Question about 1997 Mazda Millenia

1 Answer

MAZDA mILLENIA 1997

My son has a 1997 Mazda Millenia and when you take the key out of the ignition, then open the door on the drivers side, the sound keeps going as if you left your lights on or didn't take the key out, whatever. I have checked everything, the trunk door is locked the windows all closed tight, the interior lights are off, not sure what it could be, I do know the anti theft light usually goes on after locking the doors and it is not lighting up. Also when i try to lock the doors with the auto locks on the door, it pops right back to unlock, Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?? Could it be a fuse or something? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, a concerned Mom

    My car could only be locked and unlocked from outside of the passenger door, also now I am locked out as none of the locks will unlock, I can't even open my hood to check the fusebox and battery

Take some "electoclean" spray and hose down the key slot ( 4 bursts). Then spray the key and insert to work it around. My car did the same thing and it clears the beeping noise and allows the security system to engage.

SOURCE: Door won't lock and alarm keeps sounding

It's always a good Idea to check fuses first, as that is the easiest thing to fix.  I would suspect if its not a fuse it may be the door open sensor, if you open the door there should be a device in the door frame of the car where the door connects to the car door hinges.  If you push that sensor in with your finger it should turn off the interior lights.  It may be wiring to that sensor, or the sensor itself, also the sensor may have worn out to the point where it does not push in enough to activate the switch anymore.  good luck.

Is there a button to push to open the gas handle to put gas in the car for a 1998 Mazda Millenia?


I have never sat in or viewed a Millenia interior but i would start by looking on the lower drivers side door jam(interior) for a button or small lever to pull. Also inspect the drivers door panel for a button to press. Check the area around the hood latch for a lever to pull. Hope this is helpful.

Either pull the lever located near the driver seat in the vehicle, or get a flathead screwdriver and gently pop it open if your pullstring on the lever is broken.

The tumblers have wore down and won't let the key turn. At this point you need to have the tumbler set replaced.
