My 2002 does the same thing. Intermitantly a bell chimes for about a min or two, then goes off for a half hour and comes back on, etc... My mechaninc said it is a faulty "put on your seat belt" warning bell. I was just going to have it disconnected but he said to do that you have to get into the dashboard, which is expensive, so I just turn up the radio until it goes off!
I have the same problem. It is a beep that beeps for 5 time for 5 cycles and left unattended will get more frequent and do it every 35 miles. Eventually it will stop and then start up in a month or two (voice of exerience here!) Anyway, it is an alarm that has to do with the airbags. Mazda needs to put it on a diagnostic tester to find out which one needs work.
