A: check light and maintiance lights keep coming back on after resetting?

This is not the check engine light. It ls the CHECK light between th speedo and tack [below the VDO emblem]. As to the wires to the antenna there are two wires in the trunk that appear to be original {1 red and 1 white] I do not have a wiring diagram to verify. Antenna does not funtion up or down. but does have good reception.Common sense says there should not be power with key off. Am I wrong Thanks for the help
