Re: will not start

What all have you checked? What does it do when you try to start it? Does it crank? Does it "try" to start? Does it do nothing at all? Make only a "click"? I need more information, possibly I can help you.

Re: will not start

My 93 gt also does not start, cranks, but havent confirmed spark, nothin seems out of the ordinary however, seems like fuel starvation to me. Im thinkin it may be that fuel cutoff switch but I forget where it is, also could be my alarm system I suppose Ungo. Gonna go check it out some more and see If I cant figure it out, after all its not as complicated as the helicopter that I work on.

Re: will not start

Check for spark to the coil and each spark plug. Also, check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Your starter and starter solenoid and relay obviously works since it cranks over, as does your battery so you can cancel that out. Also, check items like your main fuse, and fuel pump relay fuse.

Re: will not start

Dont know if this applies but found this:

Ignitor Module
- Failure mode: engine cut-out, restarting fails specifically due to no ignition spark being produced, restarting may be possible after a short period during whilst the power transistor in the power transistor undergoes thermal reset, no ECU code will be set, 1993-94 only affected.
-- Ford-UK parts -- Coil 3974598 at ~33.15 & Ignitor 3974599, the TSB is known to all Ford & Mazda Main Dealers.
-- Mazda-US parts -- Complete refurbished distributor, 277$US from Trussville Mazda, USA, parts@trussvillemazda.com.
It is not necessary to replace an entire distributor, only the parts which are an easy DIY filt.

Re: will not start

Hi everybody, I'm having the same problem. My Probe won't start. When I try to turn on, there's only 1 click and if I keep trying to turn the key after the first, won't click nomore till after a while. And by the way, the engine doesn't turn.
