  2. Program key fob on 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback with 2 other working keys?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I could swear that last year, when I lost one of my 2 key fobs, I found clear instructions to program a third key with 2 working keys. I thought "lesson learned" and that I would get a second key and pay the dealer price for programming it, and then I would get a third key to program myself. I...
  3. 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv key fob programming

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, first post from a new member here from Oklahoma, nice to meet everyone. Anywho, my mom has a 2012 Zoom Zoom 3 Skyactiv which has been a great little car.

  4. Key FOB Programming

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello, I just got back from the dealer having my backup key cut. I was told I was unable to program a 3rd fob myself and I had to pay them roughly $700 to have this done. I wanted both my remote start and key fob programmed. They also went into detail saying the remote start fob can only be...

    Hey all, I got a new keyless entry fob to replace my current unit that no longer has the LOCK function. I've been trying to get this thing into programming mode since summer to no avail.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I somehow got the Homelink programming to work the 2nd time with the remote garage door opener on the 3 sGT. Couldn't get it to work on our 2013 Miata GT.

  8. 2015 FOB programming?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Sorry if this has been covered before. I bought a 2015 Grand Touring hatch that came with only one FOB. I've seen how I can easily buy an uncut FOB/Key on ebay, but it's not clear to me from what I've read so far if programming it myself is going to be possible. Yes/no? Thanks for the help!

  10. Programming fob for 2010 Mazda 3

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I just recently bought a 2010 Mazda 3 and they only gave me one key. Before this one (approximately 6 months ago) I had a 2009 Mazda 3, also with only one key. With the 2009 I followed the online steps to program a fob myself and it worked perfectly. The same steps do not, however, work with my...
  11. Programming an Extra AKE System Key

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Does anyone have instructions or a link for programming an auxiliary key for the Advanced Keyless Entry system in the GT? I'm speaking of a spare chipped/transponder key - not a switchblade key, but the solid key that slides in and out of the AKE key fob.
  12. Key fob Programming

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and I'm about to buy a used 2013 MZ3 i Touring. The one thing I'm hung up with is that the dealership was only going to provide one "advanced key" (the actual cut key blade without any remote). After not accepting the car based on that, they provided another full...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Does anyone know if it's possible to program or tune the electronic steering to a stiffer/heavier feel? This was the first thing I noticed stepping into this car coming from a bmw, the steering is a lot and I mean a lot lighter. It just crossed my mind since these cars have an actual...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello All, I think my local shop broke my tire valve stem during a tire rotation, so I need a new TPMS unit. The shop offered to provide the labor, but I have to provide the TPMS unit. I purchased one online, but now they are telling me the dealer needs to program it. My question is: Do I...
