    Hi, just purchased a new 2019 Mazda 3 sedan. None of the security features seem to be working - Blind Spot monitoring, lane assistance, etc. Anyone know if I’m missing something I should turn on? I’ve checked all the settings to make sure they are ‘selected’. Thx!

    So, either I'm being blind and missing this info in the car settings, the manual and uterly failing at finding info with several different search terms, or the info is otherwise escaping me. My wife came home today and said that work (state gov low security mental detention center) had issued a...

    hi, I've just joined and I'm seeking some advice. I have got a 2004 Mazda 3 TS2 hatchback. I'm hoping someone might be able to help or had the same issue? When I switch my ignition on and start the car, normally my security indicator light, goes straight off. Today I noticed it started flashing...

    I have a 2015 Mazda3 and today, for the first time, my security icon started flashing. It is the padlock intertwined with the car symbol, but I am not able to submit a picture in acceptable format for this forum. Why, all of a sudden, has this happened?

    So I got a 2008 Mazda 3 about a year ago now and it just started to have a really annoying issue. First thing is for some reason if i press the unlock button on the key fob, all the doors unlock and this has never happened before. Next there are times where after pressing the unlock and nothing...

    Yesterday, I found out that the security light (the light with the symbol "the car and the key in it") of my car still flashes even I take out my keys and close all the doors and already outside the vehicle. It still flashes until today. This never happens before. I checked all the doors, glass...

    Didn't have any problems with the car until today. No idea if it's the alarm/immobilizer, battery, or something else. It's a 2010 Mazda3. I'm hoping to avoid towing it to the Mazda dealership, although at this rate, it looks like I might have to. -Walked up to the car and noticed it took...

    Hey, I just picked up my new 2014 Mazda3 today and the only thing which is somewhat of a concern to me is thieves might be very interested in the infotainment unit. It would be nice if there was some way to remove it, but I guess I'll just have to deal with it. Has anyone else had any issues at...

    The security indicator light is blinking in my car and it won't go off. When I start the car it disappears, but when I turn off the car, it starts blinking again. It doesn't seem to affect anything, but it shouldn't be blinking. I've even disconnected the battery and that doesn't reset it...

    I have decided to upgrade the Stereo in my 2012 Mazda 3 Sedan (No Bose, 6 Speaker). I found the PAC AOEM-MAZ2 which is an inline Line out convertor. My big question... When I unplug the Stereo to install this adapter, will it make me enter a security code? My friend that was a certified...

    :confused013:Am trying to find best, reasonably priced securitysystem/remote start compatible with 2010 3 i touring sedan. Have wheel locks + the anti-theft engine immobilizer; the latter only helps if someone doesn't have the right key. Would like a noisy alarm with a LoJack + shock sensor...

    I'm considering a '10 Mazda3 but have not decided on whether I'm interested in the Tech package or not. I'm not quite sure what the difference is better the package's perimeter alarms and the normal anti-theft system. Can anyone explain the difference?
