Re: How do I turn off radio
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.

turn it off
then key off.
is my guess.
newer cars have radio on network, and cars BCM
remembers radios last state.
why not read the operators guide in the glove box
all that is explained, if radio still stock,
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.
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
this is such a lovely motor it would be a shame not let you in to the pleasure of music on the move in such a glorius vehicle with such a great history ,turn radio on and for the first number press the button 1 ,so say code is 2345 then you touch button 1 twice so 2 appears then button 2 three times then button 3 four times button 4 five times then press button 5 and it will work,Great history these motors i remember the first ones with a V4 2.0lt engine and they were so fast you outrun the local noddy cars with one ,get a early diesel perkins and take the lump out then mount a V6 zodiac engine and change the diff for a MK2 consul or zodiac and have a race with a rover V8 low line with a yellow stripe down the side and blue lights,
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.
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.
Remove rear retaining screws of RH front wheel splash shield for access to antenna lower retaining bolt.
Remove lower retaining bolt.
Remove radio antenna nut (18865) from top of motor tube and remove electric antenna through fender/splash shield access.
Disconnect signal cable and motor wire connector(s).
To install, reverse Removal procedure.
Tighten top radio antenna nut to 6-8 Nm (54-70 lb-in).
Tighten lower electric antenna retaining bolt to 5.8-7.8 Nm (51-69 lb-in).
Check operation of electric antenna and radio chassis .
Automatic Electric Antenna
NOTE: A power antenna mast which is bent or broken can be replaced without replacing the motor and tube assembly. Removal
Remove radio antenna nut (18865) and radio antenna stanchion (18919) .
Loosen retaining nut inside tube using 14 mm (9/16 inch) socket, and slide nut part-way up mast.
Raise antenna to run plastic drive wire at bottom of mast out of motor. Note direction of teeth on plastic drive wire.
Saw off damaged portion of antenna mast. Remove burrs from mast and slide nut and contact tube off stationary tube.
With the teeth on the plastic drive wire facing toward motor on antenna, push end of plastic drive wire of replacement mast assembly down into tube. Push it around curve at bottom of tube until end enters drive mechanism.
Run motor down while pushing on plastic drive wire until about 305 mm (12 inch) of wire has been drawn into the tube. Stop motor and insert bottom of antenna mast into tube. Lower mast.
Slide contact tube and radio antenna nut down antenna mast. Tighten nut to 0.45 Nm (4 lb-in).
Raise and lower antenna several times to ensure proper operation.
Sounds like the window motor is shorting...been to a car wash lately...or often? The easiest fix for this is to have Sears Auto or Walmart test your charging system...sometimes it's FREE or nominal charge unless you buy a battery... P.S. Walmarts "Everstart" is rated highly. Then, go to a BODY shop and ask them to diagnose your window motor...$50 + part, maybe $100 total. Good Luck...avoid automatic car washes
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!!
