This is for those who are looking for procedure to program smart keys to Mazda-cx5 2016.


  1. No luck with MVP!


  1. Send data log if failure with Otosys IM600!


Just select the Smart Key menu, and follow prompts on the screen. Engineers say for this car, it’s bypass PIN, no need for any 4 digit or 6 digit code. If still any problem, pls send us the new complete datalog for check.

If you fail to do that, pls. send through the data log to Auro to assess what occurred and also fix the issue. Contact and also ask if there is another option for programming or if there has been a recent update. If all datalogs are sent through the professionals will address the issues, if you don’t send them through the issues are unknown. It helps you all to send through any issues and data log them.



  1. Can be done with Obdstar tools!


Option 1: No issues with OBDSTAR X300 DP!

You can use the little obdstar green box..

Note that don’t use the factory vcm2; it is useless without the incode.. it will not calculate the incode/outcodes 2013+++ smart keys


If you have all lost keys.. you have to use the tool to force the ignition on. Then just add a key like you would like any other Mazda. The only difference in the obdstar/xtool is that it skips the outcome in code calculation


Use key master/x300 pro by obdstar it does it without asking for in code and outcode



Option 2: Work perfect with Obdstar F100/H100

This key tool and solution are born for Ford/Mazda owners 🙂
