I have the same problem with my 2013 Mazda CX-5. If I disconnect the battery, the electronics will shut off, but if I try to restart the car, none of the electronics will turn off. I replaced the batteries in both the key fob's twice now, and I still get the same results, I also replaced the car battery before all of this thinking that was the problem.

The problem is with the gear shifter . There must be a sensor that tells it when its in park. If you move the shifter from left to right real fast a couple of times, it will shut off when you push the button.


My 2014 CX-5 is doing the same thing. First it was once in a while now it's constantly. I've had my battery run down so many times I bought a Mighty Max jumper for fear of being stranded. I live 50 miles from the nearest town. I have tried moving the shifter like Antonio mentioned above but sometimes nothing works. I just have to hope it will start next time I get in.
