MAZDA 626 ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

1998 Mazda 626 • 175 miles

I was driving one day and my car just died on me and started smoking where the alternator is and when I tried to start it, it sounded like the belts were just spinning and my battery would die after trying to start it so many times. My engine light was on and so was my oil light. I checked why the engine light was on and it gave me a code for a bad thermostat and there was enough oil. Could it be a bad alternator that isnt making my car start or could it be the fuel pump. Please help me. Thank you.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure also check for fusible links burnt by alternator.

There is no code for bad thermostat. What was the number?

Remove the belt and see if it starts
