I have a key symbol light come on on the dashboard and the car wont start now, please help, what dos it mean?


This is your security or anti-theft light. Check your owners manual first, but I have reset them on other cars by unhooking the negative battery cable for a minute or two, then using the key fob to lock and unlock the doors a couple of times. I believe your car has a microchip in the key, so make sure nobody tried to start it with a hardware store copy.

Have just purchased a 2006 Mazda 6 Atenza and noticed that there is a light on the dashboard that is continually blinking - it is a car with a key symbol in it. I refered to the manual but it is in...


This symbol is normally the car electronic immobiliser symbol and should not be lit once the car is started.

If it keeps on flashing and the electronic immobiliser is installed properly, it will prevent your car from being started.

Flashing symbols means immobiliser code is invalid or uncoded.
Hope the information is useful.

The security light has come on when starting the car,,,,now today the car wont start eventhough I seem to have all the dashboard lights working and the dome light works too. the battery symbol is lit as...


I have this same problem. Evidently there is some sort of malfunction in the security system. You have to put your key in the ignition and turn it on "on" for approximately 10 minutes. The security light will stop blinking, then go off. Turn the igition back to off. Now you should be able to crank the car. I have contacted alot of people about this and the only answer I get is they will not do a recall because it is not a life threatening situation.

There's a flashing light on my dashboard, it's an orange light outline of my Beetle with a key in it. Please can you tell me what this means?


That symbol stands for Electronic Immobilizer. Here's a summary of what the manual has on it... When the ignition is switched on, an automatic key data test takes place. The data test is confirmed when the warning light illuminates and then will turn off after approx 2 seconds. However, if a non-authorized key is used, the warning light will blink continuously and it says the engine will not start.
