when it goes bad it will not stop . A good used one may be an affordable option . Test the power from the switch to the motor first to make sure it is not stuck in the run position .

More than likely there is a bad ground. The same ground wire that is used for the headlights is spliced into and used for the parking lights, brake lights and directional lights. The circuits for the brake lights, the brake light switch, the directions and directional switch are related. The circuits for the parking lights, headlights, headlight switch and high/low beam switch are related as well, but the only thing all these circuits have in common is their ground source. Any questions feel free to write back. Good Luck.
