Customer Question

Customer: Hi Drew, thanks. I have a Mazda3 and I cant start the car
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had an electrician check the car, firstly because I didn't have any tail lights and front fog.. all was off. just the headlight beams worked however, when he kept messing around with the fuses and relays, the car wouldn't start anymore
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Mazda Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: when you insert the key to start, on the dash. The key icon keeps blinking on the dashboard
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, I will try my best to help you with your concern. First what year is your Mazda 3? What was the issue leading up to the lights not working? Are the lights working now? Have you check the fuse panel that the person was messing with?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Dear Sir. My mazda is a Mazda Axela, which is equivalent to the Mazda3 hatchback. 2006 model.I still don't know what is wrong with the lights. I have checked the fuses underneath the dash passenger side and in the engine bay next to the battery. But all seem intact.
Expert:  SARMIENTO22556 replied 11 months ago.

I can pull up a picture of the Mazda 3. I'm not sure it is going to be the same. that way you can compare the placement of fuses and see if they are still in the right spot.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Sure we can try that.
