Charge battery back up. Read owners manual if you have it. Some cars with anti theft will not start back up once the battery has been removed or has gone dead. You may have to perform some reboot sequence in order for it to start again.

Battery was fully charged when problem first started and has gone dead over the following days so I don't think the battery is the issue.

Ken, i would think you may need to check your igintion itself,if it eat,s the battery,first thing you want to check is the source of power,all so if you may have a transponder chip in your key,weak battery might have burn,t the chip in it,reason i say this,is it won,t run.

i have a 2001 Mazda Tribute that did the same thing. Try spraying throttle with cleaner and replacing fuel filter, and be sure you have a hot battery. Hopefully, it's not your EMU, but look at that next.

My Mazda 2002 was running good but then I killed n when I went to start it again it cranked but was running like it had a vacume leak I killed it n now it will turn over but not crank
