Question about 2002 Mazda Protege
Manual locks and windows
Most window handles are help on by a clip in the back. This one is also. I usually take two flat tip screw drivers and pop the clip off by pushing on each end of the clip(both ends are facing the same direction). Handle will pull right off. to re-install simply put the clip back on in the groves and push the handle back onto the shaft.

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.

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...

My son and I both have Proteges, and we had this problem also. There is a nylon gear that the shaft sheers off of, usually in cold weather. We went to the auto wrecker and got relacement actuaors for $10 each and replaced them. The hardest part is learning to take the door panels off. I just did a web search for this and found clear instructions. On my son's car we were only able to get the actuator motor from the opposite side (they are specific to each door) so we carefully took it apart, and changed the gear only, as the gears are identical in all the doors. The housing is what is different for each door.
