radio stays on...

just purchases a 2006 goat today it has 55000 miles and i notices when i got out of the car and locked it the radio remains on. i tried starting it up and truning it off and locking it again it did the same. i then pressed the off button on the radio and locked the car but the radio light is still glowing anyone have any ideas??

Turn off the radio and lock the car as normal.
If the door unlocks itself in an hour,your ignition lock is stuck.
Spray some graphite in it.
If it doesn't work you might need a new lock.

When you remove the key, the plate at the switch pops out
and this turns off the Accessory side of the switch. If
it stays in, gently tap it with your finger to get to pop out.
Leaving the key in the switch while in the car is accessory mode.
Also, while in the car with the key out, you can turn on the radio to get to accessory mode. It will let you listen to the
radio, run the windows and power the 12 volt power
receptacles for about 20 min.

I don't know about that. I think you'd be wasting you money on that switch. Opening the door doesn't turn off the radio in a GTO. Removing the key from the ignition does.

My guess is that your answer lies somewhere in what AlaGreyGoat says in post #3.

this might be a real dumb question but, seeing as how im new for a week to the gto world... Are the clock and odometer supposed to stay on after closing and locking up the vehicle????

The odometer, yes. I don't have the OEM radio so I don't recall if the clock stays on or not.
