    Ignition not turning off fully!

    Please help... I have an Astra 1.6 sxi 06plate When I turn off my ignition the radio stays on and when I open the door the door open light bleeps and I cannot lock the car!!! It is driving me mad. I have tried putting the key in the ignition for one click and pressing lock/unlock but it doesnt seem to work.

    Thanks in Advance

    Ignition

    Please help. When I turn off my ignition the radio is staying on and when I open the door the door open light is on and is bleeping. This is preventing me from locking the car. I have tried the key in ignition for one click and pressing lock/unlock and pressing the barrell in and out.

    Thanks in Advance

    As stu said give the ignition a wee spray of wd40 and work the key in and out, should solve your wee problem

    yeap..

    its cool.. a mod will close the other thread soon



    they stick sometimes... mine doing it actually.. the surround on the barrel itself pups out a bit when key out... but urs is stuck in so keeping the contact at the back.. hence the buzz and power to radio
