Probably normal. Most vehicles now days have RAP (Retained Accessory Power). That means that some of the accessories such as wipers, windows, radio, etc. stay powered up for a time, usually 10 minutes, after the ignition is turned off or until any door is opened. Whichever comes first. HTH. -Jim

had the same problem with wipers and radio not going off. cranked vehicle turned both on. pulled the horn relay and for a few minutes solved the problem .

My son has a 2005 Dodge 1500. His wipers will turn on sporadically, and his air stays on when his truck stops is parked and key out-and also he can crank his truck then take out the key and still drive off! Wacky stuff?! What's up????

The problem is the Ignitions Switch burned up in the steering wheel, 30$ replacement and about 10 mins of work, YouTube it, :) -Wicked
