RADIO WON'T TURN OFF WHEN KEY IS TAKEN OUT OF IGNITION

Today,my radio wouldn't turn off when i took the key out and shut the door. In addition, my overhead lights did not light up when I opened the door, but do light up if i push them on manually. The rear outside light stopped working too. Are these items connected?

    I have the same problem. In addition the chimes are not functioning if I leave the lights on and the keys are out of the ignition. Also my driver's side airbag light on the display shows that the air bag is off.

    In addition to these once I start driving the doors have stopped automatically locking.



    I uncovered all the wires on the driver's side from front to back but can't find any visible problems.

The other item is could be, if not a defective door switch, is some of the new MY trucks develop broken wires from the door to A-pillar.

This should be a black w/ yellow stripe wire in the harness between the door and a pillar. Not very common, but has happened more then once.

If the coach battery is connected and the radio left on then the radio will turn off automatically 30minutes after ignition turned off or if the coach battery disconnected then the radio will turn off with the ignition! It is so the radio can be listened to while camping/sleeping out

Help! My 2009 Dogde Grand Caravan's key can unlock/lock the doors but won't start the ignition nor turn on lights, radio or lower windows. What do other owners or mechanics think it might be?


Your style of key is a Security style. Mine on my 05 Caravan retailed over $100. Thankfully the place I purchased it from took care of the cost. If you have another key that has been working try it. If it doesn't work I'm sure the Dealership will be able to help you. Look in your owners manual to see if there is a fuse that controls this.

I have a 1996 vw jetta and i turn off the ignition, remove the key and still have power to the radio and door sensor.


Some cars allow power to the radio, etc. even after the key is turned off and taken out of the ignition. If everything turns off when the door opens, then it is most likely normal for your car. I know the newer VW Jetta's do this.
