    ignition not turning off!

    im sure the ignition or whatever is not turning off when i switch off the car.

    problem is that when i switch it off the (aftermarket) stereo stays on where as before it used to turn off when i turned off the car and also when i open the door that audible ringing starts as if i've left the keys in the ignition barrel even when they're not!

    has anyone got any idea what the actual problem here is, and if there's a solution to it?

    cheers, oli

    pull the key out the ignition barrel, then with ur finger, the barrel will push in slightly, if you hold it in the door buzzer should stop, release it and the stereo and buzzer should go off. its hard to explain but when u pull the key out the barrel is meant to come out a little, mines sticks like this a little, its something im aware of and just watch out for it! possible cures - maybe buy a new barrel, think my car has had this at one point as there is a receipt for one in the history.

    Barrel could be sticking. I'd start by spraying some WD40 into it and work it back and forwards to see if it free's up

    You'll probably find your steering lock isn't working either
