yes it is only working on the key to lock and that only to lock and unlock the other doors remain locked and therefore I have in effect a single seat car. the electronic locking is not working. I have tried putting a new battery in the fob.


The local Mazda garage are not sure what the problem is and they would start repair by process of elimination, I have experienced that kind of repairs before with another car I owned Renault) and well remember where that led Megabucks!


Await your reply not too long please Fred

Hello again - Thank you for your reply and further info.

Fred - I know what you mean yes - a process of elimination can get very expensive - but before we progress here - can I ask what your abilities are re car repairs - ie, can you work on the car and do you have any test equipment at all?
