Hyundai i30 2013 model. Can not turn the radio / clock off. No key in ignition but radio continues to play. Turn the radio off (push button) and the digital clock displays. Worried about flat battery.


does it stay on even after the door has been opened? If so it is the retained accessory power system and it should shut off after the drivers door is opened. If not look in your owners manual or take it back to the dealer service center for correction.

Radio won't shut off on 2007 pontiac g6


Check wiring and see if power source is to wrong lead, usually the constant power wire would be wired to the clock or auto antenna. The poer source for turning the radio on should be wired to the power source that is tied to the ignition, so when you turn your key off the power will be off as well.

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

Radio won't turn off.


The radio should still shut off after 20 minutes even if the door is not opened. If it stays on longer than this there is still a problem..
