Can the Berlingo Multispace radio be used without the ignition switched on?
#1
I can't see a way of using the radio when the ignition is switched off.

I usually stay in the car whilst my partner goes off to do a bit of shopping or whatever and would like to listen to the radio whilst waiting.

Is that possible please? (If not, it'll be the first car of the many we have owned that doesn't allow it  Sad)

Thanks in advance

In my Peugeot Partner B9 I just have to push the button for the volume with the ignition off to get the radio playing for about 15 minutes. When it stops just repeat.

Sadly that doesn't work on the Mulitispace. Any other suggestions please anyone?

Pressing the power button after iginition has been switched off, will power the radio for about 15 minutes, after which you can press it again if wanted should work in the Berlingo Multispace if it is still the original fit radio, my 2008 B9 Multispace does as did by 2007 M59 model Multispace previously, so either the original fit radio has been replaced or someone has been playing about with the wiring [people often use that live feed to power other things] Has your Multispace got any non-standard powered extras added? 
If everything is standard, it may be somewhere in the options menu to activate, I'll have to get my handbook out to look.

I am probably being dim but we don't seem to have a radio power switch. We switch it off by pressing the two volume buttons at the same time and start it up again by pressing the VOL+ button.

No, I don't think you're being dim, I have a much older Berlingo with a normal radio/CD player fit. The radio has an on/off button. From your photo, your Berlingo is a more modern version with the touchscreen but I wouldn't have thought they had done away with the facility to listen to the radio with the ignition off. Have a look through your manual to see it is an option that needs to be enabled through a menu on the radio?

Sadly no help in the manual so I phoned our nearest Citroen dealership and spoke to Colin in the Service Dept (Yeoman's in Exeter).
Apparently our model doesn't have the facility to use the radio without the keys in the ignition!
First car I have ever had (and I have had a lot!) that doesn't allow the radio to be used in this way.  Angry  Huh

Don't know if it applies to your model but the earliest ones had a different fuse slot which by moving a fuse the radio could be used with or without the ignition on.  

Nowadays its called  " progress"   Dodgy  in case you use too much fuel (I think) .
