I have same issue with smart key but found that my iPhone was the culprit. The key doesn't like the smart phone. If I turn off the cellular network, it works fine. ALSO, when I change the battery, the rubber sleeve that holds it in place must be totally pressed in on ALL edges....hope this helps.
To reset the key, (since smart phone disables it) you must take out the battery. PAIN, I know. But if you remember to keep phone away from the key, you are alright...

I concur. The keyless start on my '09 CX-9 has been the bane of my existence. I need a solution to this issue too.

Never put your key fob near your cell phone. The key fob won't work for a while after you remove the cell phone.

Had the same problem on my 07.
The window weather stripping is faulty and folds over in the corner losing its seal. I drive on the highway at 75 plus a lot and it is very annoying.
I tried silicone behind the weather stripping and it just came of. My fix was expandable foam behind the weather stripping to hold it out sealing it to the window. Worked great. Good luck!

I have the same issue on the front passenger door. Seems to come from the upper corner and happens to be right by your ear when sitting down. Can you post a link to a picture of your fix or can you email a picture to me. I'd like to fix it the same way you did, that wind noise drives me nuts.

I have a Mazda cx9 2011 it came with the wind noise, They ordered a part to fix it, I guess it was gasket on passenger door, it is better, but can still hear wind. now my brake booster went out around 37,000 miles.

I had a 2011 CX9 with unbelievable wind noise. I could even hear it at a stop sign in the wind came across from the passenger side. We had the windshield replaced two times, The regional rep from St. Paul, MN went for a ride and initially assured me there was a problem and it would be taken care of. Later he changed his story to say there was nothing wrong. I had a 2008 CX9 with absolutely no noise. I must have had this vehicle into two separate dealerships at least a dozen times, but no one could find the problem. They finally decided they had changed the shape of the exterior mirrors and was nothing that could be done. I traded for a 2012. This eliminated most of the noise, but I do still hear some noise. I dealt with a dealership in Des Moines and because of the attitude of their service manager over this, will never return. Between this manager and the regional guy, I was absolutely shocked! The manager actually argued with me in anger on the phone at one point!
#475 of 547 07 CX-9 RPMs increase at idle

to around 1k and up to 2k when the vehicle is placed in park. A new throttle body was installed and it had no effect on the issue.

Perhaps noise generated by air passing across sunroof (assuming you have one). There appears to be a design flaw here. Does it happen across all wind directions? If not, then probably sunroof.
#477 of 547 Airbag deployed for unreason
Nov 04, 2012 (5:39 pm)
Today, while driving normal speed on a fairly smooth city street, smoke started coming for the steering wheel. Not the column, but the little gaps between the actual wheel and the soft area. The smoke freaked my out, so I pulled over and got out. Closed the door and BOOM! my airbag deployed. Two minutes later my horn was sounding. The horn stopped but the airbag stayed inflated and smoking for quite some time. I did not hit anything, make a sudden stop or hit a pothole in the road. Completely random! Anyone else have this issue? CX-9 2007
I also had the rear blower issue. It was intermittent. The first two times I took it in, they said it was a computer problem and that the reset they did should fix the problem. You all know this wasn 't the answer. It came back and I was frustrated and just dealt with it. Finally, I was annoyed enough that I took it in, post 36K miles, to have it "fixed" and they said they couldn't because I was outside of the warranty window. Well, I made it clear that I wasn't leaving without it being fixed "no charge" because this has been an issue prior to the warranty expiring. I also came prepared with forum discussions like this with the solution so they couldn't say it was just a computer problem. That problem was fixed but not "solved" by the shop.
I also had a problem with the throttle body. From time to time, the rpm's would go up and down for no reason and when I needed to accelerate quickly, it wouldn't. I brought this problem to them six, SIX, times and each time they would say, again, computer reset. I was frustrated with my local shop and took it to another Mazda dealership and they found that the throttle body was cracked. I went a year with this issue before a shop diagnosed the real problem. That shop fixed it within two days and I have not had the same issue.
So, back to my original issue, has anyone had random airbag deployments?
