    mfd staying on

    my key came apart the other day found the chip replaced it but since then the mfd stays on constantly and so do the lights behind the radio the only way they would go off was to remove the front panel off the radio.the radio doesnt work either , even though ive put the code in this has flattened my battery. had not used car over wk end found battery was totally flat charged it all day still nothing jump started ok though. ive got a new battery today car starts ok but mdf back on all time even with radio panel removed. someone said could be something to do with the car having had a phone fitted before i had it?? help please??
    ive got an astra coupe 2.2, 03 plate

    I've heard of the factory radio going faulty in this way, try taking it out and seeing what happens then

    You mentioned about a phone kit too? Is it totally removed?
