Question about Mazda MX-5 Miata

How do i remove a carbine alarm from my 1994 mazda miata mx 5

I lost the remote... The aIarm "SEEMS" like would be easy to remove, I pulled the two long, rectangle connector plugs from the alarm, there's three or four more small connectors on the other side of the black carbine alarm box under the steering collum. they have two wires apiece that look like can be unplugged and plugged into a another connector that seems to be where they go. would someone who knows give me a heads up? I didn't look for the place where the two rectangle connectors go, but I believe they will plug into two matching recepticles? Please correct me if I"m wrong!!!

    hi Steve, I have another question for you, I would rather be safe then sorry... I pulled the box, and there's plugs on one side, one is 10 pin, and the other is 5 pin. On the other side of the alarm box is 4 plugs, 3 have two wires each respectively; 2 red in 1 plug, 2 white, 2 blue, and the 4th has 3 black wires. then there's a white wire looped into the alarm box, and a green one. what do from this point? There's a plug under the dash that "seems" like it's the one that these 5&10 pin plugs go to but the 5&10 pin plugs are rectangle, while the plug under the dash is a factory squarish plug, I believe that I have to match up the wires from the rectangle plugs to the factory square plug?

    Hi michael, have you established if it is a factory fitted alarm ie made with the rest of the vehicle or aftermaeket fit ,fitted after vehicle was delivered to the dealer ? this is impoertent as the two ways of installation are completely different, i done a quick goole on carbine alarm wiring diagrams so if you can give the alarm number as well a google search would probably get you the appropriate wiring diagram etc, is there any documentation that refers to the alarm with the vehicle as this would help establish when alarm was fitted ,hope this helps , in answer to your connector question i would say the 10 & 5 pin connectors should be matched and the other smaller connectors will be to the sensors,door light , horn/siren,this is why i say the different fitting factory versus dealer can be completely different,keep me updated with the vehicle

If this alarm was fitted after the car was made then these wires will make connection's to the vehicle's wiring 'you wont find a matching connection, just trace the path of these wires and i expect you will find that where they connect it will be where ONE wire has been cut and each end connected to the alarms wiring ie to cut the power to the injection/fuel pump to stop vehicle being started,one of these connectors will be for power supply and earth so check with voltmeter first then trace and dissconnect, a bit of patiance and all will be good keep me posted if you wish

Just forget about that plug! It will not unplug without plenty help! Check the connection at the starter solenoid. Check for power, cleanup the terminal, fire your baby up! Frankster016

I just bought a 1997 mazda miata with no manual i need to set the car alarm and dont know how?

The car alarm was not part of the car as it left the factory, it was fitted afterwards. You'd need to find out what make and model your alarm system is, at least the make, and google for an instruction manual of that alarm. The make could be on your key fobs, or maybe there are stickers on the windows?

1997 Mazda Miata button with red light lower left Dash

That toggle switch is for the security system. That year miata never came with any switches for the soft top of any kind. Most likely that is an aftermarket alarm system. Most factory alarm systems do not come with a toggle switch.

I lost the manual for my 1995 miata and i need to change the busted right headlight. can you please show me how. thanks.

There should be an access panel at the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the cover and replace the halogen bulb. Pretty easy job. Some of the covers screw off.
