The key switch on these simple machines is nothing more then a Switch that shorts the Engine Coil to ground when you turn the key 'off'.
More than likely these cheesy key switches get gummed up inside and then when you turn the Key 'Off' it does not make the electrical connection to Ground as it should. OR the wire from the coil fell off the keyswitch. Usally only one wire going to swicth as the Key switch body is Ground because it is bolted to the Chassis of the machine.

Will it turn the engine off if you turn the key OFF and then wiggle it in the off position?

I usually get rid of the Key Switch and replace with a toggle switch.

Dose 1998 Mazda Millenia s have fuel shut off switch? and if there is one where it is located?

No, there is no inertia/shut off switch. However, if you have the 2.3 Liter engine, there is an extra relay in the pump circuit. The 2.5 liter model has only the pump fuse and pump relay in the circuit. In both cases, the engine control module turns the pump on and off. The ECM is rarely the cause of a fuel system failure. If there is a problem I can help you with, please explain the symptoms and anything that has been done to the car recently as well as anything you have checked so far.

In the message center box security light has come on

Do you have a second key. If so try using that key to start the vehicle. Dose the light go off.

If it dose switch back to the key that causes the security light to come on. If the light comes on for one key but not the other the chip in that key is failing.

If the security light dose not go out for any key you use, it is the ignition detection unit is failing and need replaced.
