Question about 1994 BMW 3 Series
When i turn the ignition key to the off, the radio and lights go out but the ingine keeps running. ITs a 1994 BMW 318 i
Sounds like a faulty ignition barrel! If you take off the trims underneath the steering column you'll be able to gain access to the ignition barrel casing where the key goes. By undoing the casing you'll be able to turn off the engine with a simple flat bladed screwdriver.
Ignition barrels arent too expensive to have replaced, the other problem that might occur is the chance of needing a new set of keys or to have your current keys programmed to the new barrel (Normally a new set of keys is the common procedure with a new barrel)!
Hope this helps
