You don't say what problems you're having with the stereo? or what model year your Berlingo is, but I assume it's to do with the Eco-mode in the vehicle and it turning off the stereo?
what exactly do you mean by "Remote turn off cable"?, usually the "Remote" cable for stereos (or at least the ones I've fitted) is as you say to remotely turn on amplifiers etc.
Are you referring to the Red (+12v) and Yellow(switch) wires in the radio wiring loom? As far as I know you need to swap these around ie red to yellow/yellow to red.
There's some info if you search on this forum, but if you're using the right adapter for the wiring between car and stereo then there's really very little that needs doing.
Is this of any help?

sorry i drive a 53 plate 2.0 hdi van, and yes i mean that my stereo stays on when i turn the ignition off.. will swapping the red and yellow wires fix this?
thanks for the info! very much appreciated!
how do i upload a picture to this post to show my wiring? i just ran out to the van to try the red to yellow, yellow to red thing but my
wiring looks nothing like the picture above.

yes i tried this and after a while it does turn off and then a short time after that it goes into ecomode.
what im after is for the stereo to turn off with the ignition like factory fit and other aftermarket units iv seen.
thanks for the input tho
Swap the yellow and red, that should sort you out
