A couple months ago I threw a battery from my other car (an 88 Chrysler) into the bay and tried to start it. Nothing, no crank, no clicks. As a matter of fact everything electrical shut off. After checking all the fuses in the car (yes all of them) I could find nothing wrong and figured that when they tried to hotwire it, they shorted something I couldn't find. And since I didn't want to look for it, I gave up.
Resolved to sell it as scrap, a friend of mine said that he wanted to look at it first. We pulled his camero up and attached the battery to the terminals of the Mazda via jumper cables. Turning the key, expecting nothing, the car turned over and sputtered and died. IT'S ALIVE!
So, now, I'm going to fix it.

As an owner of an '88 626 automatic, I'm interested to see how this turns out. I'm gradually working my way into the mechanical-world of cars, and the story you started this story with gives it extra incentive to turn out well. Keep up the good work, man! I look forward to seeing how it all unfolds. Good luck.
