The batterie died on I needed to replace it. Now I think the alarm kill switch was activated. The problem is that I know it is after market but don't know what brand it is. I also don't have the keyless remote control. Help

Search through the area in the footwell of the drivers side. There will be a very small button. This is a valet/progaming button that is on all aftermarkets. It may be by itself, it may be connected to the brain unit, or it could even be attached to the alarm antenna, which is usually on the windshield. You need to press this button when turning on the car some alarms you need to hold the button down others you just need to press it. This will shut off the alarm until it is reactivated with the key fob.

Where do you find fuel pump switch for a mazda RX8

Do you mean the fuel pump crash cutoff switch? It takes a 3G rear collision to activate it, if that is not the case you have another issue.

Changed the battery and it set off the alarm. it seams like it activated a kill switch of some kind. is there a way to reset it?

You probably had your alarm set when you took out the old one. Just unlock your doors with your key fob, then disconnect the battery again for a few minutes and let it reset with the alarm off.

Changed battery in rain have lights engine turns over but no fire

The rx8 has the rotary ankles engine in it, these have porcelain tipped rotors instead of pistols and are prone to wear resulting in them not starting. The car should start with a bump or toe start. This will require an engine strip down and rebuild and should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. (Mazda recommend rotors be replaced every 25000 miles)

Let me know if this helps

Mazda 6i alarm going off and battery dying

The alarm is going off most likely due to a defective battery in the car, this is caused by low system voltage, so you have it backwards. Have the battery load tested by Autozone it is free.

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?

My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

I recently had my car jump started and now when I put the key in the ignition, the hazard lights flash and the horn sounds continuously.

need to reset ur car alarm, once battery dies down and u boost her up, the car alarm becomes activated. Just shut off the alarm like u usually do before starting ur car.
