Question about Cars & Trucks
I can manually shut the radio off but the lights on the radio still stay on and drain the battery
Check wiring and see if power source is to wrong lead, usually the constant power wire would be wired to the clock or auto antenna. The poer source for turning the radio on should be wired to the power source that is tied to the ignition, so when you turn your key off the power will be off as well.

It's a monster pain to get to them, but it's doable. Once you empty the trunk, you'll see 4 black knobs - approx 1.5 inches in diameter. You'll need to remove all of these (they just unscrew, but they are plastic, so be careful not to strip the threading) in order to access the rear light assembly.
They're in there snug, but once you find the appropriate sized socket (I wish I could recall well enough to tell you what size, b/c I remember that it WAS an odd size), you'll have to remove all 3 bolts and then push the whole assembly out from inside the trunk.
Once the assembly is out, you will see the rear of the sockets, which simply push and turn to get the lamps out of. As long as you have everything open, I suggest changing ALL of the lamps (brake, tail, and turn signal) on BOTH sides, since the lamp life for all of these is about the same and it's such a pain to get to them in the first place.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help! Not sure why the owner's manual doesn't mention that."
OMG. I replaced the battery in my 06 G6 and had the same problem. the windows would not roll up or down how they did before. I read the answers on here and it does work. Hold up the window switch for ten seconds and it resets. You will have to do it to each window. Worked great. Thanks
