Q: I'm having trouble with my security indicator button it sometimes takes me 10 + tries to start my car

asked by on

So when I turn my key to the on position and then you press your ignition lock button, 90% of the time I have to do it up to 10-20 before it will start my car. I changed the batteries that's not working. As well as it seems like the actual system on the inside is loose and it's not getting good connection. Is this a possibility? Do you guys sell new ones

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there. There are many electrical, ignition and fuel system components that can create similar starting issues as opposed to a security system. In most cases, if the security system is malfunctioning, it will prohibit starts entirely; as it will disable the ignition system. You problem is more likely an ignition system or fuel restriction issue. The best way to diagnose your Mazda’s problems is to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection.
