Ignition Switch Failure May Cause Key Reminder to Chime Continuously on Mazda Mazda3

Internal failure of the ignition switch may create a condition where the key reminder continues to chime even though the key is removed. In addition, the doors cannot be locked with the keyless entry system. Replacing the ignition switch with an updated switch is the typical repair.

key reminder will not cut off with the key remove?
The key reminder chimes even when key is not in ignition. I have to manually lock and unlock door with key.

This problem happened to me, but the solution was quite simple. There was something wrong with the fuses. Fuses are only like $5 each.
