I have managed to sort my Keyless ignition issue out at last, and thought I would post it as you wont believe it!

The same as everyone else I had 1 fob worked fine opened the car doors etc and started the car. The other fob stopped working so I changed the battery, fob started working to a point, opened the doors unlocked the boot but wouldn't start the car. What i found was 2 things, 1st is that certain battery types don't work in the fob, I am told Duracell and energizers don't work. 2nd it is possible to put the battery in upside down, the fob works on opening the doors and boot etc but the proximity sensor doesn't. So if you have this issue check the battery is up the correct way. Fortunately for me I took my fob to a local lock specialist and they charged £5 to sort it could have gone to dealer and cost my £95.
Hope that helps someone.

I’m having the same problem 2005 Mazda 6 will start 100 times then I can get in it won’t starry then I can go back half hour later and will go. Then might drive once then won’t start then might have to wait a couple of hours then it will go again. It is so unreliable. It has a new key from a locksmith, has the original key with new battery and a new battery. Immobiliser light continually flashes when I try to start. Has anyone successfully fixedb this problem? Has been to Mazda dealer it started every time they tried even though it had to go a day late because my mechanic who was going to take to Mazda couldn’t get it to go.
