Start Button / Audio Question

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I have always wondered if its possible to keep the radio on when I turn my cars engine off.

I have the keyless start button and every time I press it to turn off the engine everything goes off as well.

Is there a way to turn just the engine off when pressing it?

thanks

Usually you can press the radio power button to enable the radio for one hour.

I suppose you could disconnect the ignition link at the back of the radio loom but is it really worth all the effort for something that only requires a push of a button?

I just press the button again - pre ignition so radio is on then press ok on steering wheel as car screen will tell you door open and keyless is engaged !

Wouldn't it be easier just to turn the radio back on for the 1 hour countdown as Stoney suggested? <_<

soz if im wrong but when you start the engine you have to put clutch down right? otherwise you just turn on the power is there not like a reverse to that, like clutch down and off button.... or off button without clutch??? just a suggestion...

Mines the same but to be honest if it didn't turn off everyone would be forever leaving them on and not noticing.
