Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm moving and I can't find my keys but have
to move my car. A friend took steering
column apart and turned key but alarm went
off and now nothing. Is there a way to
bypass anti theft

No, you will need to find the key or have Mazda or a locksmith make a new one and electronically marry it to the computer. Tearing apart the steering column is a really bad idea.

You can tow it on a flat bed without destroying the column if your in a big hurry. Do you have clean title in your name?

All your friend did was F up the steering column. Now you got TWO things to fix.
