In Topic: Dashboard Stays On For Hours After Engine Off

Jeebowhite, extensive research thus far suggests that a new igniton barrel will cure your problem, something to do with the microswitch on the steering lock not being depressed properly when removing the key.


However, once it is off it will not come back on if that is the problem.


I think Stoney may have correctly guessed the source of my problem - the fuse box under the bonnet. Here is a photo of it when I opened it up (I removed the ECU fuse to have a look under it - mild corrosion on the bottom most pin).


I'm guessing here, but I believe the last person who took the lid off didn't refit it correctly, and it has filled with dirt. Is it likely this is the cause?


If so, how difficult is it to remove the box and give it a proper clean? (only the photographed area is affected)

The main one as in the one in the cabin (central fuse box)? Cars "asleep" again  now, but i'll get it down and have a look at it tomorrow.

Car is currently at the garage, they're going to clean the EGR out, see if that makes any difference. They say the engine is struggling to regulate fuel pressure as well, going to try some injector cleaner on the next tank, see if that helps.

Update - Read the codes with OBDII software when the EML came on - Got "Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Circuit High".


Split pipe or bust EGR? Thoughts?

All it says under DTC is "None." One of the reasons im at a loss.
