: Odometer on all the time normal???

The dillemna with this car continues...Finally got the doors unlocked but thats another story.
I noticed that when I shut off my car and removed the key, my odometer and trip meter stayed on all the time. At one point at night I could have sworn that the backlight for the center console front window rolldowns buttons were on too. Is this normal or did the guy before me leave with some weird wiring battery drain? 1991 525i, German specs.

Mine turns off.
The window buttons stay on for a bit. When you lock it they should flash and turn off.
