OLDS RADIO NEVER SHUTS OFF, ALMOST LIKE STUCK IN ACCESSORY POSTION

2001 Oldsmobile Alero • 99,700 miles

I came home today and I took my key out of the ignition and opened the door, and the radio did not shut off. I need help please I do not want to kill my battery. I checked the fuses and the only way that the radio will shut off is if I unplug the battery from the negative connector.

If the radio is staying on, there has to be a power supply to it all the time. This can be caused by a bad ignition switch or a short to power. Check the wiring for any damaged wires that can short.
