Hey guys ... I recently uninstalled a Pioneer head unit, screen, and tv tuner, to upgrade to the new avic-n1.  Right before I uninstalled the system (and I think after I installed a gamecube), whenever I would shut the car off, the units would stay on for a few seconds before turning off, even when the key was out of the ignition.  I didn't think too much of it.  Now, I have put the stock radio back in for a couple weeks, and now when I turn the car off, the radio stays on for about 10 seconds, then shuts off.  Do you have any idea what this could be?  When I put the radio back it, at first it would not play.  I found that the fuse for the radio was not making good connection in the fuse panel (I used a fuse tap for some acc. power of other components) but I got that fixed.  Now though, if I move the fuse a little it will shut off the radio, because the fuse has to be JUST right.  So anyway ... any ideas?  Thanks in advance guys!

First off, replace that fuse holder.

The car is brand new, 2004 civic ... do you still think that is necessary?  The whole fuse box?  Thanks

Well, I figured out the problem with the radio ... it had to do with a power inverter that I had wired to the cigarette lighter adapter ... when the power inverter was turned off, the radio would stay on for 10 sec ... when the inverter is on right before the car shuts down, the radio will shut down ... I've got a fix now for it ... thanks for the help though!  Still debating on replacing that fuse box ... it would cost $90 to do it myself, and i don't feel comfortable doin it.   But anyway ... thanks!
