2002 mazda protege nothing electrical works when ignition is turned on

Question From sparton07sev on 2002 mazda protege nothing electrical works when ignition is turned on

Yesterday I tried starting my 2002 Mazda protege and nothing happened, there was no clicking no anything all the dash lights turned off, the odometer turned off. I took the key out and turned on the overhead light to see if there was enough power for that and there was. I proceeded to try to start the car again and after I put the key in the ignition I tried the light again and it wouldn't turn on. I'm thinking this is a faulty ignition switch but I was wondering if anyone else is thinking this may be the problem as well. Thanks in advance for any advice given.

update: went and checked the starter by running a jumper wire from the battery to ignition relay terminal on the starter. The car started, so I'm going replace the ignition switch and I'll let you know what happens.

update: replaced the ignition switch and the car started up just fine. Before the car didn't start the radio went out but I thought that I had just wiggled a cord and unplugged it since I was replacing the heater controls on the dash, but after I replaced the ignition switch the radio started working again.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Two things possible/likely,
Battery really is 99.9% dead and know that one overhead light a watch battery could light so means almost nothing by itself.
No noises - nothing: It also could be battery connections even if they look good the draw from just opening a door never mind starter it can behave like it's disconnected and at other ends of cables that go to It as well.
Try this: Most cars you can force the overheat lights or interior lights to stay on keys or not. Look at it while trying to crank engine if it lights at all. If right then it goes out and nothing happens connections more likely.
Any which way charge that battery with a charger not a jumper box or jump yet. Then it works or doesn't and ready to test the battery itself in car or take it for testing,

Have the battery tested and make sure the battery connections are clean and tight.

1983 Mazda truck with electrical problems..

Question From petelg on 1983 Mazda truck with electrical problems..

Hi fellas... I have and old Mazda B2000 work truck that's just used for hauling off trash in... It's a 1983, standard transmission; 6cyl carburated. My problem is I'm not getting fire back to my fuel pump.. I can turn the ignition switch on and at timesthe dash lights with work and sometimes not... When they do I get fire back to the fuel pump. The engine will always turn over even if the dash lights fail to connect..I did try to enstall a starter switch to see if that was my problem. I enstall it to the back of the key ignition and plugged it in but that failed to be the problem...Since it's and old work truck and I really don't have the knowledge or paitience to figure these electrical problems out can I just rig up something that will get me juice going back to the fuel pump..Like I said the engine turns over when you turn the ignition switch and I really don't need all of the electrical stuff working.. Just the starter and fuel pump..No, I'm not a very bright mechanic but if someone will walk me thru a solution I'd really appreciate it...Thanks......Pete

Response From Hammer Time

You said it was carburated. Why would it have an electric fuel pump?

Response From petelg

I don't know how many owners it's had before it fell into our hands..But the fuel pump sits on the frame next to the fuel tank.. It has a two wire electrical connection coming from the top of the fuel tank that plugs into the fuel tank pig tail.. One small wire is "black" and the other is "black&white"...Does that help any... Thanks...Pete

Response From Discretesignals

The black white wire is the hot wire from the ignition switch. It should have 12 volts on it with the ignition turned on. The black wire is the ground to the frame. It should have less than 0.3 volt drop with the ignition turned on.

Why would it have an electric fuel pump?

A lot of Asian vehicles those years had low pressure electric fuel pumps.

Response From petelg

Can I run a direct wire from the battery...or hot wire directly to the fuel pump and turn it on by an inline swith under the dash orwill it burn it up?..

Response From Hammer Time

It needs to be powered through the ignition switch. You don't want the pump to run with the key off.

Response From petelg

I can't locate a "black & white" wire coming off of the ignition switch..

Response From Hammer Time

It goes through a 15amp fuse after leaving the ignition switch.

Response From MarineGrunt


It goes through a 15amp fuse after leaving the ignition switch.



Speaking of fuse......have you even checked the fuse?

Response From petelg

Well I call myself checking connections...fuses and everything else I could think of... Would the "black and white" wire that goes to the fuel pump be a different color coming off of the ignition switch? And the 15 amp fuse your referring to?... Is it under the dash also( haven't seen any fuse under there) or located somewhere else...And thanks again for helping me...Pete

Response From Hammer Time

Yes, it's going to be a different color because it is not the only accessory being run off that feed. You really should have been testing all of your fuses with a test light before even posting here. That's basic stuff.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Pete - even 1983 I think most of these had substandard battery cable ends right at battery. If the prime source of all electric power is marginal so will everything else it's doing. Check that. Neg off first, on last and everything at battery needs to end up clean and tight - wire brush, sandpaper or a quality new splice end up to whole new cable if a horror show there,

Response From petelg

Hi fella's...I found and appropriate "hot" wire coming off of the ignition switch... It is a "black and white" wire. I tied into it and run it under the foor board and tied it into the pigtail on the fuel pump. I also run a ground wire from the other terminal on the pig tail and grounded it to the frame...So far everything seems to be working fine... I can hear the fuel pump working when I turn the ignition on and its been starting everytime.. As long as I can drive it one one end of the yard to the other and drop off limbs at the burning pile I'll be staisitied with it... lol... Thanks everyone for your help...Pete

Response From Hammer Time

That will work good right up to the point where the truck catches fire.

That's not the way to fix this problem.

I'll bring the marsh mellows and hot dogs. HT, you bring the beer and women...LOL


Response From Discretesignals

6 cylinder?

With the ignition on or in the start position you should have 12 volts to the fuel pump. Have you checked for voltage at the pump?

Question From dwaynemoore1983 on wont start

i have a 1994 mazda b 2300, it will not start with the ignition switch. i have to cross out the starter solenoid mounted on the driver fender. i recently replaced this solenoid today
please any help would greatly be appreciated.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

You need to follow a wiring diagram with a test light. You could have issues with fuses, clutch/neutral switch, ignition switch or starter relay.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Trigger wire no doubt isn't getting power for "start" request so chase that and where the power stops if it leaves ignition switch at all,
