Asked by Michael Jul 30, 2014 at 10:14 PM about the 2004 Mazda RX-8 6-speed

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was backing out of my drive way
when I lost all power for my car, dash
stopped working and it no longer will
turn over to start. The radio also
does not work anymore as well. I
have no idea what occurred but it's
not good. I'm sitting at 123,000 miles
and just got the oil changed, any
ideas?

It's a electrical problem. (Yeah I know DUHHHH) Check your ground cables. Make sure that they are clean and tight. There are a few but the main one is the one that runs from the battery to the frame. Start there.

I'll check that in the morning, would I still have power to the lights if it was the ground wire?

Hmmmm. That's a good question. Try the ground straps in the morning. Look around 'coz there are a few. Let me know.

Check your main fuseable link, it should be under the hood in or near the fuse box.

Start where Michael suggested. It's easier and more likely.
