obc and radio dont turn off with key out of ignition

Hey, today I turned off my car, took the key out and the obc, radio, light switch lights, and windows were all on. The car did not want to lock via the remote either. I pulled a few fuses (obc,central locking....), and also disconnected the battery for about 20 minutes. At this point I have no idea as to where to proceed, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

well first of all, u can still play the radio without the key in the ignition, and windows can still work for a little big after car is turned off.

Electronics don't shut off until a door is opened.

Have you removed or checked the fuses lately? There are a couple of them for the radio, one of them is probably misplaced or blown. That alone will keep radio on after you turn off the ignition until you turn it off manually. In the normal condition (or factory set) if you had the radio on while driving, it would be off when switch the ignition off. Windows and sunroof will still be operable for a while after you turn off the car.

I meant the diplay for the radio is still on, which shows the time along with the obc and working windows regardless of doors being open or duration of time

Pretty sure that's configurable. Mine turn off when I turn off the ignition.

Resolved: Took off the battery terminals both positive and negative overnight, started the car the next morning and everything turned off properly.
