Voltage tested and is dropping much slower than normal. I put it on trickle charge as it’s not used much and it charged much faster than normal. Alarm has not sounded all week so looks like my issue is sorted. Will let you know if it goes off again.

Hi Mazda Family! Well it is peaceful to know I am not alone in the world with the same issue like yall!! 😁
I have started to have the same issue since 2 weeks.
1. Car is parked and all of a sudden every 2 3 hours alarms goes of for few secs and then shooosh silence. At times it goes of for couple of times in a hour or at times its just a silent killer. I was reading other forum and few of the guys mentioned that it can also be due to the hot weather in UAE. But m not sure thats the case.
2. Dome lights comes to light while driving and it shows the door open light on dashboard. M not aure what seems to be the issue.
So wanted to get advice would disarming the alarm work for good?

It didn’t with mine (deactivating alarm with the button on the key) but I think yours is a different issue. If you get a door open symbol when all the doors are shut properly you probably have an intermittent fault on a door sensor that triggers it

Hi Anith, I'd agree with Wilson this sounds like a different fault.
But really interesting to hear that similar cars are living in UAE and we're all sharing ideas :)
Which model, engine and year of manufacture are you enjoying?

Well Hi! Didn't expect a swift reply this. But m Damm glad to get a reply. Haha. Its a 2009 model mazda 6 sport. I bought it as pre-owned vehicle. The condition is good. But I knew this car will give me trouble. Still I went ahead and got it. I feel it's worth it. But now I just wanna kill that alarm. I think I can live with sensor issues but the alarm if I don't disable it m sure someone will hit me lmao.
I first thought someone will b messing with my car to set of thr alarm. So one night and parked near m house to test . And to my surprise it rang the whole night randomly. I could hear it in my dreams.
So once again I wanna ask you will disarming the antitheft alarm would it help

Hi Anith, my car is a Sport 2.2d 180 for the English market. It didn't excite me as a new company car order 10 years ago but impressed me enough to buy it from the leasing company at 4 years old. We'll never part with it for the moment, excellent car, no faults except the recent alarm thing which this forum is covering off. Just changed, tyres, brake parts and basic servicing. Great cars. I'm looking further into the alarm matter at the weekend, weather permitting, but Wilson is probably a step ahead of me with our problem probably centered around the Bluetooth, bearing in mind your issue may be slightly different. Together we'll solve it :)

Did you get any further with a solution. Our Mazda 6 TS 2009 has started doing the random alarm thing too. I am just about to disconnect the horn fuse

Hey mazda lovers! I have a good news. I saw some videos on YouTube and some of guys had the same issue. And to my luck I checked under my hood in the electric box underneath the pins I saw same kind of greese or black lubricant. I told my mechanic to clean it and he went ahead also cleaned thr pins beneath thr steering wheel too. Now its been 48 hrs and no alarm and even my overhead light does not light radomly. Hopefully this lasts long.. : )

Cheers 🍻

Hi guys, good to hear ideas floating around still. I'm going to follow Wilson's example and look into the Bluetooth unit behind the glove box next but we lost a weekend rebuilding the rear brakes. Done by a 'reputable' independent garage not too long ago but practically seized solid with various issues. At least with home maintenance we know it's done right...

Hi fellow random alarm sufferers,
I‘ve been having the same issue, but came across a simple suggestion of how to fix on another post (but now can’t find it to add the link here :().
Basically they explained the issue being due to some corrosion in the door lock sensors, which was causing the alarm to trigger (and also for the central dome light/dash door warning to come on randomly). The solution suggested was as follows:
1) Spray WD40 into the internal door/boot catch mechanism using the straw it comes with. Give them a really good blast. The deeper in the better.
2) Open and close the door 10-20 times to work the WD40 into the mechanism.
3) Repeat on all doors and boot locks.
I did this a week ago and am pleased to say that I’ve had no random alarms triggered since.
This may not work for everyone, but as a low cost fix it’s certainly worth giving a go first up, as you could really save yourself some cash if it works.
I hope this helps some of you out.

Hi Wilson101
Yes i have had the "open door light" come on my 2009 Mazda6 2.2 T.D. (U.K. Version ) which points to wind pressure or similar setting off the alarm sensor on either of ......4 doors/ boot/Hood -(Bonnet ).
I have disconnected the speaker which is located behind the lining of the boot on the drivers side (RHD UK Version ) (Mazda manual shows it on LHS for LHD )
It has stopped the noise, but lights still flash, which i can live with .
There is NO lithium battery in this horn set-up as my car has been like this for months now. while i have been trying to work out the problem. (i had a lithium one in a Vauxhall once which did all this but once removed it squawked for 4 days in a bucket of water lol)
Personally i think that MY problem is with Radio Waves given off by the sun at Sundown, or even our Local telephone mast/ local wifi/or bluetooth ? ....who really knows... as yesterday the lights flashed with a gust of Wind DOH !

Hi guys, my news (having spent a few weekends distracted by replacing the brakes on the 6 and another car) is that the interior light together with the door open light on the instrument panel were flashing like a disco when I went out in the dark last night. I'd discounted the door sensors given there was no previous evidence but I think they're now the front runner in my search for the problem. I haven't worked out how the sensors are set up on the 5 doors yet but surely they're going to be a simple clean, refurbish, replace fix and I've a feeling it's the driver door as it responded to being opened and closed during the journey :)

My connector also looked the same as Rustynuts, also cleaned it and it also worked for 3 days. I will keep following for a solution. My 2007 Mazda 6 GT does not have bluetooth & I see nothing behind the glove box! Help anyone? Can I just pull the alarm fuse without any side affects? Oh also when I cleaned the connection and put everything back together when I set the alarm the horn would beep as normal but my lights no longer flash????? Anyone??
