    Very confused, just found my 325tds dash lights on. All doors were locked and no keys in the ignition.

    Under further examination I found that the logic has become twisted such that when the ignition is turned off everything shuts down as expected. But if the door is then locked the "lights on" warning buzzer sounds and the dash, radio, a/c, etc. lights all light up and remain lit. No other lights appear to be lit.

    The central locking also seems a little freeky, locking and instantly unlocking on the 1st attempt. Then all is well.

    Any suggestions?

    Check your radio wiring again, also check the wiring out at the tailgate hinge, it's a common problem area, even on Tourings, see here http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...problems-t208/
