Mazda vehicles are among the international cars that offer keyless entry capabilities. This technology allows you to wirelessly control a number of your car's features. Once you program your remote, or reprogram with the same process, you can control your door locks without fumbling with a key, can open your trunk with hands full or even sound your panic alarm in the dark or in a busy parking lot.

Step 1

Sit in the driver's seat of your Mazda and make sure that all of the car doors are closed.

Step 2

Open the driver's door and insert your key in the ignition. Cycle the key to "On" and then return it to the "Off" position.

Step 3

Repeat the previous step two more times, for a total of three cycles, and remove the key from the ignition. Wait for the doors to click.

Step 4

Press any button on your remote within 40 seconds and wait for the locks to click on and off again.

Step 5

Push the driver's door frame button once you are done, and the locks will click two more times. This will indicate the end of the process.
