Car doesn't start. Turning key in ignition doesn't do anything.

Asked by Jun 17, 2016 at 01:14 AM about the 2004 Mazda MAZDA6 4 Dr i Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright, so I went out to my car and when I opened the door, all the lights
were working. I even checked the headlights, and they worked as well. As
soon as I turn car in ignition, everything goes black and nothing works
anymore. A red light on the dashboard is the only visible light (Besides door
open if door is open) and the light has a key symbol in it. Anyway, I
checked my spare key and the same thing happened. I have no idea
what's causing this, and I can't take the car anywhere to get it checked out.

Have the battery tested it may be bad. Also check the battery cable connections. They need to be absolutely clean and tight.

I took out the battery and hooked it up to my grandfather's battery charger and let it sit for a few hours until it was fully charged. I put the battery back, making sure the cables were tight and correctly in place. I tried to start it and again, nothing happened.
