I don't understand something and was hoping someone can help...If I turn the car on with door open then shut off my nav/radio stays on and I don't know how to shut it down...I hit power on the radio but lights around nobs are still on...Is this normal? What am I doing wrong?

Retained accessory power- some circuits stay powered up until one of the doors are opened- there is a difference between the driver and passenger side. Read the owner's manual or search for the topic here for details.

But if I already have the door open before and after I start/shut off car how do I get the radio to shut off? That is what happened and my radio didn't go off for a bit...

I searched for "retained" with most recent results first. Here is one of the top answers, it describes the RAP function right out of your owner's manual:

I'd try opening & closing the driver's door if this is the one in question. If it is the passenger door, it has no effect on the radio.
