When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on
I shut off the ignition and did not realize that the radio was turned down and the dome light and rear outside cab light stayed on and wore down the battery. Is the ignition the problem or is it elsewhere? What needs to be done to fix this? Thanks
Re: When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light...
I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.

This is normal...........The dome light will give you time to collect your belongings and the radio or music of your choice will stay playing for about 15 min unless the door opens..............It is just the way cadi rolls........Hope this helps.
If you're HHR is a 2006 (maybe 2007), looking up at your dome lamp, there is a three position switch (OFF-ON-ON w/ DOORS), check that the position of this switch isn't ON. On later models, the dome lamp ON-OFF is controlled through the instrument panel dimmer on the center of the dash above the radio.
I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?
Is there an off switch for the dome light? I'm guessing it'll be one of the switches that tells the sensor that your doors are closed and turns off the light.. switch will be on the frame of the car near the latch anchor.
If the lighter sparked, there may be a short (exposed wire) behind the lighter assembly. You may want to remove the lighter harness and check the wires.
It sounds like the dial that controls the direction of the air is not functioning properly. There's also a flap / pivot inside the vent assembly just above the blower (located in dash usually behind glove compartment) that controls which pipe the air goes into.
