    Default Flip-key for mazda 3

    finally u can use a flip key for the mazda 3 ....

    here is what u need:

    -Transmitter from Mazda6 sedan, RX-8, Miata, Mazda5(they all work)
    -Flip key from any model (all the same part number)

    Pics courtesy of autoexe:










    and then u will have the follow the procedure below to program ur key and the remote

    **** programming the key ****

    Items needed:
    1. 2 pre-programmed transponder keys.
    2. 1 new transponder key

    The timing is critical to this procedure, please read through the entire procedure before attempting.
    Procedure:
    1. Insert one of the pre-programmed transponder keys and turn the ignition to \"on\", leave on for at least one second (I wait until the red key symbol in the instrument cluster extiinguishes), remove the key from the ignition.
    2. Within 5 seconds insert the second pre-programmed key and urn the ignition to \"on\" for at least one second but no more than 5 seconds (use the key symbol for this as well) then remove the second key.
    3. within 10 seconds insert the new key in the ignition and turn the ignition to \"on\", if you are successful the red key symbol will illuminate then extinguish after about a second.

    If you are not successful the red key symbol will flash repeatedly to indicate that you have inserted an invalid key. Remove the key, wait a minute and try it again, it took me a few times to get it perfect and I had done it before.

    ***** programming the remote *****

    Have all the remotes that you are going to be using, maximum of 3, with you when you do this programming as all of them have to be reprogrammed into memory.

    Step 1: Open driver side door and leave open.

    Step 2: Lock and Unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door

    Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

    Step 4: Turn Key to ON position and return to Lock (off) position. Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. LEAVE key in the ignition in Lock (off) position.

    Step 5: Close and open the drivers door 3 times. Leave door open after this step

    Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors once.

    Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

    Step 8: Additional remotes, repeat Step 7 for up to 3 remotes total.

    Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series (about 4) of door locks and unlocks. You\'re done!

    Hey Flipspeed,

    Can you also cut the blank key to match the existing one I have (if so how much for it) and do you have both the RX8 remote and the blank key in stock as I feel like being the guinea pig for this project?

    Thanks,

    I can cut them no problem but if you want to be the guinea pig be my guest.

    BTW, you have to prepay for the remote.

    Seems like an aweful lot of money for something that either hangs from the steering column or sits in your pocket most of the time, but hey, to each his/her own.

    if that\'s the case then we should just buy the remotes from \"remotesuperstore\" from ebay.. he\'s selling so many remotes for every car..

    remotes

    then we can just buy the key blanks from joe/flipspeed..

    then I\'m guessing joe can cut them for us and possibly install the key onto the remotes we get from ebay..

    Thanks for the answer Flipspeed. When you say \"prepay\" for the remote does it mean you don\'t have it in stock and you have to order it and if so how long will it take to get it? Do I have to leave you one of the keys in order to cut the new one or can you do it \"on the fly\" while I go and grab a coffee or something? And last but not least are you in on Thursday 30th as I might drop by to get them (and pay for all of them)? If I won\'t be able to make it on Thursday I\'ll be there on Saturday guaranteed.

    Prepay meaning I have to order it and if the programming doesn\'t work then you\'re stuck with it. No returns on electrical items.

    I don\'t stock that particular remote. I do have the key blanks in stock.

    The flip key novelty does wear off. When I had one with my VR6 I think others found it \"cooler\" and were more fascinated with it than me

    I liked it for about a month.. then it was meh.

    shhh, u\'r ruining the moment for me.. :p j/k..

    well, the novelty will wear off for everything tho.. cars, homes, ipod, etc.. it\'s just that if u don\'t buy the product that u so want then u\'ll probably always want it.. if the remote from ebay works then the price will be much cheaper and it seems like a small price to pay to make one happy for a while (or for the rest of his/her life)..

    You might be right about the wear off but right now it\'s one of the few things I constantly think about ...

    As I understood from Flipspeed he has to order the remote first so the most you can get today is the blank key. Am I missing something or you were thinking of getting the remote from somewhere else? Anyway if you can get both of them today post the results. I know I\'m interested in this...
