  1. I finally locked my keys in my car!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I don't like to carry my keys and especially not the AKE fob when I'm fishing or paddling. I'm much more comfortable locking them in the car and just carrying one door key, but I haven't been able to do that with my 2015 hatchback. Usually I just left the fob in the trunk and left the hatch...
  2. Locked out of first

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I read through this thread and didnt find much about first gear, but what everybody is explaining is exactly what is going on in first... Sometimes I will pull up to a red light and keep it in neutral and keep my foot off the clutch. The light turns green and I try to shift to first and I am...

  4. Closed Driver Door Stuck Locked

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    The driver door on my 2005 Mazda 3s is stuck locked. I had walked back to my car and the key fob didn't unlock the driver door, all other doors responded normally. No clicks or any indication of an attempt to unlock the driver door. The door also didn't open with the key from outside or the...
  5. Keys locked in car.... while running

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I don't understand how this even happened. I have a 2016 iSport. Started the car to warm it up this morning, shut the door, heard the locks... So, the car continued running with the FOB inside and the doors would not open. Had to wait an hour outside in 12 degree F snow for a tow driver to...
  6. Car on but locked out?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    2017 GT 6MT with keyless entry and push button start. So this morning it was terribly frosty, I turned the car on like I normally do when it's frosty: clutch in, start, take it out of gear with the e-brake engaged and get back out to scrape. Of course as normal the doors locked when I walked...
  7. 2010 Mazda 3 AT shifter Locked in Park

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I've been away for 3 weeks while my car was having new ball joints put on both front wheels. Once I came back, the mechanic told me that they had trouble putting the car into gear after having it in park, which was weird since before I left, this hadn't happened before. I've been looking...

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    Hello, I've recently been having some shifter issues with my 2005 Mazda 3. A few weeks ago I started having issues with my car not being able to turn over. I noticed that the dash was not displaying the vehicle in "PARK". I was given instructions to use a screw driver in the interlock hole to...

    I have a 2010 Mazda 3 My horn got wet and it sounded muffled, I replaced it with a new horn and all was well for a few months. Then I started getting intermittent failure of the horn. Some days it would be fine and some days when locking the car it fails to beep. I have checked the horn fuse...

  11. Keep Car Running While Doors Locked - Is it possible?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Is it possible to keep the car running but walk out with the key fob and lock the doors while away from the vehicle? For instance you want to keep the car A/C running while you step out to get something to drink at the gas station but you don't want anyone jumping in and driving away.

    I know another member had an issue sort of like this. At the house I leave my key in my car, oh so bad right? Well from my understanding the car wouldnt lock itself with the key inside of it. I parked it last night about 10ish and just now when I went to go get in the door was locked. At first...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    :mad 1: So F***ing pissed off at Mazda and my car right now. Last night on the way home at one in the morning from a friends house in the middle of nowhere my worst nightmare happened. I gassed up then got back in my car and started it up. At that point I noticed that I had garbage in the front...
  15. used car purchase with voice passcode locked

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    How do I reset the voice passcode? I've cleared all the BT profiles and can use the phone, however voice commands tell me to say the passcode, and won't let me say "setup > reset" or anything. How do I get past this without going to a dealer?
  16. Door able to open in locked position?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just got an auto i-touring a week ago. I noticed I can open the driver's and front passenger's doors from the inside even when it's running while the doors are in the locked position. Wouldn't this be a safety issue? I took it to the dealer and they said it's normal and there's no way to...
