The feature is called "retained accessory power" or RAP for short. The purpose is to allow accessories such as the radio, power windows and blower functions to continue for the drivers convenience after the key is turned to the off position or the key is removed. The RAP feature will remain active for 20 minutes or until the drivers door is open which ever occurs first.
Hope this explains it for you.
Regards,

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.

When key is pulled radio turns off even with doors closed. Also the door lock on the drivers door only works when the key is on.


The door jam switch control is closed under normal operation the radio plays until the door is open then shuts off this switch is located inside the door on the latch. this also can stop the door lock from operating also. This control is run by the GEM module.

My ford radio comes on when I open the door no key in ignition


Call Ford, it might be something that can be set to do that. Many cars have features that can be set up in that way. Other than that I have no idea? Good luck.

07 Chevy Cobalt: Radio back-lighting never turns off.


Newer cars come with a switches that delays their shut down of certain lights on the car. Sometime they allow you to get inside your home before the turn off but sometimes the switches malfunction and you light never turns off. I have had this happen on my 2006 vehicle several times in the past. Maybe these kind of switches one day will get a little better. Until then, you can ignore it or pay the big bucks and have a technitian repair it..

Radio does not go off when key is out of ignition and door is shut


You are on the right track...the problem appears to be on the driver side rear door actuator switch...locate this spring loaded sensor usually on the inside of the door by the hinges...spray it with PB Blastor, or WD 40...(Blastor works better) and move the switch back and forth...this should loosen up the sticking actuator and return your Buick to normalcy...Hope this helps

It has a switch on the main structor where your door is hinged that may be stuck. when the door opens befor the timer runs out it shuts of the radio but main lights are on their own timer.
