Thanks for any response! I have a Mazda MPV with 3 keys and no remotes. I have never had a problem with the alarm working, setting or disabling. I lock the car with the key and the alarm sets. When I go to unlocak the car the alram is no longer disabling. When I turn the key to lock or unlock the alarm goes off. I have tried several opetions to disable the alarm with the key, trying them in the passenger door, ignition etc. None of which stops the alarm from activating. So my neighbors are getting a little short fusedas I am trying todisable the alarm or at least figure out a way to get it to go off when it is active. Any ideas?

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.
Is the 3-button remote from Mazda too? If it is and it's from the same year range as your MPV it may work. In other words, many car makers used the same type of keyless remotes on all their vehicles in a given year range. But if the 3-button is much newer or older you're probably out of luck. You can search on Ebay to see what types of remotes were sold for your year car.
If this is NOT a Mazda remote and neither was the 4 button they may use a different frequency (think 'radio station') and won't 'talk' to the car's keyless remote compuer.
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.
Does the remote do anything at all? Lock/unlock doors etc.? If not it's likely that the remote needs to be reprogrammed (can be done easily with online instructions) or the obvious: the battery is dead.
if you do not here the motor then its the regulator or motor that needs to be replaced/ cif you hear the motor check the control switch on the trim panle coould be just a five dollar part to replace/ Please rate my response thank you very much
