With the radio on, once car is turn off and doors are opened- the radio will not shut off.

when the radio is turned off - the clock will not shut down causing the battery to drain dead.

if i remove the radio fuse, my battery will keep a charge.

where is the short?

thank you

Bad door switch
by: Corvette-web-central

Sounds like door switch on the drivers door is bad. This tells the light to turn on and off along with the radio once the key is removed.
