Question about 2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring
Lost Ignition key--how do I get it out of park so I can load car??
Best option: Dealer or Locksmith should be able to make you another key, be about $250+ though (chip key), "valet" key will work, but can't start car. But, you could also locate transfer bar from ignition to shifter lock, should be on steering column. Other option, punch ignition out, extreme, but "loading" car to junk? Any Tow truck it does not matter if in park or not, they'll just hook it up and drag it to load.

Possibly crawl under car and dissconnect the shifter and manually move the selector on the trans out of Park Position. Normally the locking feature is in the steering column.. which you can also take apart to release this feature.

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!

When you experience this problem, check to see if your brake lights are coming on. It could be as simple as a brake light switch malfunction. If the brake lights are functioning as the problem is occurring then you could for example have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid.

2001 MAzda MPV- Key was stuck in ignition. Would not turn all the way back to remove. I pulled the fuse for the Hazards and WHOLA!! Key turned back and could be removed.! Just to test the problem I put the key back in , started up , pulled up and back a few feet, turned the steering wheel and parked. Key was stuck again. I pulled the fuse and again ... WHOLA! key was released. Now what I need to do is fix the problem or I have to pull a fuse every time I stop the car - ANY ADVICE??
