Mazda CX-9 Keyless Entry

    Thanks for your prompt reply. You are correct I got them under warranty. Yes you are right about the area of keys etc on a chain being too small to block emf from the card. However the card EMF could be generating spurious fields on the keys over time that would eventually partially interfere with the card field????????????

    Each of the keys have fallen out (and are gone) of the card (2007 CX-9). My dealer tested another key in each card and said that they were "not loose". I am furious--this should not happen! Despite the fact that the keys are no longer under warranty I think Mazda should cover the replacement cost, but the dealer (Wellesley Mazda, Wellesley, MA) refuses to do so.

    2011 CX-9 GT

    Live in a god area. Very seldom lock my car doors.
    I keep the key Fob in a zipped up jacket pocket.

    Yesterday, I tried locking the car by pushing the door lock button on the
    Door panel. It keep pooping back to unlock.

    Any way to lock the doors with-out using the fob. ?
  • 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.
  • I thought when you walk up to the car with FOB/SMART KEY in HAND and hold the black button down it would unlock the doors....well it works on the driver side BUT not on the pass. side; it flashes, beeps etc BUTdoes nothing???? I ALSO read that I thought you could program the car to LOCK after 30seconds when you walk away from the vehicle?help plz, dog doc, atlanta YES I read the manual PS what models had the AUTO REMOTE start, was that a factory or AFTERMARKET option.? :confuse:
  • 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?
  • 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?

    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...)
  • 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.

    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?
  • 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.
  • wdhytewdhyte Posts: 92 09 came with a KEY...yes i know, old school...but it works.
    check the credit card lookin thing that is the remote key lock/unlock/panic and you'll see it comes apart...there's a key in it. look at the door of the car...

    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?

    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?

    Please help!!

    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. :)
  • Did you ever get an answer? I have an 08 too, and hate the credit card remote.

    I have the same issue with my 2010 CX9. Was this issue part of a recall? How did you get this issue fixed?
