Very complex problem - Anti-theft car won't start
Hello everyone! To present myself a little bit, im from a northern region of Quebec in Canada and im an owner of a Mazda 3 2008 with only 91 000 km.
Im going to explain you the problem as detailed as possible.
This problem is intermittent... When I want to start my car in early morning (example), the engine won't crank at all when the key is on start. When the key is on ''on'', everything (radio and more) will show up. I will have the anti-theft light blinking rapidly on my dash.
To start my car, I let it sit on the ''on'' position for a couple of minutes. Sometimes 3 minutes, othertimes 10 minutes. And then, the parking light go on, I hear a sound in the engine, and the engine car can now be started up. Sometimes, after the engine started up, the anti-theft light is still blinking rapidly.
I can now drive my car, remove the key, leave the car for 3 hours and it will start up like nothing happened. The day after, in early morning, the car won't start up again... I most say this is winter in here. -20, -30, -40 celcius. The problem appeared 2 months ago. Theres is no scanner in my region to scan the code (if there's one). I tryed both keys I have, same problem is occuring. Disconnecting the battery while the key is on ''on'' position, heated the car in a garage. Nothing worked.
Any help is welcome.
