Hello -

As the previous expert has opted out , I will help you with your question..

Im afraid you cant get the code "word" - as per your question.. there is no such thing even with all the numbers etc that you have -

On this make / model of vehicle - the only way to program the system - key to car ( system ) is to have the car plugged into a Mazda or similar suitable diagnostic machine that will do that for you .

There is one other way - and that involves sending the module and key etc to a company that can do this with such a "rig" - but its generally done as above which is quicker - and the usualy way to do it..

Again just to repeat / clarify, it cannot be done in the way you are asking.

Im sorry , this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but that is the case with this system. They cannot be programmed manually / without the correct equipment.

I'm very pleased to have helped you - but do ask me if you need anything more..

Kind Rgds, MIKE

To get the code word you will need to contact your local Mazda dealership and prove ownership to the vehicle. They will need the vin# from the car and the serial# from the immobilizer unit. It only takes a few minutes for them to look up the code so they may not even charge you. Again... you will have to prove ownership.
