like the title says, the radio and electronics will stay on for about 10-15 seconds after the key has been removed and the doors of the truck open. Any idea what could be causing this. I searched, but couldnt find my exact problem. Thank you in advance

drivers side door switch? next time it does it, try opening the passenger door and see if it turns everything of?

my 2004 Z would do the same thing randomly, but if i opened the passenger door, that switch would always trigger it to shut off the radio and such.

Actually my 09 does that with all 3 doors except the driver door. Honestly I don't know what it is at all. I'm pretty sure that if all the other door sensors were broken I'd know.

There was a year that it changed so it's only triggered by the drivers door, but can't remember what year they did that.

So, thing to check. When you open the drivers door, does the dome light operate properly?

relax!!! is supposed to do that from the factory, and to me it is a nice feature 'cause if any of the passengers exit the truck and the driver stays he can keep on listening to the radio.
that happens on my '07 silverado nnbs but it didn't on my '03 silverdo, first time that happened I noticed it right away and I said cooooooooooooolllllllll :imo

You relax.:p

I wasn't concerned about it. 09Blue seemed like he wasn't sure if his 09 should do that so I confirmed that mine does it, too.

My 08 Silverado has the problem with the drivers door too. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the ignition switch. It is intermittent, and I can never get it to do it at the dealer. I think it is the key switch maybe. When it happens, I put the key back in, and jiggle it a little, and that shuts the radio off every time.

My 04 does it sometimes too. Ill take the keys out and open the door and everything stays on. Ill just put the keys in and turn on, turn off and it usually works right. Never concerned me enough to worry about it.

Make sure your window switches are plugged in good like said earlier. I remember when i was putting my door speakers in i ran to the store real quick and when i got out(door panels werent on) and nothing would shut off.
