IF IT LOCKS WITH THE FOB IN THE CAR
If your Mazda is locking itself while the FOB is in the car, without it giving you a loud, warning beep, then something in the system is not working correctly. It could be that the key fob has lost its charge, or possibly that the receiver is acting off. But, you should definitely bring it in to get looked at, and carry around a spare key in the meantime.

FIXING POOR KEY FOB RANGE IN A MAZDA
If your key fob isn’t working until you’re right up to the vehicle, then it might have too low of a charge. The first thing to try is a spare electronic key fob, if you have it, otherwise you can also try putting in a new battery. If this doesn’t work, then the transmitter inside the car could have an issue with it.
