Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

I got the year and the make, but not the model car?

Will the engine at least crank?

Mazda Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

At the starter is the large wire showing battery voltage when tested with a volt meter?

Is the small wire also showing battery voltage when trying to start?
