Customer Question
Starter won't turn over...

Starter won't turn over, but then it does. Feels like an electrical problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?

Single click.

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

2002 protege5

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Protege5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to sell fix. Haven't tried anything yet. Think next is starter relay.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Transmission was overhauled. Now there is a click click click on the transmission that goes away when you step on the brake.

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.

Do you want to try the relay and report back?

Do you have a volt meter so we can do some testing?
