Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Info was great but still not working. I checked all connections, Fuse is good. Tried reprogramming...
I do have a smart key.
I didn't, but I assume they are sinse all other functions of the remote work.
I checked the fuse... ok . The wires that wrap around the ignition switch are intacted.
Lights blink, door locks lock (if unlocked) everything except engine crank.
I did try moving the wire around on the ignition switch earlier. I will check the antenna wire tomorrow and get back to you.
what is the proper installation method?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX it tomorrow
I checked the antenna wires going to the ignition switch look good, moved them around no signs of rubbing.
The horn does beep once lights flash locks activate when the remote start is activated doesn't turn over unless smart key is inside the car.
At this point, either the module is not sending the antitheft signal or the antenna wire is not transmitting it to the receiver on the ignition switch.
Did you check all the fuses inside the remote start box?
Did you try unplugging all the connectors from the box and reconnecting?
What happened when you tried to reprogram the keys?
I had a new remote, It programmed fine. I will try unpluging the connections and plug them in again. Will let you know.
If someone reprogrammed what?
I only have 1 smart key. So that poses some problems acording to the dealer when I wanted them to fix it.
When you said you reprogrammed remotes I was thinking you were talking about the Smart Keys. I know you have to have both keys present when initially programming. This is to program without using the scan tool and so that the second key does not get erased.
Although I've never tried this, the dealer should be able to program the remote start as the second key using the scan tool. They would basically erase all key programming and then reprogram the "key" you have and the remote start as the second key. Have they tried doing that?
I only have one smart key. I have 2 remotes for the remote starter, that is what I programed not the smart key.
I'm thinking the modual may be bad. Not sending the signal to the computer.
