If you just turn the car off one notch, the radio will stay on. If you turn the key all the way off and remove it, it will stay on for a short time delay, OR until you open one of the doors which will shut if off with the key out.

Mazda 6 - Wont start, just clicking noise when key is turned. Battery seems dead, but radio etc came on??

radio don't use as much voltages (AMPS) as the starter motor. remove battery and charge up. remember radio is coded so you will need to put the code in after. negative lead first off the battery.also have ignition turned to number 2 then turn off and you have 30 seconds to remove the battery. if not battery starter motor solenoid has failed and a new motor is needed. check battery first.

Something is draining my battery on my 2003 Chevrolet Suburban

often it is the tiniest light or circuit eg tailgate, trunk or door interior light switch. wait for dark and then check for the glove box light or under hood light or other interior light. is the radio turning off ok?
with the ignition and motor turned off connect a 12v voltmeter to the battery then disconnect/reconnnect one fuse at a time and observe when the voltmeter flickers. remember that alarm systems and clock in radio draw current at all times.
with the engine off, put your hand on the alternator. if it is hot then the battery is trying to make it spin like a motor due to a failed rectifier. these are built in to the alternator housing so an exchange alternator is needed.
it may be that your battery has seen better days. batteries are very sensitive to cold weather. have the battery load tested. better a new battery now than stuck in the snow with a dead engine

Radio turns on and off automatically and changes from tuner to CD searching for a disc every two/three minutes on its own! What's up with that? 1999 Ford Explorer - just purchased!

Sounds like a faulty radio or radio power connection, as you've just bought it, I'd go back to the dealer and ask him to check it out, after all, it should have some kind of warranty.

The gears on the automatic antenna are stripped so when I turn the car off the antenna motor runs non-stop trying to lower the antenna. How do I disconnect the motor?

If i remember correctly this cars ant is located on the pass/side fender, the best way without trying to pull the fuse because then you will loose other systems, look under the passenger side part of the dash, you will need to remove the cover if its still there, most older cars are missing this cover, there are a few screws holding the cover remove them and drop and pull cover out, next look under the dash you will see wires coming from the fender area towards the radio there are green and theres a plug there, look close to the right and just unplug the connector, have the key on so you can here when the ant motor stops running and this will take care of that problem. good day.

The automatic antenna does not rise when the radio

I disagree with Duane. What you need to do is turn on the ignition and power up the radio. If you hear the motor trying to work, you can try giving gentle assistance to the antenna as it may need cleaning/greasing. Turn the radio back off. You can have someone help you or you can hit ON and quickly step out and gently try to assist the antenna up. If it goes up, it probably needs to be cleaned and greased. This happened on my 300E before.

If you hear NOTHING from the antenna motor, you may need to check the cable that connects to the motor. It might be loose. If you can verify that power is reaching the motor and you are getting no result, then the motor may be burned out. But check all of the alternatives first as replacing the motor itself is much more expensive than the cables and such.

Remote start not working 2006 grand prix

To get the remote start going again, I remembered a time when my Explorer phob would not open the doors automatically, I was told to insert the key and toggle it from off to "run" (not starting it, but having the radio and lights come on) position about 4 - 5 times to reset it. I tried that with the car, and it worked!!
