Troubleshooting / Re: Accelerator Pedal Sticking

owd git,

Sounds like its sticking, there are just two pots in it to give the throttle signal and springs to make it return.

Worth some lubricant before you buy a new one ?

Try moving it by hand to see if you can feel a tight spot or if one of the springs has failed ?

Troubleshooting / Intermittent fault - car won't start

Morning.  I have a Mazda 2 Sportactiv.  Bought it used in Feb 2018 (19,000 miles).  After work one evening (2 months after purchase) I went to start it and there was nothing - not a clunk, click or anything.  The car had opened fine with the key fob, and it had full power from the battery.  Tried several times and nothing.  It was on it's last day of warranty so I called the dealership who arranged to have it recovered the next day.  The following morning when I went to work, I went into my car  and tried to start it and it started with the first turn of the key, and many more times thereafter.  It was still recovered and taken to the garage later that day anyway.  They said after checking it, it was a faulty battery cell and changed the battery.  Every occasion since then, it has started, no issues - until Saturday night.  Went to drive home after a party and the same issue again - nothing, no clicks, clunks or any indication that it wanted to start - again, full power from battery.  Tried it several times again and nothing.  I left it in the car park overnight to arrange recovery the next day.  I went up the following morning and the same happened as the previous time - started first time with the turn of the key!!!!  I drove it to the Mazda dealership and that's where it's currently sitting.  Any ideas / help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you

Hi peeps,

newbie here and got my bragging shoes on!

Couldn't pass up the opportunity to mention that I was looking for a run around for Mrs kellys_eye and came across a 2005 Mazda2 that had been SORN'd since 2011.  It has 31,000 on the clock, had passed all its MoT's with only worn tyres as a 'failure' and was still a runner!  Dud battery (of course) but when jump started simply dropped to a purring idle.  Drives perfectly, no rattles etc but the brakes are shot - front disks rusted to flip (with a 'uck') and the central locking and rear boot don't work.

The biggest issue it has is that it's missing the seat back (right rear - behind driver) for some reason that we could never fathom and the original owner wasn't able to assist...... sigh.

Best bit - cost ?125  8)

A few days and a few ? and Mrs should have a reliable run around and stop griefing me (for a bit)!

But - does anyone have a seat back they can sell me?  Prefer a blue one but 'anything' will do at a pinch.

So, can anyone beat that for a bargain???
