0 votes
I'm installing on my wife's 2014 mazda 3 push button start manual. i have followed directions and programmed module how ever nothing happens when i try to remote start it. car starts and drives. I have noticed ignitoin switch doesn't light up any more when vehilce is running. lights green with clutch pressed. The only wires i needed to hook up per directions was the clutch wire and hood switch... do i need to hook up any other wires not mentioned? Its not in valet mode. i noticed parking lights don't flash when enabling disabling valet mode does that mean theres an issue with the module or wiring in t-harness?

Parking light don't flash because you did not connect the parking light.

For a manual transmission vehicle you must follow the Ready Mode procedure. Refer to the owner manual.

Professional installation is HIGHLY recommended for manual transmission vehicle.

I am having the same issue with a 2014 Mazda CX-5 (which I believe is very similar programming to 2014 Mazda3).  I referred to the user manual, but the instructions for Ready Mode are not written for cars with push-to-start.  They are for cars with a traditional key.  All other programming steps appear to have been successful.  I have the necessary hardware and firmware revisions.  Option 38.2 is enabled (3x lock on OEM remote).  Any help would be appreciated!
I was able to solve this problem with help from technical support.  Following the Ready Mode procedure only works if Ready Mode is enabled (option 33.2).  This is the step I was missing.  So 33.2 and 38.2 both need to be enabled in order to remote start the manual equipped vehicle with the OEM remote.
