It has a Mazda tuned version of the 2.0L Ford duratec engine and an EcuTek control module. The keyless remote has an auxiliary key...

Re: PATS programming on Mazda 6 2006 V6 NA

Under Service Procedures you should see something like this: http://www.kamipiula.net/pictures/screenshots/FORScanWindowsBetaPATS.jpg I see that on my 2011 MX-5, but I have advanced keyless entry and start,...

Have you looked at this thread? How to program PATS using FORScan v2.3.* One of the first things it says is: This article describes PATS programming procedure.

Re: How to program PATS using FORScan v2.3.*

Well, this was disappointing... http://www.kamipiula.net/pictures/screenshots/FORScanWindowsBetaARGHH.jpg :evil: :cry: :? :P No love for AKE it seems. 2011 Mazda MX5/Miata GT with Advanced Keyless Entry and start. The transponder key programming is the same as non-AKE cars, so it's unfortunate I can...

TL;DR: Get the Hikeren ! I have three different cheap ELM327 Bluetooth models that work with FORScan (the 3rd one was a surprise because it's kind of a POS). They were all purchased from Amazon (links below) and prices are current as of the date of this post (price in parenthesis is what they were a...
