radio does not shut off when key is out of ignition
when i shut the car off the radio is still on, need to restart and shut off car several times to
get radio to shut off.
Will it shut off when you open one of the doors? If so it is operating properly. If not possibly an ignition switch issue.
Check alternator output sounds crazy but a shorted diode or winding does crazy things
No, it stays on even when I open the doors. I can leave my car all night come back the next day (not turning the car on anytime in between) and I can turn on the radio without even putting the keys in the ignition.
Is it stock radio or an aftermarket? If aftermarket radio some people install them with a direct full time hot wire.
