What else could be wrong with my Mazda Tibute 2008?

Asked by Jun 02, 2015 at 06:50 PM about the 2008 Mazda Tribute

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes it will start cranking then all power dies then all power comes back on then it
finishing cranking and starts (all in one turn of the switch). I've had the battery replaced,
replaced the ignition switch, had the starter checked out which they say is fine. Now I
don't know what else to replace, check or anything. And everything that's been replaced
has been checked out to be fine . I've been to different mechanics for second options and
testing and they all say everything's good, that's been replaced.

On my 2005 I had a similar starting issue, it would crank long, then turn over. Then it got to the point I would turn the key to the on position and the SUV would start. My mechanics tracked it down to a 20 pin connector in the driver footwell panel, fender side. It was corroded. Took it apart, clean it up and all was good. Not sure the '08 is similar with the wiring, but worth a look.
