Hi, you have either one of the two problems.
\015\012First one is that your key switch is knackered & your ignition switch will have to be replaced.
\015\012The second one is, did anyone clock your car before you bought it or it is possable that the eprom in the dash unit has went la la.( this little chip controls a lot on the dash inc the mileage).
\015\012You can tell if the key switch is knackered if the radio still keeps going as well as the heating system.
\015\012The other fault that also links to this that the dash relays in the fuse box area could be faulty.
\015\012I would start with these simple things first before ripping out the clocks & key switch.
\015\012It is possable it could be a stuck relay. Just remove each one in turn with the ign on to see which one drops out the dash.
\015\012Will check here on my system on this model to see what way it is wired.
