Best Answer

Other possibilities: Out of gas, or what happened to me once >>> Faulty powertrain control module. Had a similar problem with a 1997 Mark VIII. Good fuel pressure, good spark, good timing, followed Ford's diagram to diagnose this problem. All sensors tested good, so I replaced the PCM and had it programmed to the security keys, no start. Took off the EGR exhaust tube and it started, but rough. The catytic converters were melted. They were choking the engine out.

Mazda miata won't start could it be the clutch?

It could be the clutch safety switch. Does the engine crank and not start, or is it not cranking. If it cranks, then no, it could not be the clutch. If it won't crank then you can climb under the dash and look for the switch that closes when the clutch is pushed all the way to the floor (big white plastic switch). This switch has two large wires going into it. You can unplug the switch and jump the two female connectors in the wiring harness that led to the switch. A large paper clip works, but don't let it touch anything metal while you're cranking the engine. If the engine now cranks and starts normally, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Battery cables could be loose, battery could be bad, starter could be bad, starter solenoid could be bad, ignition switch could be bad. Turn on the headlights and try to crank the engine. If the headlights dim or go out look at the cables or battery. If they stay bright look at starter, solenoid or ignition switch. The neutral safety switch or clutch petal switch could do it too.
