Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Immobilizer System

The immobilizer system allows the engine to start only with a key the system recognizes.

If someone attempts to start the engine with an unrecognized key, the engine will not start, thereby helping to prevent vehicle theft.

If you have a problem with the immobilizer system or the key, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

  • Changes or modifi cations not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

  • Get the key wet.
  • Expose the key to any kind of magnetic fi eld.
  • Expose the key to high temperatures on places such as the dashboard or hood, under direct sunlight.
