Does it go off when you open the door? that might be normal if it has a delay module. if is stays on even with a door open, then the module is bad.

Volvo xc 90 2004 no working stereo problem icm ?

It might turn out to be a software problem. The dealer had to diagnose the problem to find out a software problem and had to replace the complete radio. I have to wonder if this will happen again. This car is completely computerize! They had to order a new radio in which it took two days and then had to compute the radio to recognize the car.

When there is a CD playing, there is no problem. But when I take the CD out, the radio does not function properly. It switches back to CD and then changes the radio station every 1-2 minutes!I can not turn...

Unfortunately, this sounds like an internal problem with the radio. Internal as in within the radio itself, not a wiring problem. Not really much you can do about it. Sorry. Probably need a new radio. Good luck.

Chevy 2002 malibu radio wont turn off

First of all, make sure your iginition switch is completely in the off position or your radio will stay on. I had problems with this and all I had to do was make sure my shifter was locked in the park position (try jiggling it around in park until it clicks). If that doesn't help, the fuse for the radio is located on the passenger side of the vehicle on the side of the dashboard- you have to open your door to access it.
