Hey guys, this just started happening a day or two ago. When I shut the car off and open the door it doesnt cut the power to the electronics and radio still plays. I found that if I close the door and start the car, then shut it off and open the door. Everything works as it should until the next time I drive the car. Then I have to repeat this procedure. Everything in the car seems to be working fine. Lights come on when I open the door etc. Anyone ever seen this before?
It's the EXACT thing my car did until they replaced the driver door lock. There is a thread here with the PN and repair data.
Make sure when you go to the dealer (if under warranty) that you don't do anything to make the radio go off after you drive into the welcome bay. Mine was a intermittent problem and they had to see the defect before they replaced it under warranty.
If you are out of warranty, it should be an easy fix if you are handy at all. Someone else here did the replacement. Search for 'door lock'.
