    Hi there,

    Yesterday my car alarm was sounding & I was unable to use the key fob to turn it off or open the doors.

    After opening with the key, I noticed that the ignition lights were all on, I started the car as normal & it drives perfect. When I turn the engine off all the ignition lights come on again & also the rear parking lights.

    I have disconnected the battery for a few hours & after re-connection the same fault is present. The car drives fine, this problem is only when the engine is turned off & the key is removed, I currently have disconnected the negative terminal to save draining the battery.

    Any ideas / help much appreciated !!!
