As for the dome light, on your steering column, either your blinker switch or yeah, I would say your blinker switch, there should be a little dial that just turns left and right, it might also be where you turn on your headlights, in fact that's where I would actually start LOL sorry just dawned on me what we were talking about, where you turn on your headlights there should be a little knob that's attached to it that just twist to the left and to the right or up and down that is or should be setting your dome light timer. I'm not sure about your radio.

This can be one of 2 things.

1. The door ajar switch ( part of the door latch ) is gummed up and a good spraying of WD-40 can clean it out. Could take several times to cure the issue.

The other specific to New Body Style 04-08 MY F-150 :

2. There is a bad splice in the driver's side door sills. On the SUperCrew it is usually closer to the c-pillar on the rear door.
These are pictures of the 2 splice locations :


The splice is a 3 way splice ( 2 wires to 1 wire ) and covered in something that looks like hockey tape. The splice gets wet, and no longer wrks. You might have to go back further into the harness to find wire that is not discolored if this is the case. Takes quite a bit of time to find the splices, as there are a lot of wires in the door sill.

SOURCE: door open indicator light stays on , automatic door locks go on & off while driving and dome light and outside mirror lights wont go off after the car is turned off

i would hazard a guess and say that wires in the rubber boot from the door pilar to the door are damaged or the connection block in the door pillar in this the terminals are corroded or something similar

Why would my van radio stay on after I turn the car off and open the door?

Does the dome light come on when you open the door? It should work off the same trigger.

I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire an the radio seems to stay on even when the car us turned completely off. What does that mean because it keeps killing my battery.?!

The most likely answer is that your vehicle's door pin switches aren't working. When you open the driver's door, does your dome light turn on? Your radio works with the vehicle's data bus to stay on until the door is opened; if the system can't tell that the door has been opened, then it won't turn off. The door pin switch should be mounted at the front of the door opening.

When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on

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.
