Hi, my name is ***** ***** certified automotive professional with over 25 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this.
This may be caused by the sensor on your ignition key.
Do you have a second key you can try?

Only the valet key. I tried it and it didn't work any differently.
Mazda Mechanic: Randy, Technician replied 3 years ago
okay. The valet key will start the car if the other key is bad. Try this next please.
Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light should quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start.

I will try this but I won't be able to until after work today. Will I still be able to get in touch with you around 6pm tonight? Also, will there be an additional charge if I do?
Mazda Mechanic: Randy, Technician replied 3 years ago
no extra charge. Let me know if you need anything. You can come back to this page/screen anytime.

Hey Randy, that didn't work. Is there any other things for me to try?
Mazda Mechanic: Randy, Technician replied 3 years ago
okay, You can try disconnecting the battery with the key on. Wait 1 min and reconnect the battery with the key on. If the vehicle will still not start and theft light is flashing, you will need to get it to a Mazda dealer for diagnosis. They will have to check for fault codes stored in the module and diagnose what is causing the concern.
