Question about 1993 Mazda 626
Try scraping your new key's edge. Its possible that the steering lock may be slightly worn [to your old keys] and the new key may be sticky in the lock mechanism. Also try squirting a little lubricating greece into the lock mechanism.

SOURCE: ignition and shift lock
by the sifter, (beside your right leg if sitting in the car)
there will be a small plastic cap, about the size of a penny. it will be located around the frount of the shifter.
remove that cap with a small screw drive.
under it is the shift lock over ride.
the small screw driver should alow you to use it like a key and move the shifter into nutral.
if this fails look on the trany for the sift linkage(would be on the back side of a f/w drive car and the driver side if it was R/w drive. disconect the linkage and get a strong vise-grip pliers and shift by hand. keep in mind PRND12..... so go in one direction only, and go back 2 clicks. this will be nutral.

The lock cylinder is shot. Are you sure this car isn't stolen? Better check good,lotta scammers out there. This isn't a regular problem.
