My radio will not stay on when the key is out. it played 2 days and went off when the door was open.

I believe the timer is built into the radio, so maybe a rest will return it to the original functions. Disconnecting the battery may reset it but check to ensure it won't need a security code to get it to work again.

How to fix RBQ radio, disconnected battery now radio does not recognize cd


The radio/ cd unit, for your model Jeep, has a built in security code. When disconnecting the the battery it activates the security. The reason for this is to discourage someone stealing the radio, as it renders the unit useless. To re-activate the unit you will have to enter a pin number, which should be supplied with the vehicle when bought from the dealership ( check in your operating manual). If you don't have the pin number, contact your Jeep dealer, who can supply the required pin code. Usually the dealer will re-activate your radio/cd unit free of charge.

Best of luck

My 2002 impala radio heater blower and lights wont shut off after car car is off stays on till i disconnect the battery.

There may be a keep-alive relay or module that lets you play the radio after you turn the key off until you open the door.
This relay or module may have failed. Thats actually three different circuits but two are controlled by the key switch.
You may have to get a shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

You don't find much with the door jamb switches any longer. Its all done inside the door with the switches being on the door latch.
the radio should still be able to be turned off manualy ;)

Have a 2004 Chevy s10 ZR-2. When you turn truck off, radio would play and doors would lock until you opened door. Now, it all turns off with the truck. Checked most fuses that I thought it could be. Any...

This is actually a timed circuit but I don't have the exact location of the relay that controls it. Normally it would be a relay located on or near the interior fuse panel or one in the power distribution box under the hood. It should actually only keep the power on for about 5 min and is meant to save fuel and keep you from running your battery down at the same time. Now as far as what could be the problem, I would look at the relay and the door dome light activators. If one of those is shorted then it will short that as well. They control the power to the dome light also if the light switch is locked in the always on position or always off, controlling the dimming of the dash lights, it will effect the working of that circuit.

If you disconnected your battery and reinstalled and have the word "CODE" appearing you need to contact dealer w/your VIN# and they can get you code. It's theft deterrent anytime you disconnect battery or radio.
