door locks unlocked when ignition turned on, open door light on concurrently


Asked by Dec 07, 2015 at 04:43 PM about the 2012 Mazda MAZDA5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Open door light remains on even tho' all doors are solidly shut, including the rear hatch. Doors lock normally, but when ignition turned on all doors unlock.

1 Answer


Took it to a mechanic, he squirted lube into the door latch mechanisms, Voila! Problem solved. Apparently, one or more doors weren't latching properly - resulting in the locks acting up.
