Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Starting the Engine

WARNING

Radio waves from the key may affect medical devices such as pacemakers: Before using the key near people who use medical devices, ask the medical device manufacturer or your physician if radio waves from the key will affect the device.

NOTE

The key must be carried because the key carries an immobilizer chip that must communicate with the engine controls at short range.

The engine can be started when the push button start is pressed from off, ACC, or ON.

The advanced keyless entry system functions can be deactivated to prevent any possible adverse effect on a user wearing a pacemaker or other medical device. If the system is deactivated, you will be unable to start the engine by carrying the key.

Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer for details. If the advanced keyless entry system has been deactivated, you can start the engine by following the procedure indicated when the key battery goes dead.

Refer to Engine Start Function When Key Battery is Dead .

After starting a cold engine, the engine speed increases and a whining sound from the engine compartment can be heard.

This is for improved exhaust gas purification and does not indicate defect of the parts.

Engine-starting is controlled by the spark ignition system.

This system meets all Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment Standard requirements regulating the impulse electrical field strength of radio noise.

The key battery is dead.

The key is out of operational range.

The key is placed in areas where it is difficult for the system to detect the signal .

A key from another manufacturer similar to the key is in the operational range.

(Forced engine starting method)

If the KEY warning light (red) illuminates, or the push button start indicator light (amber) flashes, this could indicate that the engine may not start using the usual starting method. Have your vehicle inspected at an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible. If this occurs, the engine can be force-started. Press and hold the push button start until the engine starts.

Other procedures necessary for starting the engine such as having the key in the cabin, and depressing the clutch pedal (manual transaxle) or the brake pedal (automatic transaxle) are required.

When the engine is force-started, the KEY warning light (red) remains illuminated and the push button start indicator light (amber) remains flashing.

NOTE

After starting the engine, the push button start indicator light (amber) turn off and the ignition is in the ON position.

After pressing the push button start and before the engine starts, the operation sound of the fuel pump motor from near the fuel tank can be heard, however, this does not indicate a malfunction.

8. After starting the engine, let it idle for about ten seconds.

NOTE

Whether the engine is cold or warm, it should be started without the use of the accelerator.

If the engine does not start the first time, refer to Starting a Flooded Engine under Emergency Starting. If the engine still does not start, have your vehicle inspected by an Authorized Mazda Dealer .

CAUTION

When starting the engine by holding the transmitter over the push button start due to a dead key battery or a malfunctioning key, be careful not to allow the following.

Otherwise the signal from the key will not be received correctly and the engine may not start.

Metal parts of other keys or metal objects touch the key.


Spare keys or keys for other vehicles equipped with an immobilizer system touch or come near the key.

If the engine cannot be started due to a dead key battery, the engine can be started using the following procedure:

1. Depress the brake pedal (automatic transaxle) or fully depress the clutch pedal (manual transaxle).

2. Verify that the push button start indicator light (green) flashes.

NOTE

The push button start indicator light (green) will flash even if the push button start is pressed before depressing the brake pedal (automatic transaxle) or the clutch pedal (manual transaxle). If the clutch pedal is depressed (manual transaxle) or the brake pedal is depressed (automatic transaxle) under this condition, the engine can be started by resuming the procedure following this.

3. Touch the push button start using the backside of the key (as shown) while the push button start indicator light (green) flashes.


4. After the push button start indicator light (green) changes to full illumination, press the push button start with your finger.

The engine cannot be started unless the clutch pedal is fully depressed (manual transaxle) or the brake pedal is fully depressed (automatic transaxle).

If there is a malfunction with the push button start function, the push button start indicator light (amber) flashes. In this case, the engine may start, however, have the vehicle checked at an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible.

If the push button start indicator light (green) does not illuminate, perform the operation from the beginning again. If it does not illuminate, have the vehicle checked at an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

If you just want to change the ignition position (with a dead key battery), after the push button start indicator light (green) changes to illumination, release the brake pedal (automatic transaxle) or the clutch pedal (manual transaxle), and press the push button start. The ignition switches in the order of ACC, ON, and OFF each time it is pressed. Once the ignition switches off, the ignition position can no longer be switched. Therefore, if the engine starts, perform the operation from the beginning again.
