My 2019 RDX Tech does this but shuts off as soon as the driver's door is opened.

I'm not sure if you're joking but I think it's supposed to do that. That's what mine does. Shut off the engine, it goes into accessory mode - navigation and audio stay on. Press START/STOP again, or open the driver's door, and everything goes off.

The radio is stay on after engine turned off and it is off until you open the door. However, a few times, it still stays on when I open the door. I have to turn the engine back on and then turn off again.

Hmm, seems the audio and nav won't shut off with the START/STOP button. I thought it would. It just goes between Accessories Mode and ON. The infotainment system only shuts down completely when I open the door, and the seat moves back.

I can't tell you how many times when I first got the car I would get to a destination, turn off the car, collect my stuff then subconsciously go to turn the car off again (because my brain still heard the radio) only to turn it back on! That drove me nuts until I finally got used to it.

Its logical, IMHO. My 2019 RDX does the same and it makes sense.

What's odd to me, is that all of the cars I have owned in the last 10 years or so have had "retained power" when the IGN is shut off EXCEPT the '18 Honda CR-V! It is a wonderful feature that allows one to keep listening to the audio (or rolling down a window) when sitting in the car waiting for the better half to run into a store, etc...
