Default When I turn off the car, the radio and the clock stays on, whats wrong?

Earlier tonight, after an hour long drive, i turned the car off and was surpised to see and hear that the radio and clock were still on. (even after the key came out of the ignition) I tried inserting the key and turning the car on and off a few times, but it didnt solve the problem. I also tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, but that didnt help. Then, finally i took the car for a 1 minute drive and when i returned to turn the car off, the radio and clock turned off too.

Anyone know what could have caused this to happen? How are the radio and the clock linked? I do have a aftermarket kenwood deck, but its been in the car for more than a year and has not given me any problems. thanks in advance for any input or help.

You may have a problem with your ignition switch. Next time it happens, see if your headlights can be turned on, too. I'd let the dealer diagnose this one, especially as you are most likely under the 36/36 warranty.

I had this and fixed it. The problem was something was plugged into the yellow/blue striped wire in the harness. Check that. I'm posting on the other write-ups for this as well.
