Customer Question

Hi, I have a Mazda MX5 G reg. has been stood all winter, just been to start as I do every spring. Have charged the battery but can't get the ignition to switch on.
The head lights and covers work, but no side lights, horn, hazards or ignition.
I have looked for a master fuse or something but unable to find anything.

Any thoughts please??

I'd check the state of the main power relays in the fusebox under the bonnet

pull them out one at a time and inspect the contacts for corrosion and or burned contacts

and do the same for the high power fuses

so you check the ones for the ECU and fuel pump power supply and the main power feeds
