Unhappy Flashing lights and no crank.

I sure could use some help with this question.

Weird shiiiiieeesh!

My wife's 93MX6 took a weird dump today.

The grey ghost has been sitting for three days.
Nothing unusual there. Barb started it up, drove three blocks, and shut it down.

When she tried to restart the dash and hazard lights flashed for a minute or so but the car
wouldn't crank????????????????

I tried to jump it with some really crap cables,
same o same o.

I pulled the battery, had it tested, marginal at best.

I put a new, known good battery in and same o same o.

Car will not crank, dash light flash, (all) and the outside hazards flash, but only for a minute or so.

I'm guessing I've got security system problems,
or wiring harness problems.

Any imput would be greatly appreciated.

I always remember reading that if the stock security system is messed with in the ls's, that the car will start but then SHORTLY after shut itself down entirely. Only way to remedy this is to take it to the dealer so they can rewire the system.

Farms in Berkeley? MOOOoooo....

Bummer! I haven't messed wit' the security system
but, it appears as if it has been triggered. I don't have a horn blowing but I do have the flashing lights and no crank.

Does anybody know if there is a online service manual or wiring diagrams for this 93MX6 LS.

Let me start off by saying I don't have a clue.. Have you tried disconnecting the wires for the alarm in the hood latch to disable the alarm? When you say lights flashing I assume this is on its own, ie. you aren't doing it. Does your horn work at all? I don't know of any online documentation for wiring, Haynes repair manual has some wiring diagrams though.

hiXeon, thanx for the reply.

I haven't tried anything yet, except a new battery. You say the alarm can be disabled at the hood latch? Under hood or dash?

What happens is, turn the key to start, the
hazard flashers start, motor doesn't. The horn is not activated as if alarming. Flashers continue for a minute or so then quit. Horn works great, no evidence of low voltage. Does Haynes make a MX6 specific manual or do I buy the Probe manual? I
may have wiring harness issues, the A/C heat
air outlet controls quit a month or so back. And
then the airbag light started flashing a code. I
don't know how many ECU's control all this stuff
but I guess I'm due to learn. My MR2 has seperate
ECU's for each of these functions, but I suspect
the MX6 uses only one. Or none of these problems
are related.

Haynes does have the wiring diagrams but I would imagine they are pretty general. The MX-6, 626, and Probe manual is the same.

I can scan the diagram for the starting/charging circuit. If you want, just PM me.

The wiring is on the inside of the hood for the hood latch. It is there in case someone unlatches the hood while that alarm is activated. Generally once the alarm is activated, it will shut off once power is taken away or at least mine did when I was having problems with it. My problem was in the shut off via the drivers side door lock. Replacing your battery should have definitely taken away power, but it sounds like yours is permanently on for some reason. Open the circuit in the hood latch and see if that helps to disable it. Your horn should be blowing also, I'm gonna have to look at my diagrams too. The Haynes manual is for Mazda 626 & MX6 and Ford Probe 93-98 for all models. Tres weird...

Smile UPDATE!

hi, thanx to everyone for offering advise and help.

Here's how it finally turned out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

1 Direct test starter. Cranks
2 Leave existing solenoid supply wire connected and add start switch wired to solenoid.
3 Car started and ran, still with all dash lights, parking lights, hazards etc flashing.
Associated relay noises clicking in dash right behind drink holder.
The flashing and clicking quit after 2minutes and everything functioned normally
ie turn signals flashers etc.
4 Take dash a part and find remote keyless entry /starting ECU, some after market
add on trouble maker brand name (your) VALET. Model 711T. Well when I unplugged
this black box everything worked as normal.
5 I now have an extra start switch on the dash. (grin)

Dealer add on I'm sure, I'm owner 2 and I bought it off of original dealer . PO traded
on a Miata.
