Question about 2004 Mazda 3
When inserting the plug before starting up the immobilizer fails to disengage.The immobilizer unit has got wet and probably needs replacement.Is there a way to overide the unit until its convenient to have the problem permanently repaired.
This depends on what model of car stereo is installed.
Ususally if there is any unlock code needed, this is printed into a sticker provided with car documentation, or into the car user manual.
Checking on the Internet I have found no unlocking procedure for Mazda rx 8 , this usually means that there is no unlocking code.
The best thing to do to ensure that your car stereo does not need any unlock code is giving a quick call to your local mazda dealer, they can check in their database and find out if the code is needed.
If the code is needed and you lost it , you will need to give the car stereo model number, printed on the service tag at the back of the stereo, to a car radio unlock service, this costs about $10.
If your stereo does not require a code, it will just restart.
Call a local mazda car dealer and enquire about the car stereo if you disconnect the battery.

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

I show immobilizers where only started in the 1998 accords, if you have a remote starter and they used a key in the box bypass all you need to do is find the box under the dash open it up and use the key
