#32 of 51 Lost Key / FOB
Jan 19, 2011 (9:39 am)
I have a 2010 Mazda CX-9 (I forget which package -- it's the middle of the three choices). Our key is the "switch-blade" key that goes into the FOB. We have (had!) two of these.
Well, one of ours got lost, so we now have one working one. I need to replace the lost one. Is there a way to do this w/o spending $300+ from the dealer? I think I've read that I could get one that is unprogrammed and uncut -- how would i get it cut and programmed? Would the one I already have still work, or do they both need to be programmed?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
#34 of 51 Unable to lock/unlock doors
Feb 09, 2011 (1:17 pm)
Hope to find a solution from you guys!!
Since last week I can't lock the doors of my 2008 CX9 neither with the FOB or with the black botton on the door. At first I thought it could do something with the battery in my smart key, so I changed it. No luck, the problem persists. What is funny is that I can open the trunk and start the car as normal (with FOB).
Whenever I try to lock or unlock the doors with the FOB it just doesn't work and when I push the botton on the door to lock it I just get 6 beeps. The only way to lock the doors is by the using the auxiliary key
Have you heard anything like this? Any Idea how to solve the problem?

Likely the sensor inside the driver's door is broken.
Have you tried the passenger's side? Does it work on that side?
You mentioned that it works at the hatch, which means the ECU still knows your fob (which is good...)
#36 of 51 Locked out by remote start
Feb 22, 2011 (8:04 am)
Have an 08 with advanced keyless credit card (with all symbols worn off!) and factory remote start.
Recently was locked out by the remote start and could only get in by calling AAA and 'jimmying' the lock. (Long story about the 'key' falling out of the fob)
This is how you do it if you want to :
1 stop on level ground.
2 leave in Drive and turn key off as far as it will go. (Rookie driver did this!)
3 get out.
4 come back later and start with remote start.
5 BAM! locked out and will not respond to any command. Totally ignores you. When you press the button on the car, it senses on the fob by the redlight, but doesn't do anything.
Anybody else either duplicate this or know a work around.
#38 of 51 Can a new 2010 GT Smartkey/Fob be programmed for an 08?
Feb 18, 2011 (1:00 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 51 replace key fob door button
Jul 10, 2011 (8:35 am)
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 51 Advanced Key not working properly
Aug 04, 2011 (1:07 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?
#41 of 51 What if car battery died and car is locked?

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