Question about 2004 Mazda 6

1 Answer

Flashing red light when I pull my keys out of the ignition

I just bought a used Mazday 6 2004 and it did not come with remote keyless entry. Should it have? I thought it came with every Mazda. Also, when I take the key out of the ignition to get out of the car, there is a flashing light that comes on to the dash with a picture of a car with a key in the middle of it....since my car did not come with an owners manual I have no clue what it means. Could someone please help me with this?

It is possible it may have had a keyless remote, and to find out get your VIN nimber and call a mazda dealership. If it did, and you want one they can probably order one for you. On the matter of the light flashing, that's normal. it's a security light, telling a car thief that without the origional key for the car, the computer won't allow the car to run.

I bought a 2001 infiniti i30 without remote, now that I bought a new remote and try programing it with no luck, I followed all directions multiple times. I don't get the second set of flasher


1
Enter your Infiniti, closing the door behind you.
2
Use your power door lock button on the driver's side door panel to lock all of the Infiniti's doors.
3
Complete this next step within 10 seconds of completing step 1:
Insert your key into the ignition of your Infiniti and pull it back out 6 times. You will be alerted by flashing lights when you successfully complete this step correctly. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, the system will not enter 'programming mode.'
4
Next, re-insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to the ACC setting, (immediately before the "On" position.) Within 5 seconds of turning your key in the ignition, push any button on your keyless entry remote. Once again, lights will flash when you have correctly performed this step.
5
Turn key to off position and remove key from the ignition.
6
Exit the vehicle and close the door to end programming mode.

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

Had car starter installed now the passlock light stays on. He took the key out while the vehicle was running. They disconnected the battery and hooked back up but that did not work.


Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) armed mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the armed mode, since the body control module (BCM) stores the CTD mode status in memory.
• To disarm the CTD System in arm pending mode, SECURITY indicator flashing and doors open, perform one of the following: - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle. • To disarm the CTD System in the armed mode: - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle. • To disarm the CTD System when activated, alarming mode. - Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter. - Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.
