Default Electronic heater controls staying on with no keys

the problem im having is my heater controls stay on and kill my battery with no keys in the ignition. its a 1998 ssei. Any Ideas?


I checked the actual controls there fine the orange acc wire coming off the ignition keeps power with no key. what else could be shorting this circuit?

Do you mean the display on the dash stays on and/or the buttons continue to function, or does just the blower run?

Sounds like your RAP module isn't powering down when the door is opened or after two minutes?

(Retained Accesory Power).

Someone with an FSM for that general year may be needed to chase it down.

But does the RAP control Interior lights and ECC?
