#38 of 47 Can a new 2010 GT Smartkey/Fob be programmed for an 08?
Feb 18, 2011 (2:00 pm)
I have aquired a new keyfob/smartkey for a 2010/2011 GT with power liftgate. My 08' w/power liftgate is the credit card size smart card. Can the new style be programmed by the dealer to work with the old system? I have called about 8 dealers. Some say no, all say they have never tried, and half say it might be possible. Anybody have any clues?
#39 of 47 replace key fob door button

The little rubber button has come off of my drivers door. I've tried to search for any replacement instructions but have come up with nothing. Can't even find a part number. I've yet to contact the dealer, as this seems like it shouldn't be a complicated fix.
Anyone ever repaired/replaced that little rubber button?
#40 of 47 Advanced Key not working properly
Aug 04, 2011 (2:07 pm)
I have a 08 CX-9 and the advanced key is not working. I took it to the dealer today and was told that they tried to re-program the remotes but it did not work. One of the remotes will lock and unlock the doors, while the other remote will do nothing. I have to use the Aux key to start the car. The cost of new remotes is $850.00 not including the cost for a new key.
This seems like a Mazda problem, the advanced key should not wear out so fast.
Has anyone else had any issues like this one and care to share?

What if car battery died and car is locked? Is there a way to even open it if you have advances key system?

The advanced keyless system has a valet key you can use if that situation occurred.

#44 of 47 Sunroof and front windows open without a reason

When leaving car and closing driver's side door, both front windows and sunroof slide open. Also while driving, doors lock and unlock by themselves. Both situation happen occasionally.
Is there a way to reset these functions?
#45 of 47 2008 GT CX-9

My wife and I thought we both lost the smart cards, but luckily she has her smart card and the key itself.
We also have 2 remote start black buttons; but we did lose the other smart card so we are left with only one.
I found a smart card on ebay and it is the same one, but how do I program it when I only have one working smart card? I have seen programming showing 2 working cards needed but I don't have that.
Do I have to go to the dealer and pay a ridiculous fee for 10 minutes of work?

#46 of 47 Other Smartkeys

I noticed my CX-9 has a smart key ending in SKE11A01.
However I see a BUNCH of smartkeys with that FCC ID but with different button combinations.
1. shows a car on the trunk button (About $75)
2. Doesn't have a trunk button (About $100)
3. Looks just like my fob (About $200)
All have the SKE11A01 frequency.
Is there an issue with using another SKE11A01 card or does it have to be the same model.
And for Jared, No it's not 10 minutes of work. If you have a Mazda Key Programming computer you can do it too, takes about 1/2 hour.
It's not ridiculous, it's just a rip off on the price of labor.

If you press and hold down the unlock key on your Mazda CX-7 or CX-9 key fob, the front windows and sunroof will open. It's a built-in feature. Not sure when you would want to use it, but it's nice to know. Mazda doesn't go out of their way to tell you.
