The tumblers have wore down and won't let the key turn. At this point you need to have the tumbler set replaced.

Where is the steering wheel lock located?


If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

I have had problems lately with my 2010 Mazda. The key will not turn the ignition, even if the steering wheel is locked.


Do you have another key to try and if so is the problem still there? If it is, the ignition cylinder is worn and will have to be replaced. It will be cheaper to have this cylinder replaced while the key is still able to turn. When the key is unable to turn, the labor cost goes up as well as more parts may be needed as the cylinder needs to turn in order for it to be disassembled and re[placed

Sounds like the steering wheel lock mechanism. Try jiggling the steering wheel side to side then try to get the key out.

Ignition lock is stuck (locked) on 92 mazda protege


Please dont think Im talking down to you when I ask this, but did you try turning the steering wheel? If the steering wheel is got tension on it ie against a curb, etc then the key wont turn in the cylinder. If that isnt the case then if you have the inclination you can try taking the steering column apart and replacing the ignition switch, or get it towed to your mechanic...

Mazda millenia problems


here are a few problems to look out for:

Check-engine light: Check engine light comes on due to carbon buildup on the exhaust valves of 2.5L engine. (1995-02)

Engine noise: Some engines make a metallic tapping noise requiring a new friction-gear spring on the camshaft. (1995)

Headlights: The headlight drain hoses can get kinked by the aiming screws causing fogging. (1995-96)

Keys: It may be hard to turn the ignition key because the steering shaft is not positioned correctly. (1995)

Steering problems: The steering wheel may be off center requiring adjustment of the tie rods. (1995). You can also have a look at the following website where some owner have given their opinions on owning one. http://www.carsurvey.org/reviews/mazda/millenia/r68654/comments/

When key goes in ignition. steering wheel wont adjust up or down


its the tilt thing, you have to have it replaced for $200, or go to a mechanic and have him adjust it the level you want and let him deactivate the tilt from electricity. Best thing I ended up with my millenia :)
