 I never figured my wife's switch problem out. I changed the switch twice and 
it was the same thing with both new switches. Now when I turn the key off the 
radio goes of with the key in. If I leave the key in the radio comes on after 
an hour or so. So now I just take the key out every time I turn the car off. 
I haven't had it stay running with the new switch like it did with the old 
switch turned off but I'm not sure if that was a switch problem in the first 
place because all I had to do to shut it off is put it in neutral which I have no 
idea why that would have anything to do with it but it worked every time. 
Gotta love these cars though.
