I have a 2006 Mazda3, since last Monday everytime I turn off the car the "door ajar" lights up and beeps (just like when you open the door with the key place in the ignition or when you leave the headlights on) and I can't lock or open the doors with the keyfob. The only way to lock/open the car is with the key itself.

I had the same problem on Tuesday going to work, however when I got home the problem went away; no beeps or noises and I did close the card with the keyfob :). On Wednesday I open the card with the keyfob, no problem, get to work and park the car and the problems comes back again :evil: and so far it hasn't stopped.

I need help, I don't know what it is but would like some guidance before I have to take it to the dealership. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

THANKS!

If the car is still under warranty, I would recommend taking it to the dealer. Did you install anything or make any changes to the car before the problem started happening? Like a new stereo or something?

I would look at the latch area of all your doors and your trunk, and ensure that there's nothing in the way and nothing is loose. Maybe one of them is not making proper contact for some reason?

I'm not sure about the door open light actually lighting up, but there's a TSB for a pin in the ignition sticking which causes it to think there's a key in the ignition. Since the remotes will not work with a key in that means that you can't remotely lock/unlock the car. This will also cause the key in chime to go off, but shouldn't make the door ajar light illuminate.
