Mazda Repair Questions? Ask Mechanics for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** for the question. Though this can be caused by a couple of different things, it is usually a key issue. You need to try your extra key. If the problem persists then you have a programming issue in the control module. This is a common problem. Try holding the key close to the steering column before trying to start it. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
It is possible that someone tampered with the door and tripped the anti theft in the car. If it no longer can work the lock then the car may have locked down.
