    I have the same problem. it must be something electronic because when the battery is disconnected it comes right out..

  • donvandekrol May 25, 2009

    The key will not turn in the lock to the position where it can be removed unless the battery is dead or disconnected.

    ok can sctagtman please say what this $15 piece is to fix the key problem?

  • Dan C May 11, 2010

    WD40 might help. Make sure that the shifter is all the way up in park and then wiggle the lock cylinder back and forth as you wiggle the key out. Do you generally leave the key in anyway? (trying to understand why it would stick in there. Give the WD40 some time to soak in, also.

    I don't really understand the reference to the dead battery. If there is some magical solenoid to hold the key in that I don't know of, perhaps you should disconnect the battery...? Or was it just some long time ago when the key was last pulled out?

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.

Inside chime stays on a has killed my battery. I will only stop when I disconnect the battery terminal, but once I put the key in the ignition it stays on after I remove the key.


2 things to check, first ,, check the door switches, if one is shorted or stuck,, that chime will never ******* and will drive you insane !! if they all check out ok,, your going to have to get the ignition checked, its not fully shutting off ,, removing the chime won't correct this problem, and I imagine that unhooking the battery is quite a pain to do each time, I wish you good Luck with this problem,, let me know what you find works

Mazda MPV have problems with failing gear shift change assembly ( includes park sensor micro switch)

Pull the fuse for the hazard lights ( 10amp) - if the key comes out, then the switch is defective.

Fix the problem by installing a new change lever assembly - part number for 2000 and 2001 MPV's is LC62-46-10XE with MSRP of $246.90. 2002-2004 would be a LD47-46-10XB with MSRP of $250.40.

I was browsing unsolved problems. If you still have the problem, I'll try to help you. But it's going to be awhile trying to communicate back and forth. First...Check the engine for spark. Take off a plug wire and stick a screw driver in the wire end and place the metal part of the screw driver next to something on the van that's metal. Have someone crank it over for just a second or two and see if a small spark jumps from the screw driver to the metal part. I'll check back for your answer.

Program remote control for mazda mpv 2002


Courtesy of: forums.mazdaworld.org

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done
