weird question about power windows in the car

I have a 08 focus SES 2 door / stock. ok best way for me to describe this is you know when you turn off your car and pull the key out you can still roll down the windows and play the radio until you open a door, then everything turns off. Well i have noticed lately that when i open the door the radio turns off but i can still roll down the windows and when I lock the car I can still see the lights that illuminate the window/door lock switch stay on. Also I have left it locked over a weekend and the lights would still be on. Did I change something by mistake? I have never messed with (for example the seatbelt chime) to enable or disable but do you guys think this is an option? If not do you think it can be a problem with the ignition? The car has close to 70k miles and never had a problem with anything!

Thanks in advance

*admins please move to correct forum if needed.

Radio turns off when you open the door, but lights and windows go out when you subsequently close the door, normally, right?

So, I would guess that the switch that says your door is closed either has to be adjusted or replaced.

no for example i turn off my car pull key out. (everything works) as soon as i open door the radio turns off, dome lights come on but i can still roll the windows up and down. if i stay in the car and close the door then dome light goes off but i can still roll windows up and down. its very strange. my wife has an 08 also but 4 door and on hers everything works till you open that door, then no radio and no power windows. can some one please try this if you have an 08 or newer and see if i am correct? bit of a head scratcher
