Answer: I assume you mean the radio clock light stays on after you turn the key to the off position. Based on my research there are there are three things that can cause this.

First, there is the possibility of a bad diode in the radio itself which will require the replacing or disconnecting the radio.

Second, there is a short somewhere causing the clock to stay on. Finding such short can be a hassle and it might be easier simply to disconnect the clock then trying to find the short.

Finally, there is the (rare) possibility that the Body Control Module (BCM) has gone bad but this is unlikely if this is the only issue you are having.
