Keys

WARNING

Do not leave the key in your vehicle with children and keep them in a place where your children will not find or play with them: Leaving children in a vehicle with the key is dangerous. This could result in someone being badly injured or even killed. Children may find these keys to be an interesting toy to play with and could cause the power windows or other controls to operate, or even make the vehicle move.

CAUTION

  • Because the key (transmitter) uses low-intensity radio waves, it may not function correctly under the following conditions:
    • The key is carried with communication devices such as cellular phones.
    • The key contacts or is covered by a metal object.
    • The key is near electronic devices such as personal computers.
    • Non-Mazda genuine electronic equipment is installed in the vehicle.
    • There is equipment which discharges radio waves near the vehicle.
  • The key (transmitter) may consume battery power excessively if it receives high-intensity radio waves. Do not place the key near electronic devices such as televisions or personal computers.
  • To avoid damage to the key (transmitter), DO NOT:
    • Drop the key.
    • Get the key wet.
    • Disassemble the key.
    • Expose the key to high temperatures on places such as the dashboard or hood, under direct sunlight.
    • Expose the key to any kind of magnetic field.
    • Place heavy objects on the key.
    • Put the key in an ultrasonic cleaner.
    • Put any magnetized objects close to the key.

A code number is stamped on the plate attached to the key set; detach this plate and store it in a safe place (not in the vehicle) for use if you need to make a replacement key (auxiliary key).

Also write down the code number and keep it in a separate safe and convenient place, but not in the vehicle.

If your key (auxiliary key) is lost, consult your Authorized Mazda Dealer and have your code number ready.

NOTE The driver must carry the key to ensure the system functions properly.

Keys

To use the auxiliary key, pull out the auxiliary key from the transmitter while pressing the knob.

Keys

Keyless Entry System

This system uses the key buttons to remotely lock and unlock the doors and the liftgate, and opens/closes the liftgate.

The system can start the engine without having to take the key out of your purse or pocket.

It can also help you signal for attention or help.

Operating the theft-deterrent system is also possible on theft-deterrent system-equipped vehicles.

System malfunctions or warnings are indicated by the following warning lights or beeps.

For vehicles with the type A/type B instrument cluster, check the displayed message for more information and, if necessary, have the vehicle inspected at an Authorized Mazda Dealer, according to the indication.

  • KEY Warning Light (Red)
  • Ignition Not Switched Off (STOP)
    Warning Beep
  • Key Removed from Vehicle Warning
    Beep

If you have a problem with the key, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

If your key is lost or stolen, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible for a replacement and to make the lost or stolen key inoperative.

CAUTION

Radio equipment like this is governed by laws in the United States.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

NOTE

  • The keyless entry system operation may vary due to local conditions.
  • The keyless entry system is fully operational (door/liftgate lock/unlock) when the ignition is switched off. The system does not operate if the ignition is switched to any position other than off.
  • If the key does not operate when pressing a button or the operational range becomes too small, the battery may be weak. To install a new battery, refer to Key Battery Replacement.
  • Battery life is about 1 year. Replace the battery with a new one if the KEY indicator light (green) flashes in the instrument cluster (for vehicles with a type A/type B instrument cluster, messages are displayed in the instrument cluster). Replacing the battery about once a year is recommended because the KEY warning light/indicator light may not illuminate or flash depending on the rate of battery depletion.

  • Additional keys can be obtained at an Authorized Mazda Dealer. Up to 6 keys can be used with the keyless functions per vehicle. Bring all keys to an Authorized Mazda Dealer when additional keys are required.
