How i chango my inition switch if i loose my keys on a mazda b 2300 1997

Hi Luis:
Before I started the grief and cost of changing the switch, I would take the VIN number to the nearest mazda dealer and bring my proof of ownership.
They should be able to bring up the key code for you and then you can get new keys cut. at a lock & key shop.

Key got stuck in the inition on on position car will not stop

The ignition lock cylinders tend to break off on those vehicles (Caravan / Voyager / Town and Country) and cause the symptoms you are describing. You will most likely not have to replace the entire ignition switch assembly (although sometimes this is the case). The lock cylinder is available as a separate part and can be replaced individually.

When you changed the cylinder, you also changed the key, in the key is a chip the allows the antitheft to turn off and you need to reset the antitheft to the new key. A dealer job unfortunatly.

The key is stuck in the ignition and won't come out. This is the second time this has happened. We replaced the ignition lock cylinder about six months ago to fix it the first time. That time the ignition...

try turning the steering wheel side to side while pulling on the key, the steering wheel will be locked, but just keep trying, it will eventually come out.
