Is there a way to keep the radio on when car switched iff
#1
Have a 2023 k9

Is there a way to keep the radio on, it turns off after few mins one the engine is not running

Previous cars might turn off after say an hour, but you could knock them on again. It’s handy when camping/ working in the garden / driveway / waiting for my wife etc

I’ve left radios on in cars for over 24 hours before and not had any issues starting up the next day

No. The car switches off all power in a little while.

Just get a portable speaker and be done with it.

Thankyou, that’s what I saw. I noticed I can turn the radio on for a few mins then it goes off.

If I push the radio power button again the speedo twitches a bit and the phone connects to Bluetooth

I could just get a separate device for music, but I’m trying to declutter all the nonsense I carry about

Maybe, and maybe not. If there's ANY integration at all with the car systems I wouldn't touch it.

If I click on the radio button after my 2020 K9 has had the ignition turned off, the radio comes back on again, but the timing is variable - if I click the button immediately after turning off the ignition, the radio comes back on straightaway, but if I leave it several seconds, there's usually a fairly lengthy pause while it seems to be thinking what to do. Either way, the radio can then stay on for maybe 30 mins (I usually turn the radio off after that length of time anyway, though subsequent attempts to switch the radio back on tend to fail, as if 30 mins is the maximum). Oddly, I've only noticed this state of affairs recently - when the vehicle was younger, I can't recall it being so easy to get the radio to come on after shutting off the ignition.  French electrics?

As an avid camper I have learned the hard way to avoid any permanent current draws.
