I haven't learned all the information about this alarm unit yet. Here's what I do know:

Symptom Description
Steering column switch LED is fast-blinking Alarm control module (black box) is fried.

Sorry, that's all I know so far. It may still respond to the programming instructions, but afterwards, it may still not work.

Programming Instructions

The alarm is programmed by pressing the yellow button inside the unit, behind the Mazda sticker. You may have to punch a hole, as I did, through the sticker to gain access to the button.

or click here for the alarm code programming instructions in PDF format. You can get the free Adobe Acrobat PDF reader from the Adobe website.

Adjusting Alarm Sensitivity

Using a small screwdriver, turn the dial:

  • clockwise = more sensitive
  • counter clockwise = less sensitive
