How to Reprogram a Mazda Key Fob

Updated February 21, 2017

Mazda vehicles are among the international cars that offer keyless entry capabilities. This technology allows you to wirelessly control a number of your car's features. Once you program your remote, or reprogram with the same process, you can control your door locks without fumbling with a key, can open your boot with hands full or even sound your panic alarm in the dark or in a busy car park.

  1. Sit in the driver's seat of your Mazda and make sure that all of the car doors are closed.

  2. Open the driver's door and insert your key in the ignition. Cycle the key to "On" and then return it to the "Off" position.

  3. Repeat the previous step two more times, for a total of three cycles, and remove the key from the ignition. Wait for the doors to click.

  4. Press any button on your remote within 40 seconds and wait for the locks to click on and off again.

  5. Push the driver's door frame button once you are done, and the locks will click two more times. This will indicate the end of the process.
