try this....
while sitting in the car, open the trunk. Then proceed to get out of the car
and push the lock button. After locking the car (you wont and shouldn't see the light's flash); go to the back of the car, and open the trunk, which has already been popped open. This should set off your alarm.

How did you open the door? If you used the key, then you probably deactivated the alarm. If you reached in through an open window and unlocked or used the inside handle, the alarm should have sounded.

I know that some systems have a delay b4 the alarm actually is armed. I'd try it from the outside w/window down. Arm it, wait a minute, then reach in and open the door from the inside. Alarm should go off.

What model 6 do you have? If you've got a 6i w/o the premium package, I'm not sure that the remote locking actually funactions as an alarm.

I had my dealer demo the standard alarm before I drove off. Here's what we did:
1. Inside the car, roll-down the driver's side window (power-windows should be able to do this even when the car is off)
2. Get out of the car and use the remote to lock the car. Press the lock button again within 5 seconds to hear the confirmation beep.
3. The alarm is now armed. Reach in through the driver's side window and pull the handle to open the door from the inside - the alarm should activate.

To turn off the alarm, either:
1. use the remote to unlock the car, then open the door
or
2. use the key to unlock the car, then open the door

The remote should also have a red (!) panic button. Hit that to make sure your alarm is also working.

Hope this helps.

yeah my alarm I just push 'lock' and the car goes 'beep' ... it's armed and alarm will go off if you open any of the doors

maybe you only have the immobilizer or the alarm isn't installed properly

Now, that's not very service-minded.

You should throw it though your own window, and tell him what happened.

That's helpful. :D

I know my alarm works, just offering suggestions.

Of course, I could always throw a brick at you and see what happens with the car alarm. Let me know if you ever visit the States. :D

I took my car to dealer and they said my car doesn't come with the alarm.
WTF!!! The V6 model is standard equipment......
They tell me to call Mazda USA to find out why, they didn't do anything.

Wow, that's wierd. The alarm is supposed to be on every 6s sold in the USA. You did buy it in the States, right?

The alarm is an addon they offer for $300+

It comes with an anti-theft feature standard.
