no start replaced battery still no start . just a single click. would this be the starter ?
I would check the cables and the ground and main fuse/relay, next step after that would be to check the starter.
where would I find the main fuse relay? I have checked cables and grounds,
You can also take a multimeter and put the positive lead on the starter solenoid positive post and the negative lead on a ground and then have someone turn the ignition switch. If the meter reads 12 volts, then you probably have a bad starter solenoid. If you're getting less than 12 volts you can check starter relay, neutral safety switch, ignition switch.
The factory alarm might also be the culprit, it seems these factory alarm cause the same issues you are having. http://forums.mazdaworld.org/101-323-protege-protege5/46857-mazdaspeed-protege-won-t-start-2.html
