Does Your Radio Stay On?!
 
I have noticed that the radio stays one whether the key is in or not. Open the door and close the door and the radio still stays on.

ANYONE ELSE?!

So what you're saying is I can turn the car off and leave and the radio can still be on?

Brokinarrow 05-07-2009 09:47 AM

The lights or the actual speakers? If its the lights, I know some cars the interior (and sometimes exterior) lights will stay on for a couple minutes after you shut it off and walk away.

Maybe its UFO flybys?

ChevyHawk 05-07-2009 09:49 AM

If I remember correctly, you have 1 hour before it shuts off. Plenty of time for a visit to lookout point (not that a Camaro would ever be a participant in a necking session). ;)

It's usually no more the 10 or 15 minutes or until a door is opened. In my 06 vette and 09 SRX the time is programable via the DIC.

CamaroHutch 05-07-2009 09:56 AM

My avalanche does the same thing. Open any door but the driver side, it will stay on about 15 min. As soon as you open the drivers side door, it shuts off.

CamaroScotty 05-07-2009 09:59 AM

Yep - turn on that radio with or without the keys.

But it shuts off when you open the door correct?

That could be getting changed in the next reflash coming up. Would that be in the BCM?

CamaroScotty 05-07-2009 11:31 AM

It goes off when you open the door...but you can turn it back on without the key and it will stay on.

What about the CD player? Is it a 6 disc Changer? (Boston)

mcernik 05-07-2009 01:00 PM

Nope Single CD

I think it's only 1 disc, but if you get a 2LT, 2SS, or 1LT with the Convenience & Connectivity package, then you get a USB port that you can plug an mp3 player or flash drive into. That's a lot more music and a lot less space than 6 cd's.

That is so crazy that it has a usb port....

I know, I love it. :) I'm making sure I've got all the cd's I own copied as mp3's and shopping around for nice big USB memory sticks so I can have all my music with me, all the time (without spending nearly as much money on an ipod or zune!)

When I open the driver's side door, my radio turns off.

NOPE, open both doors it stays on!

I can get in the can, without a key in....and simply turn on the radio and it stays on!

I emailed GM heard nothing back, so I posted here to see what you guy may have heard. Thanks!

Are you closing the doors before you turn on the radio? At the unveiling that I went to yesterday, if you leave the doors open then turn on the radio it stayed on but if you close the door first then turn the radio on , it turned off when you opened the door.

Read the sales literature or watch the sales videos?

2010 SS RS 05-10-2009 11:10 PM

Actually I noticed this in the dealer cars. I tried everything and the radio stayed on. Shut doors, opened doors, waited and it did not matter. How do you keep from running the battery down. You all say read this read that. Please post something up cause I cant get it to go off.
