Hi there.Are you getting any current at the starter solenoid when the key is turned to START?

Yes I am
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It will even crank every few times I try and let it rest but when it does crank it idles funny
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 1 year ago.
OK. We need to establish common terms so we can communicate effectively; "Won't crank" means nothing happens when the key is turned to START; "Cranks but won't start" means the starter turns the engine but the engine will not catch and run on its own; "Starts and stalls" means the engine will start and then die. Can you tell me which of those conditions best describes what is happening with your Mazda?
