Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Open Question

2001 Sport Trac 4.0L 4wd battery was dead last night. When the key is off, the clock output on the radio stays on, and the power lock buttons stay lit. Is this a relay problem or could it be a bad ground (maybe near the radio)? The clock started staying on a couple of days ago.

    Charged the battery and checked current draw, it was right at 1 amp with the key out of the truck and doors closed. Is this normal? Next step is to start pulling fuses until the clock goes out, pulling the radio fuse (#20) did nothing to the clock.

    10/09/2010 Parasitic draw was .96 to 1.04 amperes, and the clock stays on in the radio at all times (turns off every few minutes for a few seconds, then comes back on). I disconnected the battery and charged it, and now cannot set the clock time, the only button working is the minutes down (tune -) but the buttons all work fine for the radio or cd. Is the radio bad????

    Working off a hunch ( or an extremely educated guess) I was able to find the cause of the problem. It is fixed now.

    Problem solved! The radio had a short in the clock circuit. Replaced radio and is fine now.

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

I have the same problem - the radio and the lights for the power door locks stay on even when you take the key out and open then drivers door which is supposed to turn them off automatically. I have noticed that when you turn the key back to the accessory position and then off everything shuts down.

2001 Montero Sport cigarette lighter interior light will not turn off


No its not normal and yes that could drain the battery.
I would think the light around the ignition key lock would be on too.
Probably a courtesy light problem - there is a timer somewhere that turns those lights off after you close the doors.
If it is just the light for the lighter you could cut that wire.

Not the Key but the ignition itself. Replace teh ignition module where the key is inserted to start the vehicle and that should resolve the issue.

Hi I just bought a 2002 chevy malibu LS. However when i went to start it, the battery was dead. When i turn off the ignition, the radio and the clock was still on. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong...


buy a new battery if this dosnt work trying looking into a starter or ignition relay or coil pack this all will make it not turn over but the radio and clock will work, also look into if your security light is on if so the key could be broke which would make it a problem cause then you have to go to a dealership and buy a new one which might cost a bit. hope this helped :)

Hold on your dash is telling you that (active trac) is on. There should be a botton on your dash listed
A/T MODE just push it and the HOLD should go off.

Battery keeps dying due to radio+clock staying on


your radio is staying on? you have a bad door switch.the bcm does not see door opening and thus does not turn radio off. most likely the drivers door.
