#2193 of 4030 Please help - Remote programming
Nov 15, 2002 (6:49 am)
Hi all, I have 1996 Mazda Millenia P
trying to program the keyless remote control and can't get there. I found the instructions in article #1929.
I can't get the car to beep once (confirmation that its ready to program the remotes after step 4). I have seen another set of instuctions that says that key needs to go to ON position and does not have step 1 altogether.
Can someone please post instructions for year 1996? I would greatly appreciate it.

after seeing the 6 today, I must say I like it a lot, but that said, if anyone is on the fence deciding between the Millenia and the 6, don't worry about passing on the 6 and getting the Millenia....The Millenia seems a bit larger and more luxurious in comparison. Since good deals are to be had right now, you could get a well appointed Millenia for the price of a 6. That also said, the 6 will no doubt be more sporty and a more 'engaging' car. I did not drive the 6 but sat inside one and I thought the materials were quite good overall, but the car did not have the same feel as inside the Millenia. The Millenia is softer and the 6 has some BMW overtones. The 6 feels smaller, even if its about the same size.
I guess what I am trying to say is Mazda fans have a good choice right now, and just go with where you feel. If you like the comfort oriented feel of the Millenia, get your hands on one while the deals are good!

The 6 is larger on the inside. That was one of the Millenia's drawbacks from day 1.
#2198 of 4030 95 Millenia coolant leaking problem
Nov 18, 2002 (9:43 am)
I have a 95 Millenia with about 110k miles. Recently, I smelled something like coolant burning under the hood when the engine was hot. I checked the coolant reservoir and found that the coolant level was at the bottom of the reservoir. Then I added some coolant (this was probably a very stupid move). After turning on the engine, those added coolant disappeared after a short time ( less than 1 minute). However, I didn't see any coolant puddle on the ground. Can anyone tell me what happened to my car? how serious would it be? What are the right steps to fix it?
Thanks in advance!
#2199 of 4030 Advice: uncorrected wheel alignment on 2002 MM
Nov 18, 2002 (10:46 pm)
I have a 2002 Millenia P, and I have been experiencing a problem with the car pulling to the left when I drive. I took it to a Big O Tires Shop (national chain) in Petaluma, CA. They said they fixed the problem, and although the severity has lessened, the pulling still occurs.
I then took it to another Big O Tires shop in San Francisco (only because of my schedule was more convenient to do so) and they found that the alignment was fine, but the tire pressure was definitely low (funny how that wasn't checked at the previous shop).
Anyways, the first repair was just done recently on Saturday (11/16/02) and the second repair was done today (11/18/02). Needless to say after each repair the pulling to the left has lessened, BUT STILL EXISTS!
At this point, is there a reason to just take it to a Mazda Dealership and have them take a look at it--for warrantly related issues? Does it cost anything for Mazda to take a look at it, especially under the circumstances?
Any comments, suggestions, advice would definitely be appreciated.
#2200 of 4030 Pulling to Left
Nov 19, 2002 (3:43 am)
granado87, I own a 2001 P that I rotated the tires on yesterday at 7445 miles. I test drove it and it tracks straight as an arrow. I have never experienced anything but perfect straightline performance at any speed up to and over 110 MPH.
Now to the point. Your new Millenia carries a bumper to bumper warranty on virtually everything. I believe you wasted both your time and money taking it to anybody but a Mazda dealer where it would have been worked on free of any charge, plus a free loner car while it was being cared for.
By the way, improper tracking can be just as easily due to rear wheel alignment as front wheel alignment.
Do yourself a favor and take it back to the dealer where it can be properly checked out and repaired if necessary. You will have plenty of time to pay aftermarket retailers your hard earned money after your new car warranty runs out. For the 2002 models I think that is 50000 miles.

I would check with the dealer first to see if the alignment is covered under the warranty. This use to be the big complaint with all manufactures is that you would buy a new car and the alignment was out then take it back to the dealer and they would say you caused the problem therefore it is normal wear and you would have to pay for it because it is not a manufacturing problem. I do not know if they still do this but check first to possibly save yourself a shock.

covers alignment in the first 12 months of the warranty. This is common for most manufacturers.
