Damn... I was hoping you could get in and then maybe just press the bush button start once or twice and you could drive away as normal..... ::sigh:: thanks for the reply
Just installed my RS last night all working perfectly, thanks to TreyP, the installation went smooth and fast, only took me couple tries to program it. I did get the newer part# C930-V7-620A, nothing new compare to the older part#. Couple things I notice and it could have been better are:
- Press and hold the start button to start the car instead of F + Start to start the car, I think it would work much better to just need to press one button.
- The warm up time cannot be adjust other than 10 and 30 min. From the manual, they like you to conserve fuel and protect the environment and yet does not allow option to warm up the car to a more flexible time.

Wow.. great detail, thanks for taking the time. I want to get one, however my wife is a looooong way from the car at work where she has to park. was hoping to find a smartstart or similar with smartphone activation. Any idea if it has any accessory inputs to be triggered by a 3rd party system ? thanks again
Thanks for you help!
I installed as directed and programming was correct.
However, I get an error on the factory remote starter for "H" - saying the hood is opened, but it's definitely closed.
Anyone have this problem? Is it related to bad wiring on my part? Any suggestion to fix this would be great.
this post, and also cross reference with the factory instructions to be sure you are using the right connection for your fuse panel (Type 'A' or Type 'B')
hm.. I did not perform this step at all since I thought my CX-5 came with an alarm system.
But Nope - I need the hood switch afterall.

Thank you for the extensive "how to." I'll be (hopefully) taking advantage of it this weekend. I ordered the three required parts (rs module, install kit/harness, hood switch) from "mazdagear.com" this morning, and it should show up in 2 days. I've never ordered from them before, but they appear to be legit.
It's a long shot... but if that works, it might be possible to bypass the door open issue.
