How do I disable the keyless entry on a 2003 Mazda Protege5 by myself (without taking it to the dealer)? One set of keys was stolen and I don't want the thieves to be able to unlock my car using the remote.

Hello tjmack, I take great delight in defeating high tech stuff that automotive geniuses put on automobiles. I believe that we will be able to find a way to disable your remote door lock sysyem that will be just fine. First you need to download this .pdf file (let me know if you have a problem): http://www.autoshop101.com/forms/maz-ewd.pdf Go to page 58 and you will see what I hope is a typical Mazda wiring diagram for the door lock system. The best solution to your problem might be if you can locate the red wire that comes out of the "door lock relay" module. If you can locate and disconnect that wire, you should still be able to lock your doors electrically. Where the "door lock relay" module is located might be a problem. Another way that would absolutely work is to remove the 30 amp fuse that powers the whole door lock system. You should be able to rig a switch so that you could turn the system off/on without having to remove a fuse every time. The wire that comes out of the fuse block shows to be white/green striped. You could also cut this wire and achieve the same thing. Let me know if you have any problems with any of this and I will try and help. I am proud of you for trying to do this yourself and not going to the dealer. Good luck, Redhoss

Pulling out the fuse was the easiest and most effective method. Thanks for the advice!
