Radio question


Recommended Posts

Just a question for knowing purposes really. Father in law sits in car when the wife is in shops when car running just to listen to radio, no heaters or anything else just fear of battery running down if he uses the radio when car turned of.

I told him he should be ok as the ford focus and cmax radios switch of after about 60min automatically to save the battery and i think this time is shortened if the battet is lower than normal.


I leave mine on all the time with car turned off when cleaning car or waiting on someone in shops and always is ok.


So does this sound right or am i wrong there lol!

The radio will switch off after 1 hour if the ignition is switched off. Haven't heard about it switching off sooner if the battery voltage drops though?
