Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It is possible that you have a starter that is bad. The only way to verify if the starter is the problem or not, is to use a test light. When someone turns the ignition key to the START position, use a test light on the small trigger wire of the starter. If the starter is getting power on that wire when the key is in the START position, then the wiring is good and the starter is no good.

Please note that customer satisfaction is my number one goal. The website will ask you for a phone call. Feel no obligation to accept, unless you feel it will help you. We can respond in this chat back and forth many times. I may be offline when you respond but I will promptly reply when I return. Be sure to please take a quick moment and rate my assistance by clicking the stars above. Thank you for rating and for using Just Answer.
