Keyless entry systems have become nearly standard accessories on vehicles around the world as of 2010, and this includes vehicles such as the Mazda MX-5. You can synchronise as many as four hand-held remotes to the transmitter in your MX-5. You can also set or reset the remotes yourself, giving you control over the car's door locks, boot release and panic alarm from inside your house or across a car park.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Enter your car and close all of the doors, except the driver's door, which should be open and unlocked.

  2. 2

    Insert your key into the ignition. Turn it on and off three times. Remove the key and press the "Unlock" tab on the driver's door three times.

  3. 3

    Wait for the doors to lock automatically. Press any button on your remote two times.

  4. 4

    Wait for the doors to lock again. Press the "Unlock" tab on the driver's door two times.

  5. 5

    Wait for two more clicks and remove the key from the ignition to end the programming sequence.
