Warning lights on - ignition off?

Drove my Mk2 Punto around town today and when I turned the engine off and took the keys out the following warning lights came on:

Steering wheel, engine managment, oil

There are no warning lights when driving, but now when I turn the engine off these lights pop up and stay on. I have tried disconnecting the battery earth for an hour but nothing has changed.

Any ideas?

Re: Warning lights on - ignition off?

The radio is the one the car came with when I bought it about four years ago:

Blaupunkt DMS san remo cd32

No idea if its an original. It does drain the battery if you leave the front panel pressed in. I generally leave it popped out and its OK.

sounds like faulty ignition switch, not turning off properly. try turning key back and forth a few times quickly that might clear it
