have a 1996 320, the car starts and runs fine, when i go to turn it off the key turns off and comes out of the lock but the engine still runs. The only way to stop the engine running is to disconnect the ecu. The dash still remains live so i have disconnected the battery and left it. I am seeking advise because i dont want to do that again as i know it is bad practise.!!!

My first thoughts are the ignition switch has failed

Life is odd, in all the time and post that I have done, never had this up before, and now twice in 7 days, engine will not turn off

It is probably the same car. I think it may be doing the rounds.

Sorry, been busy for a week. Yes it is a flip key. I re connected the battery the other day and all was good, it started and ran ok, tuned off an on several times then with the engine running a battery check warning flashed up and the engine cut out, I tried to start it again it was cranking ok just would not fire-up, I left it a minute it tried to start then failed, I turned the key off and removed from ignition and the dash stayed live as if ignition was still on pos 2, after about a minute it went off on it's own. I have disconnected the battery for now till I can get some more time on it.
