Anti theft system/ keyless entry

Have a 2007 mazda 6i, since I have owned it the Key FOB has never worked, tried putting in new batteries and even got a new remote. Did the programing steps I got from much research for the new key and the car will not respond to the remote at all. Also is there any way to test the anti theft system, it does not seem to work. Thank you.

The best way and probably the only way to program the key fob is to have it done in a dealer service centre . I know that it is expensive but they have the CPU in the car and your key fob and the pair are programmed together

“CUSTOMER LEARN” MODE This feature is only available on domestic vehicles or those which have a U.S. country code designator. This procedure requires access to at least two valid Sentry Keys. If two valid Sentry Keys are not available, Sentry Key programming will require the use of a scan tool.
The steps required to program Sentry Keys with two valid Sentry Keys follows:
1. Obtain the blank Sentry Key(s) that need to be programmed. Cut the keys to match the ignition lock cylinder mechanical key codes. 2. Insert one of the two valid Sentry Keys into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch to the ON position. 3. After the ignition switch has been in the ON position for longer than three seconds, but no more than fifteen seconds, cycle the ignition switch back to the OFF position. Replace the first valid Sentry Key in the ignition lock cylinder with the second valid Sentry Key and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position. The second valid Sentry Key must be inserted within 15 seconds of removing the first valid Sentry key. 4. About ten seconds after the completion of Step #3 , the indicator light will start to flash and a single audible chime tone will sound to indicate that the system has entered the "Customer Learn" programming mode. 5. Within sixty seconds of entering the "Customer Learn" programming mode, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, replace the valid Sentry Key with a blank Sentry Key transponder, and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position. 6. About ten seconds after the completion of Step #5 , a single audible chime tone will sound and the indicator light will stop flashing and stay on solid for three seconds and then turn off to indicate that the blank Sentry Key has been successfully programmed. The SKREES will immediately exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode and the vehicle may be started using the newly programmed Sentry Key.

NOTE: The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Transmitter will also be programmed during this procedure. These steps must be completed in their entirety for each additional Sentry Key to be programmed. If any of the above steps are not completed in the given sequence, or within the allotted time, the SKREES will exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode and the programming will be unsuccessful. The SKREES will also automatically exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode if:

  1. It sees a non-blank Sentry Key when it should see a blank.
  2. If it has already programmed four (4) valid Sentry Keys.
  3. If the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position for more than about fifty (50) seconds.

NOTE: If you attempt to start the vehicle while in “Customer Learn” mode (LED flashing), the vehicle will behave as though an invalid key is being used (i.e. the engine will stall after two (2) seconds of running). No faults will be logged.
NOTE: Once a Sentry Key has been programmed to a particular vehicle, it cannot be used on any other vehicle.

Not 100% sure about Suzukis but on my ford the same happened to me and I had to program them at the same time. Hopefully this helps.

The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

SOURCE: 1999 Nissan Maxima will not start up

there is a chip inside your car key
some times gets damage or the car computer gets damage and no longer recognize your key chip
this causes the anti theft system to prevent the fuel injectors to open and the engine will not start because has no gas.

the security light stain on is your hint of what is going on.

I had the same problem on a 99 Nissan Maxima but i got the car running again what you need to do is replace the engine computer and then call a locksmith to reprogram your key to be recognize by the new computer i when to a lot of pain and suffer to get this solve.

before changing any thing make sure the plastic part of the key is not broken, if it is call your locksmith to make you a new one before changing any thing.

NOTE do not use a computer from a salvage yard unless you get to see the actual car it came from

if it came from a car than has the body in one piece do not buy it

its real hard to diagnose this problem and

chances are it came there because of the same problem you have.

if the car looks like it was in a crash the computer is more likely to be good.

but its always best to get it rebuild or brand new if you can.
after you change the computer call the locksmith to get you car key reprogram.

Do not use a computer from a 98 or 2000 because they will not work no mater what the salvage yard tells you they are to make money not to help you so it has to be 99 only.

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

How do I reset the anti theft system on my Suzuki XL7? A new battery was installed and messed my system up


which one.
radio antitheft
car doors. (alarms) Content Theft Deterrent (CTD)
or immobilizer.
say what messed up means.?
the CDC system must be armed with the fob.
is that failing? I can not arm the system or it will not disarm. on my command?

my guess is arming. fails

  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Exit the vehicle.
  3. Important: The system is not armed if the doors are locked manually. The keyless entry transmitter or the door lock switch must be used to arm the CTD system.
  4. With a vehicle door open, lock the doors by pressing the LOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter or by pressing the LOCK button on the door lock switch. The system will begin the arm sequence when all doors are closed. The CTD system transition to the arm delay state when the final door is closed. The security indicator will illuminate steady when in the arm delay state.
    If the keyless entry transmitter LOCK button is pressed after the vehicle doors have been closed, the system will transition directly to the arm delay state with the indicator on steady.
  5. The system will arm approximately 30 seconds from the time that the system has entered the arm delay state. When the security indicator transitions to flashing slowly, the system is armed.
    Alternately, if the LOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed a second time, the system will arm immediately, bypassing the 30 second delay.
if this fails try the Second fob.
if the 2nd fob fails, then pull the battery neg lug, for 5 minutes
and put it back.

the full system rules are in the book called, FSM
seen here, read it for who to diagnosis this problem if it continues
just 4 bucks to read all facts
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/10182-2007-xl7-service-manual.aspx

the book also tells you all things messed up with battery pulls.

good luck.

My keyless entry is not working. the lock switch in the car operates the locks just fine. my key fob has a brand new battery and the light blinks when I press the lock/unlock button. My vehicle is a 2005...

Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode


anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
  • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
  • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
  • hood switch
  • keyless entry remote transmitter
  • deck lid ajar switch
NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
The keyless entry remote transmitters :
  • Are programmable.
  • Must be set at the same time.
  • House four buttons.
  • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
Programming
Refer to Section 501-14B.
Inputs and Outputs
The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
  • Hood switch.
  • Deck lid ajar switch.
  • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
  • Door courtesy input.
The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
  • Power door unlock relay.
  • Power door lock relay.
  • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
  • Park lamps relay.
  • HORN relay.
  • Dome lamp.
  • THEFT indicator.
  • Deck lid release.
Arming
The anti-theft system can be armed if:
  • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
  • The panic alarm is off.
  • All doors are closed.
NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
Disarming
NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
Untriggered System
NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
Triggered System
NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
  • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
  • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
  • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

Fords "better idea"...go to an automotive stereo shop that does keyless entry install for around $89...it's the cheapest way to go anyway. Dealer will have to reprogram the FOB, you're looking at $100+

Remote keyless entry


I assume you are talking about the key fob. First, pry it open and change the battery. Watch which way the + goes.
If your key fob works, and the battery did not fix it, try reprogramming following the instrcutions in the owner manual. May need both fobs present at the same time.
Note; This is different than programming the anti-theft key.
