Question about 2001 Mazda 626
Car wouldn't start yesterday, starter didn't even click. All electronics worked & all warning lights came on, including check engine light. Noticed the steering wheel didn't lock. This AM it started fine- twice, but steering wheel still doesn't lock when key is removed.

When ever a batter this new goes bad, it is either because it is not being charged, because there is something wrong with the charging system, or there is a constant drain even when the key is off.
To check the latter, with everything off, you remove a battery cable and see if the is any glow from a test light between the post and the cable. If there is, then you have something on that should not be, all the time. Then you pull fuses and disconnect things until it goes off.
To check if the charging system is not working, the easiest way it is to borrow a battery to get it started, (don't jump start a car if you can avoid it, because you can ruin an alternator when it starts, because it will kill itself trying to charge up that bad battery.) With the lights on, rev up the engine. They should get slightly brighter. Of with a volt meter, see it go from 12.5 to 13.5 volts, or so. If it does not go up, then your battery is all that was powering the car, and it won't last long like that.

It sounds like you may have a bad starter or maybe even a bad ignition switch. Then again there is always the possibility that you may just have a bad connection some where. I hope this helps you out.
