Delay in radio turning on and lights turning off

I've noticed a delay between when the engine turns over and when the radio comes on. There is also a delay between when I lock and shut the door and the interior lights go off. Is this a lurking electrical problem?

Sounds perfectly normal.. when you turn the engine over all power is diverted to the fuel , ignition and starter .. once the engine is running everything else powers back up... The interior light is designed to be that way , some have a adjustment as for how long you want them to stay on .

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..

2005 chevy express 3500 door light and radio stay on when you turn van off take the key out and open the door. how to fix


This Van has a system in it called delayed exit, this means the radio and other accessories stay on for a time as long as none of the doors are opened, when the door is opened the module senses that switch in the door is activated and shuts everything off. The easy way to test this is open the passenger door, if all shuts off you found the problem, the driver door switch is defective. the switch is attached to the door lock inside the door.

04' Ford FreeStar - The Radio Stay On When Van Is Off


Nothing wrong with it. When you remove the key, it stays on for about 20 minutes. It gives you time to finish listening to your radio and roll up the window. Once the driver door is open, everything shuts off or if 20 minutes has passed.
