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


Hi,

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

you have to do that cycle 3 times,battery needs to fully charged.
Hood to stay closed,doors also(roll down the drivers window)
Kill the DRL headlights if possible(try putting the E-brake on)
Crank and leave key on,10 min or till light goes out,then key off,,no need to wait 5 min here,crank again.leave key on,,,,,3 times.
By the way,disconnecting the battery in that vehicle will not do anything like clear codes or memory,may need the radio code in the owners manual also.

My radio wont play- its on and reads whats playing but no sound, doors dont ding when open, back inside lights wont come on


Some cars radio's will "lock" whenever they are disconnected from power. It is a safety feature to prevent theft. I'm not very familiar with this type of system, but I know that there is some sort of "unlock" code that must be used. I would try to call a local dealership or use good ol' google to find out more info on it.

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.

My 98 accords radio is reading err7 and will not turn on or play or anything


As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

I removed my battery and my radio no longer plays


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.

Parasitic draw on battery how to check on car with all those electronics still live with ignition key out of ignition lock


You will be able to help diagnose the problem by pulling fuses. Take a volt meter and put it to oms. Disconnect the positive battery cable. Put one end on the positive battery termanal and the other on the cable. Note the oms. Now, pull one fuze at a time until the oms drop considerably lower than before you pulled the fuzes. Thats the system that is drawing the power. Once you know the system you can track it down further. It could also be your altrenator. Disconnect it too and measure the oms before and after. take your time and do one system at a time noting the oms before and the oms after. My quickest guess it it is either your altrenator or your radio. Please note, you will have some "draw" no matter what because your clock radio or door lights will draw power. If you want to see this, test the oms with the doors closed and then test with the door open. The oms number will be higher with the door open.

If you don't have a volt meter, you can always test one fuze at a time over night. That would take considerably longer tho.
