hello . How can I help you ? what seems to be the issue with your car ?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have a 2007 Mazda 3. FRenquently, the alarm goes off when you open the drivers door. This happens when the alarm is not on. I am hoping this is a problem that others have seem and there is a solution. We have lived with it for a while but it would be great to fix it. THanks.

does it ever happen from any other door ? is this a 4 door ?

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 12 months ago.

in this illustration it shows the driver door key lock cylinder switch . I would suspect this to be a likely suspect .

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I ask one more before a a possible call. Would a faulty switch cause the security alarm to go off? Would I be able to change the switch if so? I wonder if there is a YouTube showing how to change them. THanks.

does it only happens when you open the drivers door ?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
H'mm. We always are just opening the driver door. I'll try another door tomorrow.
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
ok, yes, the alarm also goes off when I open other doors. It happened with the front passenger and the back passenger. Thanks,
