Wont Crank or Click

Asked by Jul 20, 2017 at 11:18 AM about the 1996 Mazda B-Series B2300 RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well the thing won't crank or start.

This is what I have done so far. I wanted to put a RPM
meter on it. I followed YouTube videos on how to do it. I
cut the Tan wire w. the yellow stripes & try to connect the
wire to thr RPM meter. Then it won't start soo idk what to
do. I also took put the PCM too. (Sorry I was looking for
the wire) Now be honest, I talked to a mechanic, he said
thag I might have blown my PCM or Blown another fuse.
But when i put the key in to crank, it won't start ot click at
all. The lights come on & it wants to start but won't start.

Then my mechanic tried to start it by the... Idk what it is
called but you can start it & it wont even start. It will crank
like crazy but will not start at all.

Please help me guys!

Could be a lot of things: Battery is dead. Bad Alternator. Bad Starter. Since the car wont even crank, likely dead battery or alternator. And depending on the schematics of your fuse box, you could have a blown fuse somewhere. Hope this helps.

I have checked all of the fuses, battery is still fine, maybe the ignition switch
