Mazda 323 BA automatic gearbox problem

Hallo! HAve Mazda 323C 1.5i, 65kW, 1996, imported from Germany to Croatia with automatic gearbox. Recently I had a problem: Normaly alone and with no heavy load no problems at all, runs and works excellent, but ten days ago, four persons and full trunk load I faced a loss of power, and sound like a worn clutch plate problem of mechanical gearbox! I suppose that there is no ordinary clutch plate and pressure plate, that is operated by oil pressure inside gearbox, what could couse a problem and is it expensive to order and install?. In Croatia probaly only few automatic gearbox cars, and not sure that any mazda service can detect and solve the problem! not even thried!
Gearbox oil is clean and proper level, car still runs Ok on normal speed and road conditions, but uphill and full gas pedal pressed, it does not switch gears as normal on 4.500 rpm tops to switch and run faster(up to 5000 rpm and no shifting at all) ! Is there any gearbox oil filter partly blocked or overload sensor blockade? Car has 170 000 km and nothing about gearbox is changed! apsolutelly no technical problem with car what so ever yet!
is any tech details of gearbox available?

My mazda 323 familia automatic transmission is not changing gears.

Use a scanner to confirm whether you might have a fault on the automatic gearbox,or the gear box ecu is not working or the gear box is un serviceable and needs replacement.

I need a 1998 mazda 323 ba immobiliser bypass key or another solution to start my car. Can anyone help me?

I know this question is old but I recently encountered a similar problem with my 1995 323 BA and this may help someone else. Override the immobilizer by doing the following:

open the car via the drivers door
put the key in the ignition
turn the key to ACC
now turn the key to ON
repeat the last 2 steps X 12 quickly (ignore the indicators flashing and the central locking activating).
the dashboard should be lighting up as normal.
Now turn the key to START
