Some cars are designed to do that; and the radio will shut off when you open the driver's side door, the lights will probably "time out" after 30 seconds after leaving the car. if radio is aftermarket the installer gave constant battery power to memory and power leads p.s yellow wire gets constant power for memory the red wire gets hooked to key on or accessory terminal on fuse box

Cooling fan sometimes wont cut off?

With many cars now days, the fan may continue to run after the car is shut off, or they may even start and run for a while after the car is shut off. An engine will actually get hotter for a short time after being shut off. Sometimes that will trigger a sensor to turn on the cooling fan. If it continually runs after being shut off, it could be a faulty temperature sensor, or a faulty fan relay, or even a bad computer.

The radio is usually supplied power until you open one of the doors. Perhaps what you have is a bad door sensor? Try shutting off the car, and then opening the passenger door and see if it shuts the radio off. If that doesn't fix it, then whatever module the radio is connected to is probably bad.
