Radio turning on while bike is off

I have a 13 Roadglide an have noticed that the radio has been coming on when I have turned it off and turned the bike off also. When I turn the bike back on hours later the radio turns on also without turning it on. I let the bike sit and radio off without the tender for about 4 days and when I went to start it the radio was on and the bike would not start. Put it on the tender for a couple of hours and bike starts with radio off. Was wondering if this is a result of a battery going dead? It's almost 5 years old. Or something deeper. Talked with dealer device writer and they thought the radio may need to be recalibrated. Going in for a service next week and having it checked. I apologize for the long explanation.

Radio has mind of its own. Wow that is scary.

Other possible reasons that I can think of are:
bad ignition switch
bad kill switch
bare 12v power wire to the radio

Contact Iron Cross Audio, they specialize in the Harmon Kardon HD stereo repairs. Like Farmers Insurance, they have probably seen it, done it and fixed it.
