Dear 2010 CX9 owners,
A guy posted a procedure to program automatic door lock yourself (gear-activated or speed-activated) for 2010 CX9.
I tried it on my 2008. It doesn't work. My BCM model is TD 12 67 560D.
(I was not surprised since my 2008 WorkShop manual does not mention this at all).

See the details by following the link...

I have a 2010 Touring and it worked for me. I set mine to function 3.

Great information!

That is a great news for 2010 owners.
Can 2009 owners try this and confirm it either way?

I have a 2010 GT and I just set it to function 5 and it worked great! I was wondering about this. My 2004 Sienna had it set up that way and my 2009 TL has it also. Thanks for the info.

Status report:
Doesn't Work on: 2008, 2009
Work on: 2010
2007? Most likely a big NO ...

Congrats to 2010 owners!

It works. I set mine to Function 3. This is what I extremely expected.
Thank you for the great information.

Hmm. I'm going to try this on my 2006 Mazda 3 hatchback and my mom's 2009 Mazda 6. I've asked about this for both vehicles at the dealership and they said there was no way they could program it.

I know it says for 2010 vehicles, but it's worth a try.

Doesn't work on my 2008 either.

I know some people couldn't care less about autolocking doors, but it's a bit ridiculous that my last car, a 2001 model, could be programmed in a similar manner to autolock, yet a 2008 flagship Mazda can't do it. And I won't get started about a mpg computer...

Aaaaah well...congrats to the 2010 owners. I am jealous.

If this thing does not work for '08 and '09, what is the chance that it works for '07?
One can hope can don't hold your breath for it.....

It does not work for the '07. I tried it and could not start my car after. Got the click click sound. Never had that before. Lights were off, stereo off, nothing plugged in to the 12v outlets. I looked at the battery and one of the cell plugs with the round screw tops had some boil over. Not sure this all coincides, but damn. I held the door lock switch for 15 seconds w/o a beep. (detect)

I tried setting this up on my 2010 CX-9 the other night and couldn't seem to get it done. I did the first half, but once it came to choosing the options (1-5) I couldn't figure that part out. I don't know how to set that part up. Is there a drop down menu on the screen or something? Please help...

Thanks!

Press the unlock side of the door-lock switch in the amount of the selected function number. For example: If you want function 3, press the unlock button on the door 3 times.

I have also tried to program the locks on my 2010GT without success. I get the beep, but after pressing the unlock button for whichever function, nothing changes. It's not that big of a deal for me although I would like to have the auto lock function available if needed. I've tried it fast, slow, turned the key off after the presses, started the car after the presses, and everything in between. What am I doing wrong?

Just remember to wait for the conformation chimes after you are done hitting the unlock button to the desired function code before you start the car.

Thanks!!! I was in too much of a hurry. Took my time. Got the chimes in return. Works!!!

The wife always did say I had no patience.

G'day,

When you guys say that it works for 2010, but not 2009, do you mean that if you have a 'facelift' 2009 build it won't work but if you have a 'facelift' 2010 it will ?

Or when referring to 2009 not working do you mean the 'pre-facelift' models ?

Mine is a DECEMBER 2009 build and I can't get it to work - but not sure if that is because it is disabled in Australia.

Cheers

After pressing the unlock button the desired number of times how long does it take to get a confirmation chime? I have a 2010GT and can't get this to work.

Check the BCM model number.
It is more precise.

Yeah works great. Just gotta make sure you wait for the confirmation beep. I chose option 5. Hmm wonder if it would work on my 2010 Mazda 6 sGT?

Check the BCM # as explained in the original posting.
If the BCM is the same as the 2010 CX9's, it probably should work. If not, don't bother to try.
BCM can be found inside the kick panel to the left of your left ankle (for left-hand drive).

Works on my '11 CX-9 GT and in fact this procedure is described in my owner's manual. I switched to function 5 which is far more convenient that the default setting.

Does this works on CX9 with Smartkey? I cant even tell what "ON" position is :(

Someone please post a youtube video!

I thought about doing the mod on my 2008 where the doors autolock when you release the e-brake, and unlock when you engage the e-brake, but 1) I don't want to wear out the ebrake cable and never use the e-brake unless I park on a hill somewhere (hardly ever). The only other options I can think of as a "trigger" are 1) the 12v outlet in the dash (not the one in the console that is always powered) and this would require some sort of transformer and/or relay, or 2) tap into a relay in the engine compartment that is only powered when the engine is running (ignition engaged). Ultimately, I don't think that much work is worth it.

It all depends on what year vehicle you have. It only works on 2010+. The "ON" position is where the ignition switch is when the car is running. But in the procedure, don't start the vehicle. Just turn the ignition all the way forward without starting it.

Glad that has been cleared up. (drinks)

With credit to the original poster at Edmunds (http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/WebX?14@@.f216794/0), Here are the instructions.....

No problem---This applies to 2010 Mazda3 Mazda6 CX-7 CX-9. 2010 Mazda6 vehicles with BCM GS3L-67-560 and BCM GS3M-67-560 are not equipped with this feature.

Below are the main instructions:

1: Stop the vehicle and close all the doors
2: Switch the ignition to ON
3: Press and hold the lock side of the driver's side door-lock switch within 10 seconds of switching the ignition ON, a "beep" will be heard about 8 seconds afterwards.
4: Referring to the table, determine the function number for the desired setting and press the unlock side of the door-lock switch in the amount of the selected function number.

Function 1: The auto door-lock is disabled
Function 2: All doors and the liftgate lock automatically when the vehicle speed reaches about 12mph or more
Function 3: All doors and liftgate lock automatically when the vehicle speed reaches about 12mph or more. All the doors and the liftgate will unlock when the ignition is switched from ON to ACC or OFF
Function4: (A/T) only: When the ignition is switched ON and the shift lever is shifted from PARK to any other gear position, all doors and the liftgate lock automatically
Function 5: (A/T) only: When the ignition is switched ON and the shift lever is shifted from PARK to any other gear position, all doors and the liftgate lock automatically. When the shift lever is shifted to PARK while the ignition is ON all doors and the liftgate unlock automatically.

**I think A/T means automatic transmission, but I am not sure. Good luck, I hope this works for you.

Take the kick panel off (near your left foot when you sit in driver's seat).
You can see the BCM box. There is a model # on it.

Both my 1990 VW Jetta Gli and my 1997 VW Passat GLX had complete MFA display: avg mph, avg mpg, trip a, trip b, odometer, trip timer (you could reset the avg mpg to get instant mpg say if you were driving down a flat road) and my 08 CX-9 has no mfa readout...just dumb.

Just for clarity, per the above threads, you once you have selected the Function 1-5, wait for another beep.
