If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. If you do not hear the pump the inertia switch should be reset, it will "click" when it is reset.

same cranks but no start. sometimes you wait 10 to 30 minutes an starts sometimes overnight 2nd to last time was 3 days then started. Now has been many more days than that. Have spark plugs are wet after cranking. replaced both fuses in panel under hood. There is no inertia switch on Mazds? Now a person said that there is a 2x2 black box under steering wheel that is a relay and he replaced that and there was not another starting issue for about a year, then it did it again and his daughter replaced that box and it started right up. What and where exactly is this mysterious relay under steering wheel? Will be watching and thanks Ther

Wouldn't start after a 20 minute drive. Thirty minutes later, it started fine. Drove it to repair garage where it sat overnight. Garage staff reports it ahas started fien everytime they've looked at it. They ran tests on fuel pump, checked filter, still starting fine. I hate problems like this.,

Car cranks but won't start. Recently had water pump and timing belt replaced. Check engine light came on and code came back as throttle positioning sensor was bad. Did not replace yet, but now car won't start.

Car stalled during drive to work. No fuel pump whirring heard at the tank. Squirted Ether in the intake and it fired for a few seconds. Pushed it back to the house. Replaced fuel pump. Still no pump. Checked pump relay on bench and it works. Shorted test point to ground and fuel pump works. Checked for spark - none. No spark at distributor or from coil. Replaced spark module still no spark. Presently no spark and no fuel pump turn on when cranking engne

Our car is a Mazda Demio, now called Mazda 2 I think. Possibly 1999... We're in the UK. The car cranked fine, fired up then died. Battery fine, no fuel seemingly. It ran fine after pipes had been jiggled a bit. Another time a few weeks later, the immobiliser light came on and stayed on after it had refused to start. Pipes jiggled, the car went again. This light only flashed the next time we tried and it seemed to run fine, but with the threat of not being able to start again, we left it on the drive over Christmas. After much angst and time investigating the fuel pump, discovered that the car has something called ECU (it has a brain!) which had discovered no oil pressure and was trying to prevent us from driving with no oil. Sensible car! Now we just have to find out where the oil is going...
