It should stay on for a few minutes or until you open a door, then it should shut off, if it doesn't then there is a problem with the delayed exit system and will have to be checked out or you could wind up with a dead battery and possibly a tow bill.

Actually, the RADIO doesn't stay on, but the clock light does, and the CD player keeps acting like it's trying to play a CD. I haven't been able to eject any of my CDs in about 2 weeks. Someone said maybe water has leaked into some wires from the windshield wipers? I think they said "cowls". Does that make any sense?

That area is usually sealed unless it is rusted out and then you will notice water in the floor, you could have a small windshield leak. But now that you stated that you have other troubles with the radio I suspect there is a crosscircuit in the radio head itself and most likely will have to be removed for repair or replace it with an aftermarket unit.
