Remove cowling...under the bottom end of your ignition barrel is the red plastic plug which sits at the other end of your barrel and switches your igintion on when key turns, you will need a tiny allen key to remove this red plastic plug ...when the plug is off you can see the other end of your barrell, you will see that it is able to be flicked from side to side......you need to get a screwdriver and flick the barrell back in to the off position ...ignition off....put your key in and make sure you can switch the top end back in to the position the bottom of the barrel is in...then plug your red plug back in and that will do you as a temp fix mate to get the car switched off

Another way to stop the car if a auto is pull the fuel pump relay or fuse.

NEVER DISCONNECT THE BATTERY TO STOP THE CAR RUNNING!
