2013

It is my wife's - see is at home & I am at work - was just looking for an idea of what to try when I get home

Ask Your Own Mazda Question

Will the engine crank and not start or no cranking at all?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no crank at all -- the button is pushed and nothing

Ok

A lot of time when this happens it's as simple as a jump start. Leaving the car in drive keeps the transmission control module on and also the solenoids. This can result in draining the battery. So I would start by trying a jump start. Leave the donor car on it for 15 minutes, then attempt to start it.

Let me know.

Thanks.
