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?

Re: Flashing red light when I pull my keys out of the...
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.

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/ Keyless Entry Remote Fob Replacement
Is this an issue with all 2008 HHR remotes??? Highly doubtful , probably the vehicles keyless entry system . Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having the keyless entry system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Do you know what a DTC is ?
The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors, or release the rear compartment lid when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Remote rear doors (Panel only)
• Vehicle locator/panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR

There should be a small screw on the remote if not just pry it open. it will snap back together.
You should be able to split the remote in half.
You can usually use a small flat blade screw driver to do this. You
should a line all the way around the outside of the remote. Gently pry
it open and replace the battery.
When you can see the CODE BAT, select your new battery HERE.

You got the Wrong Information! Go to Wal Mart and Purchase a "Bulldog Security Keyless Entry" System for your Car. It will cost you a Quarter of the Price and is Just asw Reliable as the Factory Unit! Got one on My Truck with Remote Start also and it works GREAT! Should cost about $50.00 Bucks or so.
