Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?
yes the engine cranks but won't start. i have pulled the plug that connects the wires to the distributor and used a test light while the engine was cranking on all the wires and nothing lit the light. then i checked to see if i was getting fire from the coil and i wasn't. so i'm thinking it's something to do with the computer.
check relays for corosion...if your not getting fuel that is..it's on the front left in the engine bay i belive it's the the furthest one bak of the 2..the other ones for the blower motor so if you unplug it you can see if the blower motor still works to see weather it's the right on..i'm really tired..going to bed
depending on what model you own this will be different. Have the ignitor checked out or just replace it... if you own a GT it will say Ignitor on a lil piece next to your coil. If you own a non turbo model they built it into the distributor... It seems to be a common problem with these cars yet noone ever thinks of it when these threads pop-up every week. I had it happen to my DX and searched thru the whole ignition system untill I found it to be the problem. Any auto parts store should carry it as I wouldnt recommend going to a Mazda dealer. When I worked in parts at Mazda I about **** myself when I saw how much they wanted for it

he would still get power to the coil though if the igniter was gone.the igniter just grounds it...but if he is getting power to the coil ,ya look into the igniter or the hall effect sensor, take an end off the fuel filter see if when the key is on the on position gas comes out..if so it's not the relay...then check for power at teh coil, you know it's either the sensor or igniter or connection in that circuit..and if you have a soildering gun you can activate the hall effect sensor by putting it near it and pressing the buttin on the gun that should activate the injectors...if it does that and still no spark..the wireing from the sensor to the igniter is bad or igniter to the coil is bad...or teh igniter itself is bad..
If you have a non-turbo engine, I would suspect it is the ignitor/distributor. Mine went and I had the same problem, I got a replacement distributor from Advanced Auto Parts for under $200, the dealer wants over $600 for this part. The ignitor and distributor are a complete unit on the non-turbo and must be replaced together.
