Warning Lights and Beep Sounds

System Malfunction Warning Light

If any malfunction occurs in the advanced keyless function, the KEY warning light (red) in the instrument cluster illuminates continuously.

CAUTION:
If the KEY warning light (red) remains illuminated, do not continue to drive the vehicle with the advanced keyless function. Park the vehicle in a safe place and use the auxiliary key to continue driving the vehicle. Have the vehicle inspected at an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible.

Refer to Starting the engine.

Ignition Not Switched Off (STOP)Warning Beep

If the driver's door is opened while the ignition is switched to ACC, a continuous beep sound will be heard to notify the driver that the ignition has not been switched off (STOP). Left in this condition, the keyless entry system will not operate, the car cannot be locked, and the battery power will be depleted.

Advanced Key Removed from Vehicle Warning Beep

Under the following conditions, a beep sound will be heard and the KEY warning light (red) will flash continuously when the push button start has not been switched off to notify the driver that the advanced key has been removed. The KEY warning light (red) will stop flashing when the advanced key is back inside the vehicle:
- The push button start has not been switched off, the driver's door is open, and the advanced key is removed from the vehicle. (A beep sound will be heard 3 times.)
However the beep sound will be heard continuously when the push button start is switched to ACC and the door is open due to the activation of the warning beep sound indicating that the push button start is not switched off.

- The push button start has not been switched off and all the doors are closed after removing the advanced key from the vehicle. (A beep sound will be heard 6 times. The volume of the beep sound can be changed.) Refer to Personalization Features.

NOTE:
Because the advanced key utilizes low-intensity radio waves, the Advanced Key Removed From Vehicle Warning may activate if the advanced key is carried together with a metal object or it is placed in a poor signal reception area within the vehicle.

If the request switch for a front door is pressed under the following conditions while the advanced key is being carried, a beep will be heard 6 times to indicate that the front doors cannot be locked.

- A door is open (door ajar included).

- The push button start has not been switched to off.

- The auxiliary key is inserted into the key slot.

Advanced Key Battery Dead Warning

When the push button start is pressed off from ON, the KEY indicator light (green) flashes for approximately 30 seconds indicating that the remaining battery power is low. Replace with a new battery before the advanced key becomes unusable.

Refer to Advanced Key Maintenance.

NOTE:
The advanced key can be set so that the KEY indicator light (green) does not flash even if the battery power is low.

Refer to Personalization Features.

Engine Start Not Permitted Warning

Under the following conditions, the KEY warning light (red) flashes to inform the driver that the push button start will not switch to ACC even if it is switched from off.

- The advanced key battery is dead.

Advanced Key Left-in-trunk Warning Beep

If this happens, open the trunk lid by pressing the request switch and remove the advanced key. An advanced key removed from the trunk may not function because its functions may have been temporarily suspended. To restore the advanced key function, perform the applicable procedure.

The system can be set not to open the trunk.

Advanced Key Left-in-vehicle Warning Beep

If an advanced key is left in the vehicle cabin and all the doors are locked using a separate advanced key, a beep sound is heard for about 10 seconds to remind the driver that the advanced key has been left in the vehicle cabin.

Perform the following procedure to restore the functions of the advanced key.
