Need urgent help! 2015 6 GT immobilized
Hi there, 1st post and not happy that it's about a dire topic. So my wife has a 2015 GT full equipped and she went over a big pothole on the parkway and the engine shut off. She first thought it was a flat tire but the engine shut off and she was lucky enough to veer off from the middle lane and on to the right lane (no shoulder on the parkway!) with blinkers on. This was at around 9 pm and it was raining so this was extremely harrowing for her to sit on the right lane with the blinkers on with cars coming at her fast. Long story short, the car wouldn't start but no damage to the body or tires and I had road side assistance tow the car to our house. Before it was towed, a cop pulled in and she lowered passenger window to talk to him and 10 min later, the window wouldn't go up either. It's sitting on the driveway and these are the things I have done so far:
1) Removed the negative terminal of the battery, pumped the brakes for about 8-9 secs to let the battery drain hoping to reset the ECS but no luck. The car click but will not turn over. There is power but the windows wouldn't go up or down.
2) Removed both negative and positive terminals of the battery and re-connected after about 20 mins. Same result as above.
3) Looked for an inertia switch even though there is no mention of it anywhere in the manual. I looked in the passenger kick wall area, right panel between passenger door and foot rest, behind the glove compartment, there is no switch.
4) Looked for a fuel line cutoff switch but couldn't find any wherever I looked.
When I press the start button, there is a lock sign right next to the car symbol in the speedometer so I am pretty sure the car is immobilized. I searched all over the internet to see how to get it out immobilization mode but nothing written for the 3rd gen Mazda 6. Does anyone know of a sequence to get the car out of the immobilization mode? Willing to try anything at this point before having to tow it to the stealership!! Thanks in advance for any help.
