The door panel has to be opened to determine if power is going to the window motor.
Radio light? Do you mean the radio isnt turning off?

Thanks for your reply!!

Neither the radio or the lights on the middle panel go out.

It’s been weird. First the door window nor controls on the driver door worked. Then, they worked for a few days. I just bought this used car so was familiarizing myself with the light features. After that, the door quit working again. Lol and I had to turn the radio off after turning the car off.

I also noticed that when I turned on the reading light in the front that it got extremely hot to the touch within 5-10 minutes.

What position do you have the light control switch, a manual position or automatic?
Have you looked at the owner's manual?
If you dont have one they can be downloaded.

This began happening when I was familiarizing my self with the manual and various light functions.
I had the lights on auto but tried to change to manual when this happened.

Have you placed the control back to Auto?

I turned it to manual but when I get in the car it is on auto. I’m taking it in and hopefully they can diagnose and fix the issues.
Thank you so much for your responses. It’s so nice to have someone listening.
