Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

This is a known typical issue with the bonnet switch not closing fully ,what happens is the switch on the bonnet is open so the car thinks the system is being broken into .

Have the switch checked if this is okay then check one of the cars doors .

If you have access to a good scan tool you can go into live data and check which door bonnet or boot switch is not closing correctly .

When all doors , bonnet ,or boot is closed and the data shows the bonnet is open then this switch will have to be checked . on most Mazda 3 the bonnet switch rubber is warn thin and needs replacing .

Please get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad service rating , so i can get back to you with further assistance with this issue or offer assistance with another expert .
