JVD car radio. Why won't it shut off when key is shut off?


The radio has 2 power feeds, one is wired to battery so it has power all the time for memory and the other power feed is from the ignition circuit so when you turn the ignition on it turns the radio on. You need to determine if the ignition feed is shutting off with the ignition. If the power feed is shutting the power off then there is a problem with the radio. If not then there is a problem in the ignition circuit.

After replacing the battery on my Porsche Carrera 2000, I entered the wrong numbers a couple of times on the radio screen asking me to enter 4 digits and then the screen went on a WAIT signal. Now that I...


Yes - there is a solution here.

The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio until the WAIT period is over. Any interruption to the power causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.

If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!

Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!

Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature.


Additionally - for cheap code retrieval for Porsche and many other car radios please see this link.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Check and make sure the ignition switch is not worn out and allowing you to remove the key when the switch is turned backwards in teh accessory position. once the key is removed and the radio is staying on, turn the ignition without the key in it, both directions and see if it shuts off, if it does, menas work cylinder or key.

RADIO WON'T SHUT OFF WHEN CAR IS TURNED OFF AND KEY IS OUT OF THE IGNITION.


Is your car named Christine?

Either the radio is wired wrong - (is it possible it is wired directly to power?) or your ignition switch is allowing you to remove the key from the standby position.

Electrical problem headlights, radio does not stay on when ignition off


RE: Radio

If you mean the radio doesnt retain the memory presets and clock when you shut the car off or turn the key to the 0 position

that could mean that the yellow wire was not connected to the red or hot/positive lead when the radio wiring harness was connect

if this worked before and now it does check the main fuse box
also some radios have a inline fuse connected on the radio wiring harness (behind radio so you'll have to remove it to check, same thing with checking that the yellow wier is connected)

not sure what you mean by "electrical problem headlights"
some cars shut off the electrical current to the head lights (only power to running/park lights) when the ignition is shut off or the key is at position 0

Key stuck in the ignition


Well the radio code is an anti-theft issue. you have to take it to the dealership and they get your VIN number and they will retrieve the serial number to your radio. With that they can look up your code. It will cost at least $75 dollars.

Make sure they connect it back up correctly because then if you live in climates that reach under 20 degrees your radio will shut off. or when hit a bump in the winter your radio will shut off and you have to enter the code everytime it goes off.

I have an '01 montero sport XLS. Battery died and I had to experience this the hard way.
