I've followed the reprogramming steps for the Mazda 5 keyless remote. It gets through the step where the key is in the ignition and cycles through to lock and unlock. When I press the lock on the remote twice, the red light blinks on the key fob but nothing happens. Is the battery dead? If so, how do I open the confounded thing? I can get the key out but can't see where to open fob itself to change battery. Help!
I am a technition for mazda, and if the lights are coming on to the keyfobs, the batteries are fine. What procedure did you follow?
1. Take key out of ignition
2. Shut all doors
3. Open drivers door
4. Insert key to ignition
5. Cycle between On & Lock 3 times, leaving key in Lock
6. Close and open the drivers door 3 times, leaving the door open
7. The Locks should cycle.
8. Press the Panic button on the remote twice.

IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the remotes you
will be useing on the vehicle. Once you program the remote. all previous remotes that were
programmed will be erased from memory. The other remotes will not be functional until you
program the them again. 1. Remove the key from the ignition. 2. Close all doors. 3. Remove the "MALL PGM" fuse from the fuse panel. Use the legend on the fuse panel or
owner's manual to properly locate the "MALL PGM" fuse. 4. Insert the key into the ignition, and turn to the ACC position. 5. Turn the key to OFF and then back to ACC within 1 second. 6. Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters into
programming mode. 7. Press and hold the remote LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
IMPORTANT: After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful
synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime
that will confirm successful programming. 8. Repeat step 7 now for each additional remotes to be programmed including any existing
remotes. 9. Remove key from ignition. 10. Install the "MALL PGM" fuse back into the fuse panel and test remote(s).
Please note carefully that you must have one working remote before carrying out the following procedure. If you do not have the working remote then you have to consult the locksmith to reprogram the one with the help of a suitable key programmer.
1. Press LOCK button 5 times at 2 second intervals to resynchronize remote.
2. Insert key into the ignition switch. Turn ignition to the RUN position (as far as you can
go without cranking engine). Wait for ignition chimes to stop.3. Using the working remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote for 4 to 10
4. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK button and then
press the PANIC button ( on the programmed remote ) for 1 second and release both
buttons. A chime will sound to indicate that the remote programming mode has been
entered ( allow 3 seconds for chime to sound ).
5. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously then press and release just the UNLOCK button on the same remote.
A chime will sound indicating the remote has been programmed. Press and release
the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously and then press the UNLOCK button on
each new remote you wish to program at this time. A chime will sound afer each
additional remote is programmed.
6. Turn the ignition OFF and remove key.
7. Test Remotes.
This worked for me... Once the keyless entry receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information. You must then program all of the transmitters.
Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If you program multiple receivers simultaneously, the same transmitter could possibly be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver.
Perform the following steps:
Sit in the vehicle driver's seat. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. Close all of the vehicle's doors. Remove the MALL PGM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Electronic Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to the ACC position. Turn the ignition lock cylinder OFF, then back to ACC within 1 second. Open and then close any vehicle door. You will hear a chime when the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode. If you do not hear a chime, start again at step 1.
Important After 7 seconds, you may hear a chime confirming successful synchronization. After approximately 14 seconds, you will hear a chime confirming successful programming.
Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds. Repeat step 8 in order to program each additional transmitter. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. Install the MALL PGM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Electrical Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. Validate that all the transmitters that were programmed operate properly. Refer to Keyless Entry System Operation .
1. Locate the valet switch for your system. It's a small black
push button, connected to a pair of wires that are gray and black.
There's no telling where the installer placed it, or if he even left it
connected. But if it's there and you find it:
2. Put your key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" or "run" position (not to "start").
3. While the key is on, press the valet switch once and release it, then press it again and hold it.
Easy way is to Disconnect the main vehicle battery for a few minutes. When you hok it back up the alarm will start beeping every 5 seconds or so and this means it is in the "programming" mode. You can program up to 5 buttons at this time. SO press each one on each of your remotes one time and the alarm will respond with a loud BEEP. if you only have one remote to program just keep pressing the same 2 buttons till ou reach the 5 limit. Then it will stop beeping and you are set up.
There is an additional way to do it through the programming option of the alarm but you really need a manual to walk through those steps.
REPROGRAM REMOTES BY FINDING THE VALET SWITCH AND TURN KEY TO ON PRESS VALET SWITCH 3 TIMES PRESS BUTTON ON REMOTE PARKING LIGHTS WILL BLINK ONCE TO CONFIRM TURN KEY OFF DONT LET MORE THEN 5 SEC PASS BETWEEN STEPS
There is an excellent step by step guide at this web site:
Even though it shows a Sorento, your Sedona should be the same. Just look for the black plastic box under the hood marked "Diagnostics" and follow the rest of the steps. ** WARNING ** You are putting your car's computer into programming mode when doing this. Proceed at your own risk and follow the guide EXACTLY.
Re-programming Key Fobs By Redzman Tools Needed:
1 or 2 OEM Key Fobs.
1.5 foot of electrical wire, with ends stripped, approximately 22 gauge. (Jumper Wire).
Open the hood of your SUV.
Behind the battery on the drivers side is a plastic covered connector labeled Diagnostics.
Open the plastic cover on the Diagnostics port by pulling up on the edge near the FRONT of the vehicle.
Get your prepped/stripped jumper wire and place one end in connector 6 as shown in the pictures.
Run the other end of the jumper wire to the POSITIVE terminal on your battery, you can just push it into the little opening on there so it stays in place for a few minutes.
Get into your vehicle with your key fobs.
Put one key into your ignition and turn to ON position, DO NOT start your vehicle.
If you just have ONE key fob to reprogram, when you turn the vehicle to ON, hold the LOCK button down for 3 seconds, the lights on the dash will go off, and you are done. Turn the key off, disconnect the wire, and try the key fob.
If you have TWO key fobs to reprogram, turn the key to ON, hold the first LOCK button for 1 second, then the second one for 1 second. Turn the key off after the lights on the dash go off and remove the jumper wire. Test both Key Fobs.
KEYLESS ENTRY PROGRAMMING
Have all remotes for the vehicle on hand.
Make sure all the doors and rear hatch/trunk are closed during programming.
Only need to use 1 remote to get into program mode but all remotes must be programmed during the same session.
Each step must be completed within 5 seconds.
1. Sit in the car with all doors/trunk tightly closed
2. Turn the key to the ON position, marked by "II" on the ignition bezel so the dash lights come on, then within 5 seconds press the "Lock" button on the remote for 1 second or so and release the button.
3. Turn the key to the OFF position, marked by "I" on the ignition bezel - dash lights go off.
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times (A total of 4 times) - each step must be done within 5 seconds of the previous step.
5. Upon the 4th turning of the key to "ON", press the lock button on one remote, the locks will make a cycling sound (clunk), locks will NOT lock or unlock at this point, they will just make a noise. The system is now in programming mode. Do not turn key off.
6. Within 5 seconds of entering programming mode and within 5 seconds of each other, press the lock button ON EACH remote you are programming, for a second or so and release. This step needs to be completed within 10 seconds. Each time a remote button is pushed, the locks should cycle. Up to 3 remotes can be programmed.
7. Turn ignition completely off and remove the key. Step out of car and close door. The remotes should be programmed and should work. If you have a trunk/hatch release, the button for this feature needs to be held for a few seconds before the trunk/hatch will "pop".
