Open one of the other doors and see if the radio shuts off, if it does you have a defective door ajar switch in the drivers door. The system that keeps the radio and other accessories on is called "delayed exit"

My 2006 Ford Fusion's radio won't turn off. Everytime I take the keys out and open the door the radio doesn't cut off!! Why!!!

U have a defective door ajar switch most likely, if this switch remains closed then the delayed exit feature stays on, this means the radio will stay on because the delayed exit module didn't sense the door was opened, try opening the passenger door to confirm this problem, any door should turn off the radio

Radio won't shut off

Not 100 % sure on the Mustang, but on F150 this is 1 of 2 places.

First check is if the dome light comes on. If not, check the door switch, and the wiring between the door and the A pillar for a broken wire ( F150 this is a Black w/ yellow wire ).

Second, in the driver's side door sill, under the trim plate, there is a splice in there, that is only in tape. The F150s ( 04-08 ) can have water in the sill with the splice, and it freezes and stops working.
A lot of wires to look through, but you find something similar.
The door sill usually has other issues with it, apart from the radio saying on.

Start with looking through the door to A pillar harness, if your adio stays on, and you don't have dome lamps
