Radio auto on/off

Post by nissandan » Tue Feb 28, 2017 12:36 pm

Hi

Is there any reason why sometimes the radio will turn off after switching of the engine and opening the drivers door and other times it will only turn off when the car is locked (unless manually turned off)?

Thanks

For me always turns off on opening driver door, and ignition off. If you stay in car with radio on, (ignition off) it'll cut off after a short period. On older cars I had this period could be adjusted, but not on the QQ.

Mine is 2015 plate. Its weird. I cant do anything particular to replicate it.

Also ignition off when getting out. Sometimes it turns off when door opens other times keeps playing and only switches off when car is locked.

Nissandan, if this helps this is what it should do. Ours functions as written here and as Gel has stated - Dave ;)

I have managed to replicate it.

It happens if you lock the car whilst inside by the button on drivers door armrest and then open the door without first pressing the unlock button.

Not sure why?

That's a strange one and can't say one I've experienced in old car or new. I always lock my door by the button and when I park up I switch off engine then just open my door via handle and radio switches off. Are you locking the door after you switch off and then opening?

Scratch that. I tried it again. Did everything normally. Stopped, handbrake on, engine off, unlocked the door pressing switch and opened door and radio stayed on. Its weird. Its hit and miss and not everytime and I cant replicate it afterall.

Yes that is a weird one. I suppose as long as it doesn't stay on even after you've locked the vehicle means it's more of an annoyance. Hopefully someone can shed some light on your issue. Have you managed to asked your dealer if they can look into it? I had a strange issue where my heater fan would go on full if I did a sharp right turn. Took it in and apparently there was some lose connector causing it. Good luck figuring it out :)

It is booked in with them on 15th to try and solve a dash rattle so will mention this too. Yes its weird as it turns off when the car is centrally locked. And it isnt every time.

It just happened again and when it does that i can only centrally lock the car by the button on drivers outside door handle. If i try and lock the car with the fob the car just beeps at me??

Pulled up
Hand brake on
Ignition off
Open door
Radio stays on
Try and lock car with fob and it just beeps, wont lock
Press button on door handle to lock car
Radio turns off
Car locks

But this doesnt seem to happen every time and car only beeps when trying to lock with keys if radio didnt turn off when door opened??
