1998 Mazda Millenia S Miller Cycle DOHC V6 from North America
By and large, a nice decent sedan
Our power door locks have seemingly "misfired" in a number of ways. Suffice it to say that we don't dare to leave the keys in the car when we simply shut the door, whether the key is in the ignition or just lying on the seat. We don't trust it, because the doors seem to lock on their own.
Now, the power locks have a feature that if we unlock the doors remotely but we do not open a door, the doors will lock themselves again. So I am guessing that that feature gets confused or something, and locks even though we leave the car after removing the keys, opening the door, close the door and not lock it.
I am wondering if I removed the fuse (# 29) in the fuse box inside of the car on the driver's side (labeled 'power door lock' in the user manual), would we be able to simply manually lock the doors? I might be simpler. Please advise.
The style is timeless, more so than most, I think.
The steering radius is surprisingly wide, causing maneuvering problems often.
The Miller engine and transmission is sublime - we have clearly been luckier than many owners.
The Pearl white color is still nice 10 years later. But the front seats are the most uncomfortable for long trips that we have ever had in any car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
