Could have a problem with (RAP) Retained Accessory Power.
Relay Control of Retained Accessory Power (RAP)
Retained accessory power (RAP) is a vehicle power mode that permits the operation of selected customer convenience items after the ignition switch is turned OFF. These selected items will remain in operation until a passenger compartment door is opened or until the RAP function timer reaches its shut-off limit.
When the RIM module is in the RAP function as described above, it closes the RAP relay. This provides power during the RAP period for the components supplied by the RAP relay.
The RIM module opens the RAP relay to end the RAP function when it ends the RAP function as outlined in the previous text.
© 2017 General Motors Corporation. All rights reserved.

The modules listed below all receive a RAP message from the dash integration module (DIM) module over the serial data circuits. The DIM module monitors the ignition switch position, battery condition and passenger compartment door status to determine whether RAP should be initiated. The DIM module then sends a message to the listed modules telling them that they are in RAP power mode. The modules then support the operation of the systems under their control as required by their RAP power mode strategy.
RAP will end when one of the following conditions are met:
• The DIM module receives an input as a serial data message from the driver door module (DDM) indicating the opening of a passenger compartment door.
• The DIM module receives a message from its internal timer indicating the end of the RAP period after 10 minutes.
• The DIM module detects a decrease in battery capacity below a prescribed limit.
• The transition from OFF to RUN/ON or ACC of the ignition switch.



The DIM module then sends a serial data message to the listed modules ending the RAP function.
The modules receiving serial data messages for RAP functions are:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The radio
• The rear integration module (RIM)
• The vehicle communication interface module (VCIM)-Generation F1
• The vehicle interface unit (VIU)-Generation 2.6

The Rap relay could be bad (stuck contact's ) or one of the three module's that make up the body control system . Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes should be the first step in diagnosing this type problem .

06 Pontiac torrent radio continues to run when ignition is in off and key removed, even after drivers door opened, passenger door open then radio stops


Driver door switch ,ajar switch . This switch is a input to the BCM - body control module .
Retained Accessory Power Description and Operation
Retained accessory power (RAP) is a vehicle power mode that permits the operation of selected customer convenience items after the ignition switch is turned OFF. These selected items will remain in operation until a passenger compartment door or liftgate is opened or until the RAP function timer reaches its shut-off limit.
The class 2 RAP power mode is mapped to GMLAN serial data circuit as Off Awake power mode. Refer to Data Link Communications Description and Operation for more information on data link communications. The BCM monitors the ignition switch signals, battery condition and the doors status to determine whether RAP should be initiated. The modules that support the RAP power mode will operate the systems under their control as required by their RAP power mode strategy.
RAP will end when one of the following conditions is met:
• The BCM detects the opening of a passenger compartment door.
• The RAP timer expires.
• The battery capacity decreases below a prescribed limit.
• Any other ignition switch state is chosen.
The function supported in the RAP power mode is the operation of the radio.

It would go off on it's own in ten min.

2006 chevy impala radio & dash lights stay on now when ahut car off, key out and close and lock doors automatically. Never happened before. Help please..


Could be relay contact's stuck closed allowing power to stay on . Or it could be a BCM - body control module problem .

Retained Accessory Power (RAP)
The retained accessory power (RAP) system allows certain vehicle functions to operate for a specific amount of time after the ignition switch is turned OFF. The body control module (BCM) monitors the ignition switch position, battery condition, and each door ajar switch status to determine whether RAP should be initiated or terminated. RAP is controlled with two different methods; serial data and relay control. Some modules receive a RAP message from the BCM over the serial data circuits. Serial data controlled RAP is deactivated as required by their modules RAP power mode operation. Other subsystems are activated directly by the BCM through a RAP relay. Components and systems that are active in RAP are also activated anytime the ignition is any position other than OFF regardless of the door switch signals.

Relay Controlled RAP
The BCM keeps the RAP relay energized during all power modes, except Off-Awake and Crank. The relay is also energized for approximately 10 minutes after shutting the ignition OFF and removing the key, providing no door is opened.
Relay controlled RAP will end when one of the following conditions is met:
• The BCM receives an input from any door ajar or open switch indicating the opening of any door after the ignition key is out of the ignition.
Important: If the BCM is receiving any door ajar or open signal from those switches when the ignition key is turned OFF, RAP will not initiate.
• The BCM internal timer for the RAP expires after approximately 10 minutes.
• The BCM detects a decrease in battery capacity below a prescribed limit.
Systems powered by the RAP relay during the RAP power mode are as follows:
• A/T shift lock control solenoid assembly (w/ floor shifter)
• Power window circuit breaker
• RAP fuse
• Inside rearview mirror (DD6)
• Sunroof (CF5)
Serial Data Controlled RAP
RAP systems controlled by serial data are as follows:
Radio
Radio RAP activation/termination is the same as relay operation with 1 exception; the only door switch that will turn off the radio during RAP is the driver door open switch.
Vehicle Communication Interface Module (VCIM) (Onstar®)
VCIM RAP activation/termination is the same as radio operation with 1 exception; if there is an active call when the ignition key is turned off the VCIM will remain in RAP mode, and keep the radio in RAP mode until the call is terminated.

Sunroof will not work


Power is supplied to the Power windows and sunroof through the power window circuit breaker. That circuit breaker is supplied power through the RAP (retained accessory power) Relay, the RAP relay also supplies power to the radio. The RAP relay is also fuse protected by the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block. The RAP relay is energized by the BCM body control module.

The RAP relay is responsible for the radio and windows working after the igntion is turned off.

The first place to check would be the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block and then the RAP relay in the Body fuse block.

A list of the BODY relay block located on the left side of the dash to the right of the interior fuse block is below:

(1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay(1) Park Lamp Relay

When I turn the car off,and pull the key out,the radio light comes on and I can play the radio also.if I open the door,it all shuts off.What is wrong?


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.

Radio in 05 Malibu Maxx LS


The reason the radio is staying on is the retained accessory power not shutting down when the driver's door is opened. You can verify this by opening the door with the key on, if the door ajar light on the instrument panel does not light up the switch in the door latch is defective. You will need to replace the door latch.
