Key ignition

Feels like something is out of place in my ignition, when I take the key out, the radio stays on so I have to put it back in and mess with it to turn it all the way off...I do realize that the radio stays on until I open and shut the door but this is not the case. Also sometimes its hard to put the key in. Started happening yesterday. Ive heard that it could be a sensor that is attached to the lock cylinder? Any help would be appreciated. 2001 Boxter

Yes, you need to replace your ignition switch. 5 minute fix.

Just pull out the air duct and take a peek at the switch first. Esp if you are not the original owner, it in its pass it may have been updated to a white switch, if so, order a switch for a 2005 up,
