    If there is no DIS and wont turn off then there is a can bus error, the radio is connected directly to the cluster with the can hi & lo wires. These are used to turn the radio on/off, lighting, radio station display in the DIS and GALA information.

    Not sure what the exact fault is, but it's certainly something in that area.

    Yeah it sounds like its wired up to a direct permanent live.
    Can you turn on the stereo with the ignition off?

    You can turn on all Audi HU's with the ignition off/keys out. The difference is if the HU shuts down after an hour, this means it's running without CANBUS telling it the ignition is on
