Question about Cars & Trucks
On occasion my radio and dash lights will stay on when I turn the car off and remove the key from the ignition. I am unable to manually turn the radio off or adjust station as it appears locked but I can adjust the volume. I have gotten out of my car, armed it, and the radio and dash lights remain on. I have left it while standing there for 15 minutes and it did not change. I was told this was not possible but have video taped the incident 3x's. Other issue with the radio is that it will not keep it's station when the car has been turned of for a few hours or over night. It does not always lose the station after restarting. One time that I noticed it changed stations while I had the radio on and was driving down the road. Hyundai has replaced the radio 5 times and want to do it again! I figure if it hasn't fixed the problem after 2 radios then it's not the radio. They want to try to change out the fuse panel next. I have major fuel issues and wonder if these problems are somehow related. And, as I just posted, my RPM will go up and stay up when I set my cruise control, too. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. It's all warranty work but I am getting really frustrated. Service department rolls their eyes when I tell them there is a new issue or I complain b/c current issues are not resolved. What do they expect? I paid top dollar for this car, in it's class, and it's definitely not worth it.

the thing you not going to like what i say is remove the alarm system.
this is most likely causing your issues as the alarm interacts with some of the electrical's you described.
this may cut down a lot of your issue's. I recommend someone from a shop to do this as wires may need to be repaired while system is removed.

you might need to look at the wires on the back of the radio, there might be an inline fuse, also you best have a look at the main fuse panel in the car and see if the one for the radio and clock has blown

I can't answer because I have other question open, sorry, but here I send any comments and clues to solve (I hope).
For the FUSE PANEL, location and description, I suggest check the 2000-Pontiac-Grand-Prix-Owners-Manual (page 330 and next). A/C have one "diode". Check it.
About your radio display, sound like a internal problem, keep in mind that the CD is working.
The Security Litgh, its possible that you have any problem with the THEFT system or any aftermark alarm (if you have).

Yes, this is most likely a fuse issue-- likely one fuse for the radio, one fuse for the cruise control.
Owner's manual can be found here (free download in PDF):
The fuse panel you are looking for will be on the driver's side under the dash.
