    205 problem Help!

    Hi guys

    Have a small problem with my 205gti yesterday. When I turned the ignition off and pulled the key out the battery and Stop lights were on in the dash. Had a look around the engine bay but to no avail.

    As a consequence my battery is now dead flat. Has anybody seen this and offer a remedy?

    It could be the key barrel for the key.
