Question about 2002 Mazda MPV
Help! My key is stuck in the ignition. It came out once when the car battery died but couldn't get it out since. The mechanic wants 500.00 the repair it. What do I do???? Can a can of wd40 help????????
If you remove the fuse for the flashers, the key will come out. I keep the fuse handy in case I need to use the flashers and I'll just plug it back in!

Pulling out the fuse is a temporary fix only. The problem affects other systems to include the power sliding doors. The problem is a small $15 piece that needs to be replaced, but... no one sells just the part and to get to the part is difficult. To get this fixed can cost anywhere from $300-$500. Biggest problem - its easy to break especially from unscrupulous mechanics; if you get your vehicle back and all your radio stations have been reset - buyer beware!

Taking the fuse out for the hazards does work but just be careful as in my case that fuse runs the turn signals too. I have a Mazda too with the same problem. I just take the fuse out when I get wherever I am going and remove the keys. I then replace the switch so that way I have signals when driving!!!

Have you tried moving the wheel backward and forward while trying to remove it?
you can spray some wd40 in the lock as it may free it up but if you have bent the key in the lock it may not work anyway.
I would get a second quote on fixing it as the guy that quoted you $500 is ripping you off I think.
It is not a real big job to do but if you have never done it before it can be a little daunting.
