I apologize if this has already been covered but I wasn't sure how to word it so the search function would find something useful.
The problem I am having is that my stereo is staying on after I turn the key off and open the door. Until recently the system worked fine and would keep power to the stereo for up to 15 minutes or until a door is opened like it's supposed to. Now it seems to turn off the stereo system whenever it wants after I get out.
Has anyone run into a problem like this? Any ideas on what could cause it? Any ideas how to fix it without going to the dealer?

The dome light works fine. Comes on when I open the door and goes out after 15 seconds or so like it always has. Where are the door switches on an 07? I haven't seen a normal pin switch in the jamb like most vehicles have
I would say to check the wiring of the radio - the radios are always supplied with power to retain memory, but there is a separate trigger that tells the radio when the truck is on or off. I'm guessing that's where your problem is.
