Having problems with your 1992 Mazda 323 ?
Mazda 323 1998
\015 We think the engine immobalizer is stopping the car from starting it trys to start but wont turn over we have checked all other options and believe it to be the immobalizer HOW would we know for sure that it is the problem?\015
There are two ways to hook up an immobilizer on a car. One is to break the continuity of the ignition system power suplly. This would result in an engine that cranks but wont start. Another way is to break the continuity of the starting relay. If an installer knows what he is doing he would wire it so that the relay wont get power to the coil. This would result in a car that don't even click when you turn the key so I doubt it is the immobilizer. If the starting relay clicks, the contacts on the relay might be worn out, and not getting enough current to drive the solenoid. One way to check this is by using a volt meter. And check to see if there are voltages going to the starter solenoid, when the key is turned. It should be almost the same as battery voltage. If the voltage going there are no voltage going to the solenoid, or the voltage going there is low, for exmple 8 volts then the contact on the relay is bad. Remember this is if the relay clicks. If the click is loud, and coming from the starter itself but it wont turn, replace the starter, that means the starter solenoid is bad, or if you can buy just the solenoid it maybe cheaper, but you have to know how to take a starter apart, I dont recommend that tho. Good luck these should solve the problem.
