Customer Question
My red key light...

My red key light is blinking while the car is running. Every time I open a door while the car is on it beeps and the icon blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

The key exclamation light. It blinks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

2015 cx5

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CX-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing. I'm actually just sitting in a prkg lot.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

But it's annoying bc every time I open the door this happens. Then I have to turn off my car and turn it back on. Really annoying when I'm picking someone up
