    I have a weird issue that, when I turn off my car and complete remove the key, the radio and command center stay powered. I can turn off the radio with the power button, but turn it one again without the key. Both the radio and command center have power. Any ideas one this? Could it be a relay that's stuck open?

    ^^ 96-98 (i think, my 96 and 97 have it anyway) have "retained accessory power." and some stuff will stay on for a few minutes or until you open the door.

    I think the issue might be with the door sensor not working, and despite the door being open, it stays on. Come to think of it, the lights didn't turn on when I opened the door. I'm going to test by opening the passenger door.

      Warden - It was a fuse issue. It's odd that a bad fuse would keep a system powered, since that would defeat the purposes of a fuse. Thanks!
