TURNS OVER, BUT WON'T START

2004 Mazda RX8

Electrical problem
2004 Mazda RX8 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 48000 miles

Hello, My son bought this car last year and in the last 2 weeks he has trouble starting this car. It sat almost all winter but we did finally get it started put a new battery in and now a week later it will turn over but will not fire. Any suggestions? Have seen there are recalls on this car, but not sure if that is related or how to go about that process. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dave Kiefer

I checked for recalls on your car. There are 4.
1- passenger side airbag.
2- exhaust heat insulator
3-engine cooling
4- Front control arm abd lower ball joints
I also checked for TSBs, and there are several. The one that caught my eye was on " no starts".
You may want to check with your closest dealer on these. Hope this helps.
