The security system has been set. I need you to do this for me step by step.
take a pen a paper with you, turn the ignition switch to the run position and look for the security light. Do not try to start the car. Watch the security light, it should come on and go off after 3 seconds. If there is a fault it will start blinking. Count the blinks, there should be some long blinks and some fast blinks. tell me what happens.
i ran through the list and nothing worked. when the key was in "run" position the dsc light was flashing because the power was cut off. When i turned the steering wheel both ways the light stopped flashing. We smell gas so we think it might be flooded and the spark plus might have been effected. Luckily i have another broken down mazda rx8 with brand new spark plugs sitting on the seat so we are going to try and replace the spark plugs and ill let you know how that goes..
i am not sure why they were suppose to notify me when you responded and i never recieved the response. Ok so nothing worked. But the check engine light i kinda watched it and this time something different happened. it stayed on for 20 seconds then blinked 7 times and stay on after that.
great news! i was reading some forums and it turns out i wasnt holding the key in start position long enough. After i gave the engine time to get a little warmed up from trying to start it black smoke came out all over, and it started up! YAY... took it for a ride let all that crap get out of the exhaust and came home turned it off and on again and its running. Thank you for your help and just tell me how to pay you the money for your assistance and i will gladly forward it to you.
