Turn the key to the off position ;) :lol:

Never heard of that one. Do other things still work after you open the door such as the windows, sunroof if you have one and wipers?

All the windows, moonroof, lights work...its like it a electric car. When I went out to recheck it the radio had turned off. Maybe it times out to save the battery? Maybe Its a electric car now, Ill try driving it in a bit w/o starting it. I will call it the prish-3.

The RAP circuit turns off after 20 minutes. :yup:

Could be a faulty door switch. :duh:

Have you added anything aftermarket to the electrical system? The capacitors will back-feed RAP and never let it shut off until they're sapped. Try rolling down windows or cycling door locks several times to drain and see if anything changes.

Good point :yup:

Check to see if your interior lights come on when you open the driver door or not. Also check and see if everything shuts off if you open one of the other doors.

That's a new one. Let us know what you find out. I am betting on the door switch as well. You may want to try opening a different door and see if that shuts it off.

ding ding ding goes the door
no no no goes pete the service writer at HUMMER OF NOVI

So after finding the door actuator in its non typical spot (on the latch side not the hinge side) I noticed it didnt look the same as the rest, it was clearly bent. They said this was not a manufacture default.... Then for the first time I took it to the big hummer dealer in grand blanc michigan, by big I mean this dealer has all the GM products so figuring out what building to go to sucked but they said no problem especially after the service writer not the tech noticed that all of them on each door was loose which probably contributed to it bending in the door. Anyone with a 2008 should go check theirs.

X2. Does the radio turn off when you open another door?
