Radio stays on?

Today I out the stock radio back in my car and then started it up just to make sure everything was ok, but when I shut the car off and pulled out the key the radio stayed on? The only way I could get it to go off completely was to push the off button and then start the car again. I dont know what could have happened and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Mine stays on as well until I open the door then it shuts off or after a few minutes the radio will shut itself off.

My radio shuts off as soon as I remove the key regardless of whether I open the door or not.

It might be a setting as alot of newer cars let the radio keep playing when you take the key out. Usually opening the door is the triggle to turn it off.

The only audio settings I've ever seen in the personalization menu are 'Radio Display' and 'Audio Distortion Limiter'. Neither have to do with removing the key or exiting the vehicle.

I just bought mine 3 days ago (YAY)
But it did the same that night.Might be the cold freezing the grease maybe?
It stayed on for an hour then shut off, Then it unlocked the doors too.
But i fixed it by spraying WD-40 into the ignition key hole and it freed it up and its fine now.

One should never spray a flamable solution like WD-40 into an area where there are electrical components. There are other products that are safe for that.

^Agree on the better stuff out there. WD-40 is like the worse penetrating fluid anyway, it dries out and in a day or two and your parts are right back to were it was, or even worse.
