Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem could be internal in the radio or it may not be losing it's key-on power feed when the key is shut off, causing it to stay awake. If you remove the AUDIO 2 fuse does the radio turn off; is there power at this fuse with the key turned off?

Are you out of basic warranty?
