By killing the water pump and ignition switch. Basically the person who's trying to still it will see a bit of a shock...It would cost you about 1000.00 to have it repaired at the dealership.

WHAT?...That answer makes no sense...The keylock has a resistor on it, that communicates with the body control module intergrated into the Instrument Cluster(speed-o) through a little wire called a data wire. The steering wheel airbag also uses this same data wire to communicate with the body control module. Anyway, the body control mod. tells the computer that the resistance amount was not verified, which in turn, the computer shuts down the fuel injecton system... All that can be done now is the 10 min. waiting period with the key on, waiting for the theft system light to stop flashing and stay lit solid.....I still can't get over that 1st

How do you deactivate the anti theft system on a 1993 Mazda mx 6?

1) Just start your car with the coded key 2) Pull the battery cable but do not leave it off too long only a few short seconds. (if you leave it off too long the pcm will forget the saved key code then you will need your pcm flashed in order to work with your key again) 3)Bypass the antithief by removing the antitheft wirers. The antitheft system only cuts power to the starter. run your own wiring to the ignition switch to bypass the antitheft.
