Have you tried getting blanks from Mazda?
Does the blank the Mr Minute used match? Did his cutting match well?
Could be the locks are worn also.

Key blanks are definitely available new, as are brand new aftermarket matching ignition barrel and key lock sets - they are made by Nice Products, which are sold through various Australian retailers.

The catalogue is here: https://niceproducts.com.au/wp-content/ ... elocks.pdf - series 2 ignition barrel and complete lock set is NIK204C - rrp $145.

My bet it that the lock itself is stuffed - this is common. The door locks are the same as what was on Ford Laser / Mazda 323s. They are a cheap design that commonly breaks.

If you buy a new set of locks, a good locksmith can adjust the locks so they match your existing key (so they match the ignition lock etc).

If you are in Sydney, Thunderbolt Locksmiths in Fairfield are good at this. The locksmith there told me he remembers doing heaps of them in the 80s on Ford Lasers / Mazda 323s.
