Car doesn't start. Turning key in ignition doesn't do anything.
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.
I am having the same problem after replacing a battery in 2015 MX- 5. I was told that replacing the battery resets the key recognition chip in the computer on board the car. Dealer fix? I don't know at this point as I am still in the process of solving problem. Luckily I did pay for the extended warranty which should cover cost.
