If you don't mind being the guinea pig by all means go to your dealer and ask them to program the 05 key for your 04 and see what happens or you could do a search and see what two dealers have already concluded let us know what your dealer says

Don't worry about your sentences (or actually one sentence ). I have **** from the ozzie all the time. They cannot understand a slightly "mistuned" sentence... no flexibity in the mind of speak of. Just let it go... you have yin and yang. Relax ~~~

I am speaking **** ain't I?

You should be able to order the 05 key from your dealer. Seriously, read the retractable key threads below. Don't come crying about spending $80 on an 05 key that doesn't work with your 04.

The us dealers tried to code a retractable key in the 04 car and they don't work. I posted this yesturday at the Trussville vendors page.

"My understanding of the way the system works is that the "coil" reads the key ID number and sends that data to the "keyless Control Module" which then sends a signal to the ECU allowing the car to start. One of the trouble codes is "13" meaning the key ID cannot be read or there was a key ID registration error. The trouble shooting for that DTC states that:

"Any of the following items are touching or near the key head"
--Spare keys
--Keys for other vehicles equipped with an immobilizer system
--Any metallic object
--Any electronic device, or any credit or other cards with magnietic strips"

These items will interfere with the coil reading the ID # from the key. With the new 05 keys they have the remote keyless entry circuitry as part of the key, and this could be what is interfering with the 04 coil from reading the 05 key. That means that Mazda would have to have a new coil around the ignition to read the 05 key. So long as there are no changes in the keyless control module, we should be able to swap out the 04 coil with the 05 coil and then get a new set of 05 keys and have them coded."


I'm still waiting for an answer.

It's called the 05 key because it's the key to the 05 model year RX-8 you know what I mean
