SOURCE: Chevy Equinox, 2005 - When door opens..radio does not go off

Actually this is the answer, well at least it fixed my problem and for others reading before you go to dealer or buy replacement anything check some wires first.. first my unlock button didnt work driver side, then driver side window quit working and then radio wouldnt shut off..the equinox doesnt have a push button sensor its inside the hinges so its not the sensor...if you open your driver side door and in the jam look for the rubber boot....loosen the rubber boot from the door and from the frame of the car so that you can examine the wires inside there....to my surprise 4 of my wires were ripped in half and 2 of them had previously had an attempt to repair with crimps...so check your wires before you do anything else if your having any of the problems that I was having! Hope this helps, no where did I find the answer I was looking for on any forum, hopefully this is the problem and its a quick fix, just seems like it may be a problem that will continue to happen!

Your stereos power must be hooked to your power line that turns the light on when opened. Youll need to relocate where your stereo gets its power from.

Radio will not shut off until I open and close another door


The theft light coming on is normal. Also, the radio will stay on for about 10 minutes after the key is removed and you do not open the doors.
