    Default Radio Staying on and doors not locking.

    Was just wondering if anyone could give me some info about my car. I have a 2007 face lift 1.8 sri which i have only had two months. Last weekend my car started playing up and the doors arent opening or locking with the fob you have to use the key in the drivers door jump inside and open the rest from the inside. Also the when i turn the ignition off the radio stays on and when i open the door it starts too beep as if i have left the lights on or something on. Then on tuesday it took me 4 attempts to start my car as if the battery was flat and then every morning since it has started first time but does sound as if its struggling any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    The radio stays on until you pull the key out the ignition fella. And the beeping when you open the door is to let you know the key is still in the ignition.

    Sounds like the battery in the fob is goosed, and the battery under the bonnet is knackered too to me.

    This can happen when the ignition lock switch jams. Bacuse it is stuck/faulty it thinks you have the key in the ignition all the time. This is why you get the bongs when you open the door and also why the fob will not lock /unlock. Could also explain why it would not start if the ignition switch is not making proper contact. The radio of course will not go off until it thinks you have removed the key.

    I think you can replace the ignition switch separately from the lock mechanism as that is all you need.
