Mazda 2: Immobilizer System

Mazda2 Owners Manual

The immobilizer system allows the engine to start only with a key the system recognises.

If someone attempts to start the engine with an unrecognised key, the engine will not start, thereby helping to prevent vehicle theft.

If you have a problem with the immobilizer system or the key, consult an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

CAUTION

Changes or modifi cations not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

To avoid damage to the key, do not:

  • Drop the key.
  • Get the key wet.
  • Expose the key to any kind of magnetic fi eld.
  • Expose the key to high temperatures on places such as the instrument panel or bonnet, under direct sunlight.

If the engine does not start with the correct key, and the security indicator light keeps illuminating or fl ashing, the system may have a malfunction.

Consult an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

NOTE

  • The keys carry a unique electronic code. For this reason, and to assure your safety, obtaining a replacement key requires some waiting time.

    They are only available through an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

  • Always keep a spare key in case one is lost. If a key is lost, consult an Authorised Mazda Repairer as soon as possible.
  • If you lose a key, an Authorised Mazda Repairer will reset the electronic codes of your remaining keys and immobilizer system.

    Bring all the remaining keys to an Authorised Mazda Repairer to reset.

      Starting the vehicle with a key that has not been reset is not possible.

Operation

NOTE

  • The engine may not start and security indicator light may illuminate or fl ash if the key is placed in an area where it is diffi cult for the system to detect the signal, such as on the instrument panel or in the glove compartment. Move the key to a location within the signal range, switch the ignition off, and then restart the engine.
  • Signals from a TV or radio station, or from a transceiver or mobile telephone could interfere with your immobilizer system. If you are using the proper key and the engine fails to start, check the security indicator light.

Arming

The system is armed when the push button start is pressed from ON to off.

The security indicator light in the instrument cluster fl ashes every 2 seconds until the system is disarmed.


Disarming

The system is disarmed when the ignition is switched ON with the correct programmed key. The security indicator light illuminates for about 3 seconds and then turns off. If the engine does not start with the correct key, and the security indicator light remains illuminated or fl ashing, try the following: Make sure the key is within the operational range for signal transmission.

Switch the ignition off, and then restart the engine. If the engine does not start after 3 or more tries, contact an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

NOTE

  • If the security indicator light fl ashes continuously while you are driving, do not shut off the engine. Go to an Authorised Mazda Repairer and have it checked. If the engine is shut off while the indicator light is fl ashing, you will not be able to restart it.
  • Because the electronic codes are reset when the immobilizer system is repaired, the keys are needed.

    Make sure to bring all the keys to an Authorised Mazda Repairer so that they can be programmed.
