Only after market systems have valet over ride switches.
From what you said, the RX8 is shut down from
the factory immobilizer,
The IM05 bypass module is designed to circumvent this
but it's dependent on you having the original
programmed ignition key to do it.
Also, the system must not be damaged, or the code
lost from the keys or it won't do that.
Mazda may also need to reprogram the immobilizer code
for you to procede. Have that bit of info looked at
Well there is a fuse panel above the battery compartment (left rear of trunk) that removes with a finger twistable lever. In that compartment are some spade fuses and one maxi fuse. I DONT know if they are for the stereo speakers or not.
sound like the tuner it's self is going bad. Have you checked the antenna connections? Try holding on to the antenna when the radio is fading out. Sadly the radio is part of the stereo and not a separate module. You need a new stereo, get one with HD radio...you'll love it.
Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number from your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.
