My wilfe's 94 Mazda Protege wouldn't start a few times. Turn the ignition and nothing. No clicking or anything. Then later would start. Also, stalled while driving. When it stalled, there was no electrical power either, check engine and oil light did not come on. Now it won't start again. I hear clicking like a dead battery. Do I need a new alternator? I'd hate to buy one, put it on and not fix the problem. I just find it strange to lose all electrical power while driving. That tells me it's not the battery although it's probably dead now too. I'm going to take off the alternator tomorrow and take it to Advanced Auto to have it checked. I hope that is the problem because I don't know what else it could be.
