Hi
I would suggest its a problem with the 'code' system if the light is staying on as it should go off after 0.7 secs. Got to go now but will read my manual & get back to you tomorrow

What year is your car? According to the manual the key being switched on causes the injection control unit(CCM) to ask the electronic key control unit(CCE) for the code of the key. If this is OK it gives a signal to the CCM to allow the engine to start. If it doesn't recognise it it puts the code light on and also the injection light.
Have you got the master key? If so I would try the re-memorising procedure. (It worked for me when my code light wouldn't go off after doing some work on the car )
1 Insert master key and turn to MARCIA and then back to OFF as soon as the code light comes on.
2 Within 10 secs remove master key and insert a normal key and turn to MARCIA and then back to OFF as soon as the code light comes on.
3 Repeat step 2 for any other keys.
4 Repeat step 2 with the master key again.
If you fail to do a step within the 10 secs you have to start from scratch.
Make sure you do all your keys as I initially did only one of mine and the when I put the non reprogrammed one in it stopped the other one (and master key) working again.

Good luck

Mike :rolleyes:

Hi again well car still not very happy :confused: have got all 3 keys and tried rememorising code but doesnt want to know, tried everything else as well except inspecting ecu which not beitng all that electronically minded dont really want to do in case of static, therefore all can hope for is an auto elecy to help us out sob :( still praying that it is only a bit of water or dirt within ecu and not chip or ecu itself
anyway just to let you know mine is a 95 n reg widebody v6 so anyone else with any ideas please drop us a line, and thanks mike for your hint tried but nowt sadly

Let us know what the auto electrician finds. I had a friend with similar problems and his turned out to be a faulty relay somewhere which wasn't too expensive. He's just got himself a Mitsubishi FTO(import)and is getting rid of his well worn 155.
