Normal operation of the Jetta Radio, is that it will stay on, when the key is turned off, however it will turn off when the key is removed from the ignition. Mine functions the same way. I guess it is so that you can change from The Engine Running to the ACC position without your CD stopping, or your Radio turning off. IF yours is behaving differently than this, let me know, otherwise I would say that your Radio is working properly.

My radio in a 1995 Chevrolet 1500 will not turn off with the key what are some trouble shooting facts


There are two fuses for the radio. One fuse circuit is hot all the time, that circuit is for radio memory and clock, where applicable. The other fuse circuit goes hot with key in acc or on, that fuse runs the radio. That is the fuse circuit you need to check, should not be hot with the key off. If it is hot with key off, either something wrong with ignition switch or that circuit is shorted to voltage, somewhere.

When turn key ignition off radio and clock stay on


Even when you remove the key from the lock?
Try to turn the key a little more to the left to be sure to move out of the Accessory position.
Hope this helps.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

Radio diagraham


get a wire tester. One end has an alligator clip the other looks like an ice pick with a light in it. put the alligator clip piece on a grounded object. Turn the key on. Poke the ice pick end onto each wire. the wires that cause it to light up are the hot wires (power going to them) sort them out separate. now turn the key off. Which ever of the power wires doesn't light up with the key off is the wire that turns the radio off with the key. However the main (usually yellow wire) on the radio need to be hooked to a wire that has constant power as thats what stores all of your stations and keeps the time on the clock.

You don't say what kind of vehicle we are talking about, but it is safe to assume your ignition switch needs to be replaced.
