Re: how do i program a new ignition key (chip) for a 2000...
For ford or mazda cars, to program a key that isn't programed, you need two programed keys, if you don't have two programed keys, you have to go to the dealer and they must program the keys for your car. I hate to say this isn't cheap to do. I just had a key made for a 2002 Ford Focus and it cost me $65.00 for the keyblank and the programing of the key. I don't know of any way to bypass such a system on these type of cars.

Often, you need to press the unlock button on the remote twice. First press unlocks the door and second press disables the immobiliser and allows the vehicle to start. The key alone will not start the vehicle.
Alternatively, when the key is in the ignition - press the remote unlock again.
The remote acts as an immobiliser device. The reason your car won't start on the key is probably because the system won't allow any key in the ignition - it is preventing theft of the vehicle. Once the unlock button on the remote is pressed the system then recognises that key is the legitimate one for the vehicle and the disables the immobiliser and allows you to start the car
It probably wont start. Im guessing, but you probably have a chip in the key that you lost, and the copy you made or had made doesn;t. Those keys are for getting in your vehicle, and won;t start it. Sorry but the solution to your problem is that you need to get a chipped key, usually at your auto dealer. They are not cheap either. so i hope that this sheds some light on why your car wont start. Good luck~!!!
The clicking you hear is the vehicle asking for the program sequence to reprogram the locking system. Apparently something threw it out of sequence, ( a battery change , jumpstart, voltage spike , etc). The programming sequence that mazda uses is really kinda crazy. I was able to locate the sequence to try. If it does not work have the dealership flash the pcm, (another word for reprogram the powertrain control module). Here is the sequence:
1) Get in MPV with ignition key, and all fobs for the vehicle.
2) Close all doors and remove ignition key if it is in ignition.
3) Open driver's door
Note: Steps 4 and 5 must be completed in under thirty seconds.
4) Repeat the following three times
a) Insert ignition key
b)Turn ignition switch to on and then to lock
c) Remove ignition key
5) Repeat the following three times
a) Close driver's door
b) Open driver's door
Locks should all lock and then unlock within a couple of seconds--you'll hear the clicking sound
6) Press any button two times within five seconds on fob being programmed.
Locks should again lock and unlock
7) Repeat step 6 for all other fobs being programmed. When done with last fob, wait a few seconds and then you should be done with the reprogramming. Each fob should now work for this vehicle.
new key will not have the chip inside to turn the immobilier off you need to take the old key apart and there is a black chip inside next to the key part. and put this in the new key. they should of done a copy of the code for the new key when it was cut.
without the key you cannot remove the cylinder you will have to cut it off and renew the whole lock also the car will need to be re-programmed for it to start as this vehicle has a chipped key and the immobilisor will not release ,their is a way you de -activate the alarm by turning thedrivers door key so many times to the left then the right and so on but you need the original paperwork to get this information ,just order a new key from the chassis number then breakdown truck to dealer for programming and get two keys while your at it ,the chip is in the remote fob on this vehicle for this year if remember rightly so you may think their is no chip in the key but its in the remote fob and if you locked car with remote then you cannot release it without the fob .Sorry to be such a bore
you can use the sbb key to copy a new one, Before running SBB key programmer, please insert the blank new key into your car keyhole;turn on ignition switch;Insert SBB 16-pin interface into your car OBD2 diagnostic seat. SBB key programmer copies chip according to car model, and it program key not clone key, it only needs to insert SBB. It is easy to do, you can DIY, if you don't know about the knowledge of the car repair, you need call for help of locksmith....
Okay, to program a key you will need two keys that are already programmed, insert one key ignition turned on and engine off, remove the key and within 10 sec insert the second key and turn ignition on with engine off, remove that key and within 10 sec insert the key to be programed. you will need to do a 30 min.relearn with only one key,you will turn ignition on with engine off and wait about 10 min until light goes out then remove the key and repeat this step when light goes out repeat step one more time then use key to start car, computer has learned all info. you will now turn off engine, insert programmed key turn key on engine off then remove the key and insert key to be programed within 10 sec.all done good day.
I was browsing unsolved problems. If you still have the problem, I'll try to help you. But it's going to be awhile trying to communicate back and forth. First...Check the engine for spark. Take off a plug wire and stick a screw driver in the wire end and place the metal part of the screw driver next to something on the van that's metal. Have someone crank it over for just a second or two and see if a small spark jumps from the screw driver to the metal part. I'll check back for your answer.
