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.

engine cranck but won't start. I can not find inertia switch
Car cranks over no spark!.....first we replaced the fuel pump relay, We replaced the fuel,pump, the spark plugs and wires. The distributer, the car cranks but no fire we tested the plugs and no fire. We can't hear the fuel pump click on at all now. The darn thing cranks but no fire! help!!!!!
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
How do you master reset the iritnia
came here looking for help. Car was running in town, and started to lose power, then stopped. Try to start, and it cranks but doesn't catch.
replaced battery and hauled in on rollback lights blink and horn blows cranks over but will not start. acts as though the security system is shutting it down.
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.,
replaced intake manifold gasket and now cranks but wont start checked vacuum line replace plugs and wires and now could it be because of timing issues i did the water pump a two weeksa ago.. stumped need help and where is the inersa switch located
