I have a brand new car. I brought it to a long-established custom shop to have an after market remote starter installed. It worked one time. Since then, the car won’t start at all, not from the remote starter and not from the start button on the dashboard. The shop was already closed for the day, but I called the support center for the starter manufacturer. They ran me through some tests and tell me the battery is dead. The starter clicks but the engine doesn’t start. The headlights and interior lights don’t work. They tell me the starter was mis-installed in some way that entirely discharged the battery. If using it the first time triggered the short, then it discharged within a few seconds or minutes.
Here’s what I’m worried about. That much power running uncontrolled through the car might have fried all the electronics, destroyed the battery, and Og knows what the Mazda dealer would say if I brought it there to be checked out and repaired if necessary.
