Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.
When this happens does it always crank?
Does the instrument cluster always energize?
Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
Thanks, ***** ***** much rules out the ignition switch. Does this occur often enough you can remove the relay and see what inputs are missing or check the power flow through the inertia switch to see if its not getting powered up?
Do you understand wire diagrams and wire testing? If so I can provide this circuits diagram so you can test it when it completely fails or gets worse.
Super, see the link below.
Yes I have had to diagnose this issue before. It is not always the same thing to blame, thus my reluctance to say replace X. I have to more so test things to find out what is not to blame to narrow it down to what is to blame. Yes the pump can be the issue.
Not always true, a pump can have intermittent operation but that normally occurs when restarting when the pump is already hot from prior use. Yes it is possible for a connector to have some corrosion causing resistance.
Can you check the fuel pressure?
IS the vehicle in need of a tune up?
Thanks, ***** ***** know the results of the next tests so we can get to figuring this out.
I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.
You could test the power and ground to the pump monitoring it with a multimeter ran into the cab to see if you lose these when it stalls or you could just replace the pump in hopes thats it.
