also i can't call now
let's talk here

If the security light is flashing that means there is a problem with the anti theft or immobiliser system. You should take it in and have it checked out. It is giving you just a warning at the moment but eventually it could give you a starting problem.

what kind of problem?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
should i go to mazda service or i can go to normal mecanhinc?

Depending on the code present, it could not recognize the keyfob and not start the vehicle.

It will have to go to mazda. They are the only one's that can diagnose and program the immobilizer system.

does it cost a lot of money to meet expert at mazda?

I think they charge around 120$ for diagnostics, depending on the dealer. You should ask before you drop it off.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
this is not an engine problem or bettery?

Neither, it is a immobilizer/ anti theft system problem.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
but some people say flashing is normal if car is operating normally

No. The light is supposed to flash when you unlock the car. It should go off once you turn the ignition on.

within how many days should i go and check?
cuz currently i'm very busy.. hard to make a time

It is hard to say how long without knowing the codes but since anti theft is involved i would recommend as soon as possible.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what is anti theft mean?

It is the system that tells the vehicle that the right key is being used to start the vehicle. If malfunction the vehicle could think that someone is trying to steal the vehicle and the computer will disable the vehicle.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
then why should i go as soon as possible?? cuz car can be stolen ? or any other reason??

Not stolen, but if the anti theft system malfunctions then the computer will disable the vehicle and then it will have to be towed in to the dealer.

Do you have any other questions?
