Question about 2010 Mazda 5 1.8
About once a month, my Mazda 5 loses power while I am driving and shuts down. This happens regardless of the speed that I am going. Various icons on the dashboard light up and the key is in the "on" position in the ignition switch. I have to turn the ignition switch to off and restart the car. All of the icons on the dashboard turn off (meaning they are no longer lit). Mazda has been unable to offer a solution since their computer doesn't register anything wrong. Please help.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It is possible it may have had a keyless remote, and to find out get your VIN nimber and call a mazda dealership. If it did, and you want one they can probably order one for you. On the matter of the light flashing, that's normal. it's a security light, telling a car thief that without the origional key for the car, the computer won't allow the car to run.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. A technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. When the light starts flashing the computer is telling you to have the vehicle looked at now before other problems happen.

If you remove the fuse for the flashers, the key will come out. I keep the fuse handy in case I need to use the flashers and I'll just plug it back in!
