Mazda mpv 2003 power doors not working

It started when the key was stuck in the ignition. Then the powers doors stopped working. Eventually battery was drained and the key came out!!! After we had battery recharged the same thing happened again. Was able to take it to a "electrical" guy to fix the key problem not the doors not thinking they could be related. Electrical mechanic said transmission module was not working. He rewired and bypassed the module. Works fine now. But power doors are not working. Please help!

Try "resetting" your keyless entry code. Which is a fancy way of explaining that I broke my keyless entry key fob and had to order a new one. It came w/ instructions explaining how to get the new fob to speak to the car's computer. It was weird (turn key on and off 3 times, open and close door three times, etc. **I'm sure my neighbors were watching and laughing**), but it worked. I'll scan and email you the insrtuctions if you wish. Dan: dcarterlaw@lycos.com

SOURCE: mazda 2003 MPV door locks

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

SOURCE: 1996 Mazda MPV will not start

It sound like you need a new starter. I am not not sure why they serviced the distributor, but you mentioned the engine doesn't turn over. The only other thing could be a bad neutral safety switch or ignition switch. Have someone check the "signal" wire to the starter for switched power( power when you turn the key to start position). If power is present, I'd replace the starter. If not, check Ign. switch or neutral safety switch. I hope this helps

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done

How does the ignition interlock work on the mazda mpv 2003 ? I can't start the car without the remote control : Simply turning the key will not even crank, does nothing.


Often, you need to press the unlock button on the remote twice. First press unlocks the door and second press disables the immobiliser and allows the vehicle to start. The key alone will not start the vehicle.

Alternatively, when the key is in the ignition - press the remote unlock again.

The remote acts as an immobiliser device. The reason your car won't start on the key is probably because the system won't allow any key in the ignition - it is preventing theft of the vehicle. Once the unlock button on the remote is pressed the system then recognises that key is the legitimate one for the vehicle and the disables the immobiliser and allows you to start the car

Inside chime stays on a has killed my battery. I will only stop when I disconnect the battery terminal, but once I put the key in the ignition it stays on after I remove the key.


2 things to check, first ,, check the door switches, if one is shorted or stuck,, that chime will never ******* and will drive you insane !! if they all check out ok,, your going to have to get the ignition checked, its not fully shutting off ,, removing the chime won't correct this problem, and I imagine that unhooking the battery is quite a pain to do each time, I wish you good Luck with this problem,, let me know what you find works

2002 mazda mpv, key stuck in ingition and it is in park , but the key wont turn all the way to lock, it will only go as far as acc?


Mazda MPV have problems with failing gear shift change assembly ( includes park sensor micro switch)

Pull the fuse for the hazard lights ( 10amp) - if the key comes out, then the switch is defective.

Fix the problem by installing a new change lever assembly - part number for 2000 and 2001 MPV's is LC62-46-10XE with MSRP of $246.90. 2002-2004 would be a LD47-46-10XB with MSRP of $250.40.

96 mazda mpv minivan 165k mi. Ran fine until one day just died.Had towed home.3 mech.tried diagnose gave up wouldn't start-turns over-no start. Last mech.replaced timing belt&idle pulley. Still no...


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.
