If you have anything after market wired in like an after market alarm system or after market remote start system this may be interfering with these components operating properly.I have seen this before and had to remove the after market components and wire the vehicle back to factory to correct this here.If this is all o.k. and no after market component wired in let me know.
If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
Have you had the fault codes checked using a scan tool plugged into your vehicle that can communicate with all computers in your model here?
Have the codes come back at all after cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor?
O.k.,this is a difficult one for me to fully diagnose myself from here.
I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.
how is it going my name is ***** ***** try my best to walk you through a few different things on this car to help you further diagnos your vehicle. i started out working at a rotary specifc shop and have a good amount of experience with rx8's
dou you have a digital volt meter handy and a few basic tools?
on each door seem on the body side there is a small plunger switch which of course is the sensor for the door. if you take a 10mm i believe if memory serves you can pull iit out and check continuity of each on. i cant remember if when the door is open or if its close when it will show an open circuit. but as long as it switches between open and closed that will show each one is working.
just to clarify you said the door locks work with the switch and the interior lights come on when you open the door? just the doors wont lock or unlock with the key fob? thats the main issue?
to be honest it does sound like your keyless control module is inoperative and needs to be replaced. the rx8 did have issues with them not working properly.
i would if this was my vehicle replace the keyless control module.
it will need to be done at the dealership so the are able to program the keys. they car will not start if replaced by you.
if you have no further questions i would appreciate a star rating as this is how i am compensated from the site.
